Recruitment and disabled people

Reasonable adjustments

You can ask if a candidate needs an adjustment to the recruitment process to allow them to be considered for the job, or you can wait to be told.

You must make adjustments if they’re reasonable, for example allowing:

  • wheelchair users to have their interview on the ground floor
  • candidates to complete a written test using a computer

After you’ve made a job offer, you can ask what adjustments they’ll need to do the job.

You can get help paying for extra support in the workplace through an Access to Work grant but you cannot use the money for reasonable adjustments.
