Disabled applicants

Creating an inclusive working environment that welcomes disabled applicants to The University of Manchester is really important to us. We are committed to equality of opportunity and aim to ensure that our workforce is representative of the diverse community we serve.

Disability Confident scheme

We have been awarded the Disability Confident Employer symbol by Jobcentre Plus, thanks to our commitment to the recruitment, retention and career development of disabled people and those with health conditions.

Our interview guarantee

The Disability Confident scheme includes a guaranteed interview for any disabled applicant who meets the minimum requirements for a job.

When you complete your job application form you will find a section entitled 'Guaranteed Interview Scheme' at the end of the form, after the Equality and Diversity Monitoring Form. If you feel that you have a disability as defined in this section, you can choose to complete the form and return it with the rest of your application. Providing that you meet the minimum criteria for the job, you will then be invited for interview.

Your Guaranteed Interview application will only be shared with the chair of the shortlisting panel and the local human resources team.

If you're unsure whether you should apply under the scheme or require further information, please contact our Disability Advisory and Support Service.

If you require copies of documentation in alternative formats – large print, Braille, etc – please email people.recruitment@manchester.ac.uk.
