‘Disability Confident’ interview scheme.

  • As part of Welsh Governments commitment to encouraging disabled people to apply to the Welsh Government they will offer an interview to disabled people who meet the minimum requirements for the post.
  • Welsh Government has adopted the social model definition of disability, which recognises that barriers in society act to disable people who have impairments or health conditions or who use British Sign Language. We are committed to removing barriers so that all (or potential new) staff can perform at their best. The Equality Act 2010 uses the medical model definition of disability (“a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term impact on a person’s ability to carry out normal day to day activities”).
  • We guarantee to interview anyone who is disabled, whose application meets the minimum criteria for the post. By ‘minimum criteria’ we mean that you must provide us with evidence in your application which demonstrates that you generally meet the level of competence for the role and any qualifications, skills or experience defined as essential.
  • If you have an impairment or health condition, or use British Sign Language and need to discuss reasonable adjustments for any part of this recruitment process, or wish to discuss how we will support you if you were to be successful, please contact the Corporate Shared Service Centre – sharedservicehelpdesk@gov.wales 
  • Welsh Government are committed to the employment and career development of disabled people.
