MyPlus Students' Club event
One of the most difficult decisions to make is whether or not you are going to inform a potential employer about your disability or health condition.
Not surprisingly you fear that you will be discriminated against, judgements will be made about your ability and that is before we even begin to talk about concerns over how the information provided will be used and who it will be shared with.
However, if you are not open about your disability not only can’t you draw on some of your experiences to demonstrate your skills and strengths; more importantly, you won’t be able to ask for the support/ adjustments that you may need during the recruitment process. And without this support you will not be able to demonstrate your suitability for the role.
During this webinar Helen Cooke, leading expert in disability and student recruitment and Founder of MyPlus Students’ Club, will help you to understand the benefits of being open, the consequences of not, and provide some hints and tips on how to write your ‘openness statement’

Recruitment processes are designed to be challenging and competitive however, for those with a disability, they can be impossible if appropriate support and adjustments are not put in place. Employers recognise that barriers may exist for those who have a disability or health condition and that is why they are more than happy to make adjustments to the process.
The aim of which is to ‘level the playing field’; to ensure that no-one is either at an advantage or a disadvantage and ensure that everyone has the same opportunity to demonstrate their potential. Not surprisingly, however, asking for this support seems daunting; but if you don’t request it, you may well be rejected for roles that you are more than capable of doing.
During this webinar Helen Cooke, leading expert in disability and student recruitment and Founder of MyPlus Students’ Club, will shed light on the support that employers can make, how the adjustment process works and advise applicants on the best way to request what they require.
