Mission, Vision, Overall description of product / company

Jamba (from latin – support, pillar) is an online platform and consultancy service providing environment for preliminary training and selection for career conversion for people with disabilities in Bulgaria.

The selection process of the platform is a specialized online environment for meetings between employers seeking candidates for different vacant positions and employees with various potential.

Matching the employer`s criteria and aligning the candidates, having in mind their individual necessity for accessible work environment.

Jamba is providing environment for building skills for the candidates, presenting them with different opportunities for trainings and internships. This program we call Jamba MIXER.

The mixer is probably the most important part of the career development of our Jamba HEROES, we know that now there are two big constraints with hiring people with disabilities. From one side, the prejudices from the employers, but also lack of professional skills from the candidates.

– Educate the business on the potential of people with different abilities
