Discuss your disability

We are very proud to be a Disability Confident leader. As part of our commitment, we offer all applicants the opportunity 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. You can request this in the Equality of Opportunity section of your application. You can also let us know if you need any adjustments to be made to the interview/selection process.

We are an Autism friendly University and our Recruitment Team are Ambassadors for Autism. Please contact us in confidence to find out how we can adapt our process for you. 

Reasonable adjustments to our recruitment process

If you would like to discuss any reasonable adjustments we can make to the application process, please get in touch with 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?

There is no legal obligation for you 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.

How we'll support you if you're appointed

We  are committed to building disability confidence and supporting staff with disabilities. If you are appointed, we'll work with you to make any necessary reasonable adjustments to how and where you work.

Our campus and city buildings are disability friendly with lifts and ramps for ease of access to wheelchair users. We have multiple disabled parking bays across our car parks which are available to staff.
