Come and meet Atosser!
Poverty Pimps Atos Origin, the sharks responsible for the harassment of sick and disabled claimants, are set to recruit hundreds of medical staff to carry out there notorious assessments on everyone receiving Incapacity Benefit.
As part of this Atos will be having a stall at the annual BMJ Recruitment Fair in Islington Design Centre on 30th September/1st October.
A protest has been called outside on the 30th where we will be not just demonstrating but handing out information to potential recruits on the devastation these tests have caused to the health of already vulnerable people.
“Please come and see us at stand 54 of the BMJ Careers Fair” say Atos on their website. Ok then we will.
Atos will also be exhibiting at the RCN Bulletin Jobs Fair at the same venue on 13/14th September and the CSP Congress in Liverpool on October in Liverpool on 7/8th October. We might go and see them there too.
The BMJ Recruitment Fairs Website is at: http://careersfair.bmj.com/en/1/home.html
No doubt a whole host of private companies itching to get their hands on the NHS will be recruiting there as well. We might have a chat with a few of them as well.
