Double tick scheme

Positive about disabled people logo

We have signed up to the Department for Work and Pensions two tick symbol ‘positive about disabled people’.

This demonstrates to disabled job seekers and disabled employees that it has agreed to make five commitments designed to ensure that people with a disability have every opportunity to access employment and develop their careers with the Council.

The commitments are as follows:

  • To interview all applicants with a disability who meet the essential criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their merits.
  • To ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss at any time, but at least once a year, with disabled employees what we and they can do to make sure they develop and use their abilities.
  • To make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment.
  • To make every effort to ensure employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make our commitments work.
  • Each year to review the five commitments and what has been achieved, to plan ways to improve on them and to let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans.
