RIDI Awards

Once a year we bring together leading changemakers in the recruitment sector to celebrate the very best of disability confident recruitment. Our free-to-enter awards are the highlight of the inclusive recruitment calendar, and the high calibre of entries really puts our panel of judges through their paces.

The 2024 RIDI Awards will open for entries on 09 July 2024. Please get in touch if you are interested in sponsoring this year’s Awards.

We have an amazing panel of judges who are leaders and experts in their fields and give their time and expertise voluntarily.
