Case study: Supporting job applications from disabled people: improving confidence and work experience for disabled people – Frimley Park Hospital

Background

In its employment equality compliance report for 2015/2016, the Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (the Trust) noted that it had received fewer job applications from disabled people than might be expected, given that eight percent of the population in its catchment area is estimated to have a disability.

Although disability is generally underreported among applicants in the job market, the Trust felt that a specific commitment was needed in order to encourage more disabled people to apply for jobs at the Trust. Mindful of the specific duties (under the Public Sector Equality Duty), the hospital defined the following objective to fulfil this aim:

Work with organizations such as the Shaw Trust to place disabled people with the aim of developing skills and confidence to support long-term employment prospects. This includes provision of support for applying for permanent posts within the organization.

Action

In 2015/2016, the hospital contacted the Shaw Trust to ask for curriculum vitae of disabled people who were looking for work placements. The Shaw Trust put forward three curriculum vitae and the hospital identified placements that would best suit the skills of these individuals. Assistance with job applications/interviews was given at the end of the placements so that the three individuals could apply for temporary and permanent positions within the Trust.

Outcomes

In 2015/16, the Trust reported the following progress: out of the three disabled people appointed through Shaw Trust on work placements, two have now been appointed as temporary staff, and one to a permanent post.

The work placements at the hospital made a significant difference to the lives of those involved. In particular, it has enabled participants to gain skills and confidence to apply for jobs afterwards. One participant stated that it has enabled him to demonstrate his skills in a real workplace which gave him the confidence to apply for a permanent post in the Trust. ‘At the interview, I could talk about real work skills I had developed in my placement, something I had previously been unable to do’.

The hospital is still working with the Shaw Trust to continue providing more disabled people with potential job opportunities in the coming years.
