Apply for the ‘disability confident’ symbol

The disability confident symbol has replaced the ‘two ticks’ symbol.

You can use the disability confident symbol on adverts to show that you encourage applications from disabled people. You’ll need to sign up as a disability confident committed employer first - it’s free.

Alternative formats

You must provide information about the vacancy in alternative formats (for example, large print) on request if this is reasonable. You must also accept applications in alternative formats (for example, electronically) where possible.
