Employment advice for disabled students

Employability advice

The number of organisations who are employing applicants with disabilities and health conditions is increasing. Many companies now present the 'Two Ticks' disability symbol.

This is displayed by companies who show a positive attitude towards job applications from disabled people. It's a commitment to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy, as well as making a conscious effort to make sure all employees develop an appropriate level of disability awareness.
