Looking for work and Disability Confident

Looking for work and Disability Confident

When you're looking for work, look for the 'disability confident employer' symbol on adverts and application forms. The symbol means the employer is committed to employing disabled people. If a job advert displays the symbol, you'll be guaranteed an interview if you meet the basic conditions for the job.

The GOV.UK website has some useful links and advice about Disability Confident employers. 

You can also find out about jobs in your area, talk to jobs advisers and find out about support schemes for disabled employees at your local jobcentre. 

The Department for Work & Pensions also offer ‘Access to Work’ funding. This is funding that is available to help people with a disability move into and remain in employment.
