Let Us Know


Let Us Know

There are several reasons why it’s a good idea to share information about your disability or long-term health condition with the University.

It helps us:

  • to work out what changes we might need to make, and what support we might be able to offer you
  • monitor our policies and practices so that we can ensure disabled people are treated fairly
  • provide statistics to our funders and regulators

Job applicants

If you’re applying for a job with us, you will be invited to let us know about your disability as part of the standard application process through our recruitment system.

If you are invited to an interview, then you will be asked if you want us to make any particular arrangements or adjustments. Your input is vital as you know your condition better than anyone. Please don’t hesitate to let us know what will help you by completing the Disability Information Form and we will do our best to provide it.

If you want to discuss your situation, or have any problems completing your application, please contact


As a colleague, there are two ways you can let us know about your disability. We know that conditions and their impact can vary, so use these whenever you need to update this information.

  1. Monitoring – you can update your HR record using the MyDetails app, available from the Top Task menu on the staff homepage, without anyone else needing to be involved
  2. Workplace Adjustments – to discuss the way your disability affects you and what adjustments we may need to make, see our guidance on Workplace Adjustments

If you need any help, speak to your local People Services team.
