Disability Confident

The University of Bath is committed to achieving an educational and working environment which provides equality of opportunity and freedom from unlawful discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, gender, marital status, disability, religious or political beliefs, age, sexual orientation or offending background.

We are an accredited Disability Confident employer and we are committed to building disability confidence and supporting disabled staff.

The Disability Confident scheme is an example of the University demonstrating commitment to ensure disabled people are treated fairly and have access to the same opportunities as non-disabled people. By using the Disability Confident logo we make it clear that we welcome disabled applicants for all roles across the University. 

 In particular we will:

  • ensure that our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible
  • guarantee to offer an interview to all applicants with a disability provided they meet the essential criteria for a role
  • anticipate and provide reasonable adjustments as required
  • support any existing employee who acquires a disability or long-term health condition, enabling them to stay in work.

Disabled applicants should indicate in the Equality of Opportunity section of the application form if they wish their application to be given consideration under the Disability Confident scheme. 

If you are invited to interview, please advise the recruitment administrator what adjustment you would require at the interview in as much detail as possible to enable arrangements to be put into place. 

As part of our commitment to Disability Confidence, we ask all applicants if they want to be considered under this scheme.  By opting-in to this scheme, you are disclosing that you have a disability solely for the purpose of the interview guarantee and we will not assume nor infer that you wish to disclose or record your disability in any other way – including any reasonable adjustments you may need if you are employed.

For feedback on job applications submitted under the Disability Confident scheme, please contact: Abi Lyons, Head of Employee Recruitment & Experience.
