University of Nottingham to become a Disability Confident employer


July 4th, 2018

The University of Nottingham is to become a Disability Confident employer.

Disability Confident is a scheme designed to help organisations improve how they attract, recruit and retain disabled staff and staff with health conditions.

The University is committed to the aims of Disability Confident and as part of the scheme, we will:

  • Ensure that our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible
  • Communicate our vacancies through a range of channels
  • Offer an interview to applicants with a disability who meet the minimum essential requirements of the role (as detailed within the role profile)
  • Anticipate and provide reasonable adjustments as required
  • Support any existing employee who acquires a disability of long-term health condition, enabling them to stay in work

During August/September 2018 members of the HR team will be running a number of hour-long briefing sessions which will cover the following:

  • Overview of the ‘Disability Confident Employer’ government scheme
  • How the scheme will support the University’s strategic aims
  • Level 1 – Disability Confident Committed – The Requirements
  • The benefits of the scheme
  • Offering an interview to disabled people who meet the essential criteria – Changes to the Vacancy Manager Recruitment system
  • Providing the opportunity to ask questions and seek clarification
