Access services

The BBC has a comprehensive Access Service that provides assistance to disabled candidates and employees seeking reasonable adjustments. The Access Service will support candidates who need reasonable adjustments to ensure these are made as required at every stage of the recruitment and selection process. Once a job offer has been made, the Access Service will undertake a workplace assessment to identify appropriate adjustments and will work with employees to implement those adjustments.

Typical adjustments in the BBC have included communication support for deaf or hard of hearing employees, a note taker, assistive technology, workplace equipment and assistance travelling to, from and within work.
