Guidance for Disabled Applicants

Lincolnshire County Council welcomes applications from disabled people, and has been accredited as a Disability Confident employer in recognition of our commitment as an employer in ensuring that disabled people are supported and treated fairly at every stage of their selection, employment and career development. Further information about the Disability Confident scheme can be found on the government website.

We are committed to interviewing all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria of the role applied for. If you are applying for this position under the Disability Confident scheme please check the box on the application form and advise us of any reasonable adjustments which are needed to ensure the interview is accessible to you. For this purpose disability is defined as any physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long term adverse effect on your ability to carry out normal day to day activities.

Mindful Employer

Lincolnshire County Council is signed up to the Mindful Employer Charter, a charter for employers who are positive about mental health issues amongst their employees. As an organisation we are committed to providing informative, non - judgmental and pro - active support to existing and new staff that may experience mental health issues.

In any Lincolnshire County Council recruitment or occupational health check, people who have experienced mental health issues will not be discriminated against and that disclosure of a mental health problem will enable Lincolnshire County Council to assess and provide the right level of support.

As an employer we aim to:

  • Show a positive and enabling attitude to employees and job applicants with mental health issues. This will include positive statements in local recruitment literature.
  • Ensure that all staff involved in recruitment and selection are briefed on mental health issues and The Equality Act 2010, and given appropriate interview skills.
  • Make it clear in any recruitment or occupational health check that people who have experienced mental health issues will not be discriminated against and that disclosure of a mental health problem will enable both employee and employer to assess and provide the right level of support or adjustment.
  • Not make assumptions that a person with a mental health problem will be more vulnerable to workplace stress or take more time off than any other employee or job applicant.
  • Provide non-judgemental and proactive support to individual staff who experience mental health issues.
  • Ensure all line managers have information and training about managing mental health in the workplace.

We hope that you find our recruitment process open, clear and easy to understand and that you submit a completed application.
