Why has CARE International UK decided to sign up to the scheme?

Gender equality and diversity is at the heart of the work CARE International UK does. We are therefore very proud to demonstrate our commitment to fair employment through being a Disability Confident Committed Employer. By being part of the scheme, CARE International UK is leading the way in our community and discovering more skills and talents, while support people to fulfil their potential and contribute to their success.

We are committed to ensuring disabled people are treated fairly and have access to the same opportunities as non-disabled people. By using the Disability Confident logo, we make it clear that we welcome disabled applicants for all roles in the organisation. It also shows existing employees that their contribution is valued and they will be treated fairly if they become disabled.

What does it mean if I see the Disability Confident logo on a job advert?

This means that CARE International UK will guarantee to interview all disabled applicants via the Guaranteed Interview Scheme, provided they meet the essential criteria for that job.

What is the Guaranteed Interview Scheme?

As part of CARE International UK's commitment to being a Disability Confident employer, all disabled applicants who meet the essential criteria for a job vacancy will be interviewed. To be considdred under the Guaranteed Interview Scheme, applicants will need to declare that they have a disability when prompted on the online application form.
