Disability confidence

We’re proud to have been accredited a Disability Confident Leader and we’re committed to providing a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process.

We’ll offer an interview to disabled candidates who indicate they wish their application to be considered under our Disability Confident interview commitment, where they meet our selection criteria - which is section one of our person specification.

Some of our roles attract a high volume of applications and in some circumstances, where it is not practicable, we may need to limit the number of interviews offered to disabled and non-disabled candidates. We will provide reasonable adjustments as required. Details of the Disability Confident Scheme can be found on the website.
