How can you support disabled applicants?

The Equality Act 2010 requires the University to make reasonable adjustments to their practices and premises to accommodate a disabled applicant, where some arrangement or physical feature of the premises causes a substantial disadvantage.

This could involve providing information in alternative formats or making other reasonable adjustments. Further information is available in the HR guidance for managers on recruitment, section reasonable adjustments

In many cases the funding for these adjustments can be accessed centrally or through schemes such as access to work. Information and advice can be sought from the University’s Staff Disability Advisor, placed in the Disability Support Office

The University's Job Opportunities pages contain valuable information for disabled applicants including:

  • Role of the Disability Support Office
  • Travel to interview and building accessibility
  • Confidentiality and Disclosure
  • Disability Confident Scheme 

In addition a map has been produced by AccessAble which shows all accessibility around the campus.
