Disabled people’s preference on scope of work
According to the official website of capital akimat, today in the capital employed about 200 people with disabilities. This is about 50% of the total number of disabled people who have applied to the employment Center of Astana.
In total, the employment Center of Astana akimat received more than 456 applications from citizens with a particular degree of disability. The most popular specialties among them were vacancies in the field of education, health and social services, art and culture, wholesale and retail trade, construction and industry. The field of transport, information and communication, as well as public administration are less popular.
«If a person does not have the necessary degree of qualification or to get the desired job he needs to improve his skills, we will organize courses. After their completion, a person receives a certificate with the further opportunity to find a job. If a person does not have a diploma or qualification, or he wants to learn a new profession, we, with the support of NCE «Atameken» conduct courses for him «Fundamentals of entrepreneurship». After that, he can open his own business, thereby creating additional jobs,” the head of the Department for working with persons with disabilities of the employment Center of Astana akimat said.
In turn, many employers create and open vacancies for the group of people who are forced to stay at home because of their health condition and can only work remotely at home.
«Special conditions for work are created for many disabled people. For example, people diagnosed with cerebral palsy or hemodialysis cannot come to work. But even if they work remotely, then official employment contracts are concluded with them and all the necessary social payments and taxes are made», - Rosa Baisalbayeva added.
To apply to the employment center the following documents are required: identity card, certificate of local residence, certificate of disability issued by the medical expert Commission, as well as a list of works that are recommended to this person, depending on the degree of his disability.
