Applying with a Disability

Account for differences on your CV

When completing a CV or application form, exactly the same principles apply for applicants with disabilities as they do for those without a disability.

However, the difference is that you may need to explain certain elements of your application that relate specifically to your disability e.g. a gap in your education, lower academics or lack of work experience. In this ebook, we show you how to account for these differences.
