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.

The Civil Service has made great strides in its diversity and inclusion agenda over recent years, and last week saw them celebrating National Inclusion Week. As part of this, Head of the Civil Service, Sir Jeremy Heywood, took a look back at their progress.
Applauding the work of the Talent Action Plan (TAP) and TAP refresh in March - focussed on recommendations surrounding gender issues, flexible working, supporting ethnic minorities and access for those with disabilities – Sir Jeremy is determined that, on his watch, diversity will remain a top priority. For an organisation that advises on and delivers so many public services, this is a welcome and exciting attitude for an employer of over 400,000 people.
Sir Jeremy emphasised there is more to do:
“To become the best we need to go up another level. We need to ensure that the changes in policy are accompanied by changes in culture throughout the Civil Service. And that means all of us looking at what we can do to make ourselves and the teams we work in more inclusive, so that we are not simply ticking the “diversity” box but are actually becoming an organisation that genuinely values difference not conformity.”
