Accessibility

Essex Police seeks to be an employer that understands the needs and aspirations of people with disabilities and will ensure that there is no discrimination on the grounds of disability to either job applicants, members of the organisation or the members of public whom we serve.

Essex Police is committed to equality of opportunity for all and aims to provide access to the full range of recruitment and development opportunities for people with disabilities on the basis of merit and ability.

Where appropriate, equipment, aids and adaptations to the workplace will be made available, together with, where possible, a flexible approach to working arrangements to enable people with disabilities to work with the maximum convenience and efficiency. Furthermore, Essex Police seeks to ensure the retention of staff who become affected by disability through rehabilitation, training and reassignment.

Essex Police is committed to making itself accessible to all elements of the community and will endeavour to provide appropriate facilities and assistance for people with disabilities in order that they receive our highest standards of service.

Two ticks

The two ticks disability symbol is a recognition given by the Employment Service to employers who have agreed to take action to meet five commitments regarding the employment, retention, training and career development of disabled employees.

The five commitments made by employers including Essex Police are:

  1. To interview all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities.
  2. To ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss, at any time, but at least once a year, with disabled employees what you and they can do to make sure they can develop and use their abilities.

  3. To make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment.

  4. To take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make your commitments work each year.

  5. To review the five commitments and what has been achieved, to plan ways to improve on them and let employees and the Employment Service know about progress and future plans.
