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