Peace Direct is committed to recruiting and retaining disabled people to help address the disability employment gap. We are committed to employing, retaining, and developing disabled people. We offer all disabled candidates an interview where they have the skills and experience we’re looking for and will make adjustments in the recruitment process for you if needed. If we offer you a job, we will discuss with you any adjustments you need to help you perform at your best in your new role.

When applying for a job with us, if you have a disability covered by the definition outlined within the Equality Act 2010 and can show that you meet the ‘essential criteria’ described in the person specification for the role being applied for, you will be guaranteed an interview for the job for which you are applying, through our Disability Confident scheme (formerly known as the Guaranteed Interview Scheme). The Disability Confident scheme only guarantees an interview – it does not automatically mean that applicants interviewed will gain employment with us at that time. Feedback on the results of your interview will be given to you in a way which you agree best meets your personal needs.
