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.

"High Functioning Autism is a largely misunderstood condition. I like to think of it as an ability, rather than a disability, and employers do too, with more and more discovering the benefits of High Functioning Autism in the workplace. What does it mean for me to have High Functioning Autism? It means that social skills don’t come naturally to me, but my plus is that it also means that I’m logical, can solve problems quicker, process data faster, maintain focus for longer and have key desirable traits like loyalty and honesty. I have had to dedicate time and effort to overcome the drawbacks of the condition and improve my social skills, which can be a daily struggle, but on the whole I have grown into my High Functioning Autism and it has given me character. Character which has helped me to secure work experience and internships at bulge bracket investment, commercial and retail banks." - Ed Lee

Carlota & Dyslexia
"I didn’t know I had dyslexia until very recently. During my first year at university, no matter how hard I tried, I found it difficult to work as quickly or as clearly as my course mates. It was hard to find out that I was dyslexic so late, as it meant that I had gone through most of education with no support for my learning.
