Section 5: Reasonable adjustments for candidates with disability

If the candidate has a protected attribute under relevant equal opportunity legislation, you must adjust your process for them.

Explain each step of the recruitment process and make it clear you’ll offer reasonable adjustments to each candidate if they need them.

The best way to do this is to ask the candidate what they need to perform at their best throughout the selection process.

Understand a candidate with disability may find some assessment methods harder than others. For example, someone with neurodiversity opting out of online interviews.

Work with your candidates to make the process equitable and inclusive.
