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.

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.
“Inclusion is so much more than just an absence of exclusion. It is a proactive, consistent and concerted effort to articulate that everyone is included, and to share our stories and experiences, so that everyone knows that they are welcome, and able to truly be their real selves at work”. Tricia Driver (@TriciaDriver), UK Talent Diversity and Inclusion Lead

“Our culture of Active Inclusion means that we all take personal responsibility for creating an inclusive organisation, supporting and enabling our colleagues to be their real selves at work. A huge part of that is having our employees share their own experiences, to help others understand their world a bit better”. Laura Gardner (@la_gardner2702), UK Active Inclusion Team
At Capgemini, we use strengths-based assessments. The strengths-based approach aims to be fresh, positive and engaging, and to offer genuine insights into candidates’ innate aptitudes. While competency-based interviews focus on what you can do, strengths-based interviews focus on what you like doing.
Below are just some of the strengths we view as being vital to our success and enjoyment at Capgemini:
It’s incredibly important to us that all of our candidates are given a level playing field from which to perform during our assessment processes.Therefore, if you have a disability of any kind, and would like to speak with someone in confidence either in advance of applying or when you’ve applied, about adjustments for the selection process, please contact our dedicated point of contact, Kerry Blondell (firstname.lastname@example.org or @kblondell), who will be able to support you. We will be guided by you in terms of the adjustments you need, and the information you provide will be treated in complete confidence.
