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.

Between the 9th and 15th May, people around the country are going blue for ME Awareness Week.
ME (Myalgic Encephalopathy) or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, is a condition that affects the lives of around 250,000 people in UK. Invisible to the eye, ME is a debilitating condition, with suffers experiencing unbearable aches and pains, extremely low energy, restless sleep, and “brain fog” (to name just a handful of symptoms). Education, employment and even interaction with friends and family can be extremely difficult, if not impossible to cope with. A quarter of ME sufferers are housebound or confined to bed for months or even years. There is currently no known cure.
Many students and graduates we talk to battle invisible conditions and disabilities that seriously impact their lives, with anxiety, fatigue and even depression resulting from the stresses and pressures of coping with their condition while studying or working.
Employers are becoming increasingly aware of the challenges faced by those with chronic conditions and we have two stories right here on the Great With Disability site to encourage readers living with an invisible condition. Gabriella-Michela Ragno, a Group Talent Acquisition Coordinator at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, shares her experiences of graduating and transitioning into working life and Rachel Hallett discusses life as a Masters student with an invisible illness.
For more information about ME and to find useful resources, visit the ME Association website.
