At Suffolk County Council we are working hard to build a more open environment where disabled people are included and valued. As a Disability Confident employer, we recognise the valuable role disabled people play in our success.
Being a Disability Confident employer means that as an employer, we meet set criteria under the scheme and that we encourage applicants with a disability to apply for roles within the organisation.
One of our commitments is to interview all applicants who declare a disability/long term illness that meet the minimum essential criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities.
We are also committed to supporting disabled people who are interested in a career at Suffolk County Council by offering work experience placements. If you are interested in a work experience placement, please complete the Work Experience Request Form (Word, 56KB).
