Deaf2Work understand Deaf people. I understand the barriers, which make it difficult to find a job. I know Deaf people can make fantastic workers if given the chance. I am here to show you the path back into employment, using my specialised knowledge built up from the past 10 years.
My name is Tony Barlow and Deaf2Work is my 1st time going into business. In the past 10 years, I was an Employment Consultant; Senior Employment Adviser; Job Coach; Work Placements Coordinator and Employment Adviser. Most of these jobs are aimed at supporting deaf people via deaf charities and organisations – which is my passion since I am profoundly deaf.
My previous jobs involved working alongside with JobCentre and the big names in private sector, for example, A4e; Remploy; Shaw Trust; Ingeus and so on. This added to my knowledge of how to reach the right people and understand the system. If you would like to know more about my work background, please feel free to have a look at my page on LinkedIn.
My family language is British Sign Language and I can too communicate through speaking and lipreading – but that depends on the person and the environment. Therefore, I feel I am well placed to provide understanding, empathy and deliver the suitable employment advice to meet your needs.
