Stratford District Council awarded Disability Confident Employer status
Stratford-on-Avon District Council has been awarded the Disability Confident Employer standard.
To achieve this standard the District Council has shown a commitment to support and promote disabled people in the workplace.
- Ensuring our recruitment process is free from discrimination and available through a range of channels
- Making job advertisements accessible including providing information in accessible formats if required
- Offering an interview to those candidates who have a disability and meet the essential criteria for the role (detailed in the job description)
- Making reasonable adjustments as required.
Cllr Stephen Thirlwell, Deputy Leader says: “The District Council is committed to the recruitment and retention of people with disabilities and we are proud to have been recognised as a Disability Confident Employer. Disabled people can face many challenges getting and keeping a job, we hope local employers will take up a similar initiative.”
