It means that if you have a disability Royal Blind will guarantee to interview you if you meet all the essential criteria for that job, as defined in the person specification. You must ensure that you state on the equal opportunities monitoring form that you have a disability and wish to claim an interview under this scheme.
The fact that Royal Blind has made these commitments means you will have the opportunity to say if you feel that more can be done to develop your career or use your abilities more suitably.
The guaranteed interview promise also applies to internal vacancies, provided you meet the minimum criteria for the job.
If you become disabled, or your level of disability changes, and there are aspects of your present employment that make it difficult for you to carry on the same work, Royal Blind will do all it can to make sure you can stay in your job.
