There is a specific section on our application forms where you can indicate if you meet any of the criteria under the guaranteed assessment scheme and if you do, you will be shortlisted for assessment if you meet the essential job role criteria.

Do you consider yourself to be disabled?
Do you consider yourself to be a carer as defined under the Greater Manchester Carers Charter?
Have you previously been or are you currently in care?
Have you previously served in the Armed Forces as a regular or reserve?

Whether you are applying under the scheme or not, if you are disabled, we will ask you to let us know if you need any adjustments during the recruitment process to ensure it is inclusive and works for you.

We are committed to making reasonable adjustments throughout the recruitment process and if you are successful, we’ll make adjustments to your working environment.
