Disability Confident is a government initiative creating a movement of change, encouraging employers to think differently about disability and take action to improve how they recruit, retain, and develop disabled people. Being Disability Confident is a unique opportunity to lead the way in our community. It was developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives.
As a Level 2 Disability Confident Employer we:
- have undertaken and successfully completed the Disability Confident self-assessment
- are taking all the core actions to be a Disability Confident employer
- are offering at least one activity to get the right people for our business and at least one activity to keep and develop our people
The Disability Confident Scheme is an example of Fylde Council demonstrating our commitment to ensure that all employees, new and old, are treated fairly regardless of disability. We want to challenge behaviours and increase the understanding of disability. The Disability Confident Scheme has guided us to draw from the widest possible pool of talent, securing high quality staff who are skilled, loyal, and hard working.
If a candidate meets all the essential criteria and is offered an interview, we will endeavour to make any reasonable adjustments required. If successful, we will also make reasonable adjustment to how and where they work.
