Positive about disabled people

Positive about disabled peopleWorking for Essex aims to employ people from all sections of the community. Our partners belong to the national Two Ticks (positive about disabled people) scheme; this is because disabled people can find it more difficult to get work than non-disabled people. If you are disabled and meet the key job requirements, we will interview you. When you fill in the application form, you can say whether you want to apply on this basis.
