Disability Job Center (DJC)

DJC are Pakistan’s first and the largest employment site dedicated to economic empowerment of Persons with Disabilities. Creating a culture where everyone can thrive and grow. Providing you with the best career development opportunities. Connecting you to entrepreneurship and microfinance opportunities. We keep you updated about the relevant developments.

We aspire to work in accordance with the UNCRPD Article 27 i.e. States Parties must promote employment opportunities and career advancement for Persons with Disabilities in the labor market, as well as assistance in finding, obtaining, maintaining and returning to employment.

We recognize that an important aspect of social inclusion is having the opportunity to work. All individuals including the persons with disabilities should have the opportunity to find and retain a job. However, the rate of employment among disabled persons is below that of people without disability. In Pakistan, many people with a disability want to have a job but they did not have a job portal which was specifically designed for them where they could easily search and apply for a job.

In order to fill this gap, a dedicated job portal for persons with disabilities was launched by STEP in collaboration with Telenor Pakistan. This is the first of its kind of job portal in Pakistan which will specifically serve persons with disabilities to get job opportunities, available in various sectors of the country.

Disability Job Center (DJC) is Pakistan’s first and the largest employment site connecting disabled job seekers with the employers. This job portal is entirely focused on the persons with disabilities. It is a comprehensive website where the employers from different sectors post jobs for the Persons with Disabilities and that provides updates on various opportunities to the Persons with Disabilities job seekers.
