Help for people with a disability

How we can help you apply for a job with us.

At West Sussex County Council we do not discriminate against disabled people and we try to treat everyone equally and fairly.

We treat people as individuals and we want to help disabled people to get a job with us.

If someone with a disability meets the essential entry criteria for a job, then we guarantee them an interview.

The entry or essential criteria are written on the role profile or job description.

If you have a disability, you need to do two things to make sure you are shortlisted:

  1. Tell us how you meet the essential entry criteria in your job application form.
  2. Tick the box on your application form to say you have a disability.

If you have a learning disability and/or are on the autistic spectrum, you can apply for any of our vacancies using the Easy read application form below.

We are also developing jobs for those with a learning disability and/or who are on the autistic spectrum through the Aldingbourne Trust’s WorkAid Scheme.

If you want to find out more about disclosing your disability or about the Equality Act, please read the two Easy read guides below.
