  • More jobs for the blind

    Did you know that among all blind and deaf young persons in the Netherlands 70 percent is jobless? We think this is a ridiculous percentage. Our main goal is to reduce unemployment among talents that are blind or deaf by combining their strengths and capabilities to labour where they can perform.

    CtheCity is about the beauty of experiencing with your other senses. To open your eyes for a new world and introduce a new way of perceiving. For all blind tour guides it creates the opportunity to gain work skills, achieve goals and receive true feedback on finished tasks. Meanwhile sister company Ctalents seeks for a job where they will be at their best at one of the many companies that are open to a diverse and inclusive workforce.

    More and more large and midsized companies opens up to workers that developed one sense more than the other. CtheCity and Ctalents helps both workers and employers to find each other and match long term jobs to increase performance for both.

    Can you C talents? More info can be found on www.ctalents.nl
