Positive about disabled people

We are positive about disabled people and are proud to display the disability symbol. The disability symbol has been developed by Jobcentre Plus to allow employers to show their commitment to good practice in recruiting and employing disabled people.Positive About Disabled People logo

It also lets disabled people know which prospective employer will be positive about their abilities.

We have been accredited to display the symbol and have made five key commitments:

  1. To interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities.
  2. To ensure there is a process in place to discuss, at any time, but at least once a year, what can be done to make sure disabled employees can develop and use their abilities.
  3. To make every effort to ensure an employee can remain in employment when they become disabled.
  4. To take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work.
  5. To review the five commitments each year and record what has been achieved. Plan ways to improve on them and let employees know about progress and future plans.
