We are a proud Disability Confident Employer. This means we promote a positive culture of being disability confident across our workplace.
Disability Confident is a government scheme that helps employers recruit and retain talented disabled employees. We promote equal opportunities throughout our recruitment process and within our workplace.
As a Disability Confident Employer we:
have undertaken and successfully completed the Disability Confident self-assessment.
are taking all of the core actions to be a Disability Confident employer.
are offering at least one activity to get the right people for our business.
and at least one activity to keep and develop our people.
Under the scheme we are committed to the following:
we advertise vacancies through a range of channels, displaying the disability confident badge in our adverts and on our website. This shows that we encourage applications from people with disabilities.
we guarantee an interview to applicants with disabilities, who meet the minimum essential criteria for a job.
we proactively offer and provide reasonable adjustments so that people with disabilities are not disadvantaged when applying for and doing their jobs.
we support existing employees who acquire a disability or long term health condition, enabling them to stay in work.
Our organisation is built around getting the best person for the job and supporting them in their work - regardless of their circumstances. We are continually building our understanding about disability and celebrating our differences.
