Oxford Brookes has signed up to Disability Confident, a government sponsored scheme, and is committed to taking positive steps to attract, recruit, retain and develop disabled people and those with health conditions.
We guarantee to interview any disabled applicant who meets the essential selection criteria for the job.
To apply for a job, you must complete the online application form. If you require an alternative method of application, please contact the People Directorate Operations team on 01865 485960 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you complete the online job application, the final section “EDI Monitoring” includes questions about whether you consider yourself to have a disability.
Someone is disabled under the Equality Act 2010 if they have a physical or mental impairment that has a “substantial” and “long-term” adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
Any information provided is confidential and will be used for monitoring purposes only. It will not usually prompt a discussion about adjustments that you might need.
If you choose to declare a disability, you are automatically included in the Disability Confident Scheme unless you opt out. If you don’t wish to take part in the Scheme then you should select “no” in the drop down menu against the question “Are you taking part in Disability Confident?”.
If you require alternative arrangements, for example, for interview, delivery of presentations or any skills tests, please detail these in the “Additional notes” box.
Your inclusion in the Disability Confident Scheme, although not the nature of your disability, will only be shared with the Recruiting Manager at the shortlisting stage and will be available to the People Directorate Operations team.
If you require further information or have any queries, please contact our People Directorate Operations team on 01865 485960 or email email@example.com.
