If you are a disabled applicant and wish to take advantage of this scheme it may be necessary to discuss this with those who review applications. If you are a disabled person and you prefer not to disclose this fact, unfortunately this may mean that you cannot be guaranteed an interview even if you meet the minimum requirements for the position.
