EBU Job WebsiteCategories of jobs undertaken by blind and partially sighted people
The European Blind Union website is offering you the opportunity to tell visually impaired people, employers and policy makers across Europe about the huge range of jobs undertaken by visually impaired people.
There are two ways you can take part :
- Draw our attention to websites that provide information about jobs that visually impaired people are doing ; and/or
- Provide some examples that will be posted on EBU website.
You can look at an example by going to Nursery school manager.
We need your contribution in a specific format and in English, but the amount of information is short and should not be difficult to provide. Please fill in and submit the submission form. We would also welcome digital photographs wherever possible.
Take this opportunity to tell others about the success of visually impaired people at work in your country - that employment is possible, fulfilling and helps with independence.
