Disability Confident

 

Disability Confident Employer

 

The Disability Confident Scheme aims to help employers make the most of the opportunities provided by employing disabled people. It is voluntary and has been developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives. The Disability Confident scheme has three levels that have been designed to support organisations.

 

JNCC Support Co. is a Disability Confident employer. This is an example of demonstrating commitment to ensure disabled people are treated fairly and have access to the same opportunities as non-disabled people. By using the Disability Confident logo, we make it clear that we welcome disabled applicants for all roles across our company. It will also show existing employees that we value their contribution and will treat them fairly if they become disabled.


As an internal or external applicant, JNCC Support Co commits to:

 

 - interviewing all applicants with a disability who meet the essential criteria on a person specification and consider them on their abilities;

 - providing a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process;

 - being flexible when assessing people, so disabled job applicants have the best opportunity to demonstrate that they can do the job and;

 - making workplace adjustments (also known as reasonable adjustments) as required.

 

If appointed, as a member of staff, we commit to:

 

 - ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss, at any time, but at least once a year, with disabled employees what can be done to ensure that they develop and use their abilities;

 - make every effort when an employee becomes disabled to ensure that they stay in employment;

 - take action to ensure that all employees develop an appropriate level of disability awareness to make these commitments work and;

 - review the commitments each year and plan ways to improve the experience for disabled people, by consulting key groups.

 

Reasonable adjustments

 

If a person with disabilities is put at a substantial disadvantage compared to a non-disabled person, we have a duty to make reasonable changes to our processes. 

 

If you need a change to be made so that you can make your application, you should contact recruitment@jncc.gov.uk or call 01733 562626 as soon as possible before the closing date to discuss your needs.

 

To be considered under the Guaranteed Interview Scheme, applicants will need to declare that they have a disability.

 

Disabled applicants should indicate if they wish to apply for the Guaranteed Interview Scheme by ticking the box in the Guaranteed Interview Section on the application form.

 

If you are invited to interview, please advise the recruitment administrator who has invited you, what adjustment you would require at the interview in as much detail as possible to enable arrangements to be put into place.
