You say that you are ‘Disability Confident Committed’. I have a disability but was not offered an interview. Why is this? banner

Being disability confident committed means that we will offer a job interview to candidates who declare that they have a disability AND meet the minimum criteria for the job role.

It is important to be aware that there may be occasions where it is not practicable or appropriate to interview every candidate who both declares that they have a disability and meets the minimum criteria. This could be occasions such as when there are a high number of applications and in seasonal times, when we may need to limit the overall numbers of interviews offered to both disabled and non-disabled applicants. In these circumstances the hiring manager will select the disabled candidates who best meet the minimum criteria for the job rather than all of those that meet the minimum criteria, as they would do for non-disabled applicants.
