Advice about the Two Ticks Guaranteed Interview Scheme
Adjustments to interview
Access to Work offers advice to employers and help with extra costs which may arise because of your needs. This can include funding for a support worker, equipment you need at work, or adapting premises to meet your needs. It can also contribute towards the cost of getting to work if you cannot use public transport.
Access to Work will often fund communication support at interview, for example for BSL users. If you feel that you may require adjustments during the interview process or any associated assessments, please contact the Disability Support Office to discuss your options.
Successful job applicants
You may choose to tell the University that you are disabled when you accept your job here, by ticking the relevant box on your Monitoring Form. However, as this information is confidential and used for monitoring only, this will not usually prompt a discussion about adjustments that you might need.
The easiest way to disclose is to complete the Support Questionnaire (included in your Job Contract Pack) before starting your job so that we can look at adjustments prior to your start date. This questionnaire is returned directly to the Staff Disability Adviser, who will then contact you to discuss your requirements.
If you would prefer to contact the Staff Disability Adviser directly prior to your job start, please contact the Disability Support Office and we can look at your requirements.
