Disabled applicants, in line with our commitment to the Disability Confident Scheme, will be guaranteed an interview where they meet the essential criteria and declare their disabled status. The Trust will accept applications in other formats where applicants have disabilities that require a reasonable adjustment for them to be able to apply for vacancies; consideration in respect of additional time for postage/delivery time etc will be given.
