Information for disabled job applicants

Oxford Brookes welcomes job applications from disabled people, who are currently under-represented in the University.

If you have any access requirements please indicate them on your application form, and we will try to meet them.

You can check details of access to Brookes buildings in our DisabledGo access guides. During 2011-2013 we have major construction work at our Gipsy Lane site, so please check the weekly Space to Think updates to see how access routes are affected.

Access to Work provides funding for support for disabled people at interviews and during employment e.g. British Sign Language Interpreter, additional travel costs. Contact them as soon as possible if you may want support at interview stage.

We are committed to the Positive about Disability/Two Ticks Scheme.  All disabled applicants will be considered under the scheme unless they choose to opt out.  This means that if a disabled applicant meets the essential criteria for a post they will be shortlisted for interview.

All members of staff who take part in interview panels have attended Recruitment and Selection training within the last three years, which covers equality and diversity issues. They will be asking all applicants similar questions to discover which applicant best meets the essential and desirable characteristics in the Person Specification for the post.
