Blind man ‘denied job interview due to guide dog’ is offered new role

Company cancelled Ian Brooks’ job interview because it said it could not accommodate his guide dog

Glastonbury based computer programmer Ian Brooks has been unemployed for several years due to his disability. In February, his story went viral on social media after he claimed a company cancelled his job interview upon learning he used a guide dog due to his disability.

However, a London-based technology firm, Conspexit – who develop apps for blind and partially-sighted people, saw his story online and have now offered him a job.

Mr Brooks said:

“It still doesn’t feel real. I’d just like to thank everyone out there who has been on my side.”

Mr Brooks will start his new job at the beginning of July, and will be working remotely from home.

As human, we have to fight the tendency to moderator people according to whether we just like them or not, as opposite to making sure that the candidate we’re interview are being grade on job-relevant individuality.
