The disability symbols

When you start looking for work, look for the ‘disability confident’ and ‘positive about disabled people’ symbol with two ticks.

Disability confident
Positive about disabled people

The symbols are awarded by Jobcentre Plus to employers who are happy to employ disabled people and who have made commitments to employ, retain and develop the abilities of disabled staff.

If you have a disability and you are looking for a job, look on job adverts, in windows and on application forms.

If a job advert displays either symbol, you’ll be guaranteed an interview if you meet the basic conditions for the job and the employer will then consider you fairly on your abilities.
