If you have a disability that may affect your performance at any stage of the recruitment process, please let us know about any help you need as soon as possible and we will work with you to make sure any appropriate support is in place.
We want to support you if you need any adjustments in the recruitment process whether you feel you qualify through the Disability Confident scheme or not.
We consider visible and non-visible disabilities, chronic health conditions, learning differences, mental ill health or neurodiversity.
Examples include dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism, epilepsy, ADHD, schizophrenia, chronic fatigue and diabetes.
If you require particular adjustments to support your application, such as alternative formats (e.g. braille) or if you have any building access requirements, please let us know at email@example.com
Some other adjustments we can offer include:
- Support with applications or interviews
- Interviews at a time of day to best suit the candidate
- Advice about assistive technology
- Sign language interpretation
- Additional time in interviews and tests
- Access to remote interviews where possible
- Ensuring questions asked are direct using clear language and avoiding the use of jargon and acronyms.
- Opportunity to pre-visit the venue before interviews for candidates to familiarize themselves with surroundings/ meet their interviewer.
- Use of flash cards as memory prompts where appropriate.
- Provision of a quiet space to take time out during interviews if needed
- Use of work trials as an alternative to interviews, where appropriate.
These are only a few examples and we are open to discussions about other suitable adjustments which might be helpful.
