As a Trust we guarantee to interview anyone with a disability whose application meets the minimum criteria for the post, providing they have selected they wish to be considered under the guaranteed interview scheme on their application form.
What is the two ticks scheme?
The two ticks scheme  is a recognition given to employers based in Great Britain who have agreed to take action to meet five commitments regarding the employment, retention, training and career development of disabled employees. It is represented by the two ticks disability symbol (displayed right) that participating organisations are authorised to display.

What commitments do employers make?
Employers who use the symbol have agreed that they will take action on these five commitments:
  • to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities
  • to ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss, at any time, but at least once a year, with disabled employees what can be done to make sure they can develop and use their abilities
  • to make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
  • to take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work
  • each year to review the five commitments and what has been achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans
