Regrettably we will not be able to provide any feedback on applications or online interviews.
We are asking applicants to complete an Equality & Diversity Questionnaire. This is optional and will remain anonymous. The data collected will not form any part of scoring the applications. By returning the Questionnaire you are consenting to us using your data in accordance with our Data Protection Policy which you can find here.
If we can offer any reasonable adjustments to the application process, once the details have been announced in November 2023, please just let us know by email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 5 clear working days before the deadline for applications (which is yet to be announced).
All candidates who are invited to the online interviews will be asked in advance to confirm any reasonable adjustments which we could make.
Similarly, we will endeavour to accommodate any reasonable adjustments for the winner to fulfil all of the available opportunities.
Wherever possible the opportunities available will be offered remotely.
We understand not everybody will be able to attend in person or travel at this time. We are committed to working collaboratively and pro-actively with our Access Award winners to ensure they get as much out of the Award as is possible.
