Employment advisor and deaf equality campaigner

I’m an employment advisor and campaign for deaf equality because…

Brian Kokoruwe

I’m passionate about providing support to those who are underprivileged. I became profoundly deaf following meningitis when I was 12, and didn’t get much encouragement while I was at school, but the National Deaf Children’s Society supported me and gave me the determination to continue my education and get a career.

I’ve worked in banks, I’ve been the team leader at a college, and I’ve worked in fashion. I’ve also written my autobiography. Now I work for the Royal Association for Deaf People, give deaf and deafblind people employment support, run my own Deaf Equality Organisation and also manage my own property portfolio.

To be able to do my jobs, I benefit from Access to Work BSL support, and use a mobile phone and a laptop. I believe you should always go for your dream job. Don’t be afraid to tell employers which reasonable adjustments you think they need to make to enable you to work for them.

Aim high!

Brian Kokoruwe
