Discuss your disability

We are very proud to be a Disability Confident leader and as part of our commitment we ask all applicants if they want to be considered under the Guaranteed Interview scheme. By opting-in to this scheme, you are disclosing that you have a disability solely for the purpose of the interview guarantee. In order to ensure this, you should detail in the Equality of Opportunity section of your application if you wish to be given consideration under this scheme and if you need any adjustments to be made to the interview / selection process. 

A disability is not only physical but can also be mental, and is one which has a long-term and substantial effect on your daily life.

Reasonable Adjustments to our recruitment process.

If you would like to discuss any reasonable adjustments we can make to our candidate application process please do get in touch with one of our Recruitment Team. Adjustments could include, but are not limited to, availability of job descriptions and application forms in different formats such as large print or braille; correspondence or anything you may need when visiting us for an interview, for example, additional time for those with dyslexia; a job coach to attend and support you or the provision of assistive technology. 

If I am shortlisted for interview, do I have to disclose my disability?

You are under no legal obligation to disclose that you have a disability (unless there are very specific health and safety risks) however, you may wish to inform a Recruitment Coordinator of your disability so that we can support you and ensure any reasonable adjustments are put in place.

If I am appointed, how will the University of Bath support me?

We are positive about employing disabled people and are committed to building disability confidence  and supporting disabled staff. If you are appointed, we will work with you to make any necessary reasonable adjustments to how and where you work.
