Why has Rubitek decided to sign up to the commitment?
Gender Equality and Diversity (GED) is at the heart of the work Rubitek does. The organisation is therefore very proud to demonstrate its commitment to fair employment through being a Disability Confident Committed Employer. By being part of the scheme, Rubitek is leading the way in its community and discovering more skills and talents; whilst supporting people to fulfil their potential and contribute to their success.
Rubitek is committed to ensure disabled people are treated fairly and have access to the same opportunities as non-disabled people. By using the Disability Confident logo, Rubitek makes it clear that it welcomes 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?
It means Rubitek 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 Rubitek’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 considered under the Guaranteed Interview Scheme, applicants will need to declare that they have a disability when prompted on the online application form.
