HuHa PR has been appointed by Evenbreak, the first global job board for disabled people, by disabled people.
The appointment will see the agency support the job board as it aims to grow awareness throughout the disabled community and among employers who want an inclusive workforce.
This summer was particularly busy for Evenbreak as the job board sponsored a number of high profile events, including the Para Swimming World Championships in Manchester and the accessible Morph’s Epic Art Adventure London, and joined the Disability Ai Alliance.
July also saw the launch of their first TV commercial by Evenbreak. The commercial stars some of the job board team as they reenact the challenges faced by disabled people when job hunting. The first TV commercial was aired in support of the controversially titled documentary Rosie Jones: Am I a R****d, that raises awareness of ableist trolling.
Evenbreak’s head of marketing Jemma Redden said: “I’m really excited to be collaborating with HuHa on our PR strategy. Lisa and Victoria have a wealth of experience and they have already created some fantastic ideas to help us reach more disabled candidates and HR/talent teams.”
Lisa Hughes, cofounder of HuHa PR added: “Victoria, Haley and I are honoured to be working with Evenbreak at such a crucial time, this summer they sponsored some amazing initiatives and it is our job to ensure the awareness raised through those events is amplified to those who count. Evenbreak joins the dots by introducing disabled people who want work to employers who want a diverse workforce. The work Evenbreak does is invaluable as they don’t just offer employment but offer a significant life changing experience for people of all abilities, offering opportunity and confidence. Evenbreak also has the influence to make the workplace inclusive for everyone.”
