We are a Disability Confident Employer and we ensure that colleagues engaged in our recruitment processes are trained so that they understand our commitments and objectives related to disabled candidates.
We have an Occupational Health service who work with teams and colleagues across the University to ensure that we can offer cohesive support and adjustments to roles at Durham, thereby ensuring that, as far as reasonable, we can offer the same opportunities in our recruitment and employment processes to everyone who is engaged.
We also work with external partner organisations and schemes, such as Access to Work, to ensure that reasonable adjustments are made to overcome issues which colleagues may have in respect of the work environment or their role.
We have access to a University Counselling Service and a Disability Service, who can both provide valuable support. We are also focused on a well-being agenda which includes mental health, health surveillance and physiotherapy.
