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.

Linklaters is the only firm to have market-leading teams across the globe covering a full range of practice areas. This, combined with the breadth of our client base (including leading financial institutions, governments and high-profile companies), sets us apart from our competitors. Our lawyers work on the most high-profile and complex work and are recognised as being leaders in their areas of practice. One of our priorities is to create a truly inclusive culture. Our goal is to foster a working environment in which individual differences are respected and valued, and everyone has the opportunity to excel.

For the last two years we have participated in OPEN careers event and are members of the Graduate Recruiters Disability Cafe Club. As part of our corporate social responsibility activities, we have built up a relationship with the Disability Law Service and have provided secondees as well as regular volunteers, through our London Litigation Department, to assist with the provision of free legal advice to people with disabilities. www.linklatersgraduates.co.uk, https://www.facebook.com/linklatersgradsuk, https://twitter.com/LinklatersGrads
Being a global organisation means much more than having offices around the world. If we are to be the leading global law firm, we have to have a team that reflects the cultures and values of the communities and arenas in which we work

If you consider yourself to have a disability you should feel confident to disclose this at any point during the recruitment process. There may not be the need to disclose your actual disability as long as we can provide the right level of support based on the information you give us. If you are not sure what adjustments you require, or if they are needed, we will work with you to establish the most suitable adjustments at each stage of the recruitment process and beyond

Where necessary the HR department may refer you to Occupational Health or the Health and Safety team who work closely to identify any adjustments required for each individual and will endeavour to ensure that any reasonable adjustments are made to meet your needs.
Both our Occupational Health and Health & Safety functions operate an ‘open door’ policy whereby any of our employees can speak to a member of the team and discuss any concerns that they may have. If there is anything further needed, they will liaise with the relevant HR contact and the individual to arrange any reasonable adjustments. We also have GPs available onsite for further support who are able to liaise with Occupational Health/Health & Safety and/or HR with the permission of the individual. We also have private health cover that is available to all (as a taxable benefit) which covers pre-existing medical conditions, and an Income Protection benefit that insures individuals should they become too ill to work. Financial concerns The cost of any reasonable adjustments required for you to carry out your work will be met by the firm and where necessary we are able to investigate if an individual is entitled to additional financial support by external organisations. Adjustments There are a number of adjustments that can be made to meet each individuals needs. We work to best practice by offering workstation assessments for staff to ensure their comfort and safety and will ensure that all reasonable adjustments are implemented.
