University is an education in the broadest sense. Our University section will enable you to make the most of your time at University and take advantage of all of the opportunities available to you.
Making the most of your time at University
In this section you can find all the advice and guidance you need as you apply for jobs and prepare for interviews.
In the Recruitment section there is a wealth of information about completing applications forms, online tests, and the various stages in the recruitment. Whilst the Disability section provides advice on how to manage your disability during the recruitment process including information on how to inform an employer of what you require and referring to your disability during an interview.
Managing Your Disability
The Organisations section is where you can find out about various organisations, the opportunities they offer and their individual approach to disability.
Profiles / Stories
It’s always great to hear from those who have been successful.
This section profiles many individuals, working across different industries, at various stages of their careers. Their interviews demonstrate that is possible to have a successful career regardless of whether or not you have a disability. They also illustrate the adjustments that can be made in the workplace.

Yes – there was an option to list any relevant medical conditions during the application process. Once I was offered the job, Accenture arranged an Occupational Health Assessment for me. This allowed them to get guidance from a doctor on what adjustments should be made to help me perform at my best. My epilepsy and the associated medication causes side effects so I made sure these were made clear to both the doctor and the company.
Friends I knew at Accenture recommended the company to me, as they found their work stimulating and provided many opportunities to further their personal developments. I knew I wanted to apply after I looked on the Accenture website which lists the type of work employees are involved with, as well as the Health & Wellbeing aspects of the company.
The most important thing to do is ensure you take regular breaks and eat/drink sufficiently!
Another action that you should take is to have regular catch ups with your manager so you can track your performance. Many disabilities aren’t visible – for instance, my epilepsy medication has a lot of mental side effects - so your manager can’t help you if you do not let them know the reasons you are having difficulties. Don’t be afraid of speaking to them about your limitations, it’s their responsibility to ‘manage’ their team help them where required. Accenture’s senior staff are brilliant at this. The pressure of being the perfect employee, coupled with the idea that starting work early and working late into the night is good for your career, is without doubt a catalyst for burnout.
