Adjustments During the Recruitment Process – How to Request Support if you have a Disability
Date: 01 December 2021
Recruitment processes are designed to be challenging and competitive however, for those with a disability, they can be impossible if appropriate support and adjustments are not put in place.
Employers don’t intentionally have barriers in their recruitment processes however they recognise that barriers may exist for those who have a disability or health condition and that is why they are more than happy to make adjustments to the process and / or provide support. The aim of which is to ‘level the playing field’; to ensure that no-one is either at an advantage or a disadvantage and instead ensure that everyone has the same opportunity to demonstrate their potential.
Not surprisingly, however, asking for this support seems daunting; but if you don’t request it, you may well be rejected for roles that you are more than capable of doing.
During this free webinar by Helen Cooke, leading expert in disability and student recruitment and Founder of MyPlus Students’ Club, will shed light on the support that employers can make, how the adjustment process works and advise applicants on the best way to request what they require.
During this webinar, you will have the opportunity to:

- Gain insights into how the adjustment process works
- Build your confidence to request the support you require
