Does a candidate need to disclose their disability to us?

Does a candidate need to disclose their disability to us?

No, it’s the candidate’s choice to disclose any disability.

Often, disabled candidates are worried that doing so could negatively affect their chance of securing a job because of their previous experiences. We encourage employers to create a culture for disclosure so that they can make any reasonable adjustments to the process. They should also clearly state in their company profile and job post(s) that inclusion is part of their company culture.

We also recommend that job posts state that applications from disabled candidates are encouraged.

This way, employers have the opportunity to make any necessary adjustments to enable candidates to showcase their skills and qualities.

Want to ensure that your profile and job posts are as inclusive as possible? Please see our article on Writing accessible job descriptions.
