The Trust is an equal opportunities employer and we welcome applications from all sections of the community, irrespective of age, race, colour, religion, belief, disability, nationality, ethnic origin, sexual orientation or marital status, carer status, social and employment status, HIV status, gender reassignment, political affiliation or trade union membership. All candidates will be treated in a fair and equitable manner. We support the ‘Disabilty Confident’ scheme which means that we guarantee to invite to assessment all applicants with a disability who meet the essential criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities.
If you have a disability you may need reasonable adjustments to be made to enable you to take part in our selection processes, for example, you might need assistance to complete the application form or a copy in large or different format, or adjustments to our literacy and numeracy assessments if you have dyslexia. If this is the case contact the recruiting manager (listed in the NHS Jobs advertisement), or the HR Support Services team on telephone number (01246) 513177, or e mail CRHFT.HumanResources@nhs.net. If you discuss this with us, we can take all reasonable steps to ensure that the necessary equipment and advice is available to allow you to participate fully in the selection process.
Please note that reasonable adjustments for successful applicants with a disability will be fully considered on appointment.

- offering an interview to disabled people
- anticipating and providing reasonable adjustments as required
