Eastleigh, Hampshire, 11th April, 2023 – Rangam and BASE have embarked upon a partnership to collaborate at an operational and strategic level. The aim of the partnership is to drive greater inclusion within the workplace of neurodiverse, disabled, and disadvantaged job seekers.

Rangam, who provides autism, neurodiversity, and disability hiring solutions, has extensive expertise in working with employers to create accessible career opportunities whereas BASE and its members have a proven track record of supporting job seekers who are considered furthest from the labour market into sustainable real jobs. Within the Supported Employment model, which BASE members utilize, employers are valued as equal partners, meaning that at an operational level, Rangam will match locally supported employment providers with employers who are keen to create accessible opportunities.

“Embedding the Supported Employment model into business, drives genuine culture change, which is why we’re also delighted to announce that Lee Corless, EVP, Head of Global Expansion, People & Culture for Rangam, has joined the BASE National Executive Committee (NEC). Lee will be volunteering his time to BASE on the NEC to lead on National Employer Partnerships, ensuring that the voice of the employer and business is heard,” remarked Laura Davis, CEO of BASE.

"This is a great opportunity, and I am excited and confident that this partnership will drive greater inclusion within the workplace and reduce the disability employment gap. With common goals, Rangam and BASE will strive to work with employers to establish inclusive recruitment which meets the needs of businesses and provides autistic, disabled and neurodivergent job seekers with sustainable employment across the UK,” said Corless.
