Working for Rother District Council


Working for Rother District Council

Putting our residents first is at the heart of everything we do in Rother. It's the reason that we come to work every day.

Along with the strong political leadership at the Council, everyone is encouraged to share ideas and put forward their suggestions for improving our services. So no matter where you work in the organisation, you can make a difference. By listening to the needs of our residents, looking for ways to solve problems and working together, we all play a part in ensuring we deliver the best services possible for our residents.

Disability Confident

The Disability Confident symbol represents the policy set up by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). It is an identity accredited to employers by the DWP. It shows that Rother has a positive approach to employing disabled people. In order to display this symbol, Rother District Council had to assess the work the Council does for current staff and when recruiting new staff to ensure it meets the core themes of the policy. The Council also had to demonstrate how it participates in activities recommended by the Government to recruit fairly; give opportunities for everyone to experience work; work with other organisations who support disabled people looking for work as well as train and support existing staff.

You will see the symbol displayed on Rother District Council's job adverts and application form.

Rother District Council is positive about employing disabled people and we are keen to know about your abilities. As users of the disability confident scheme, we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the vacancy; we will ensure their individual needs are factored into the interview environment, making adjustments to ensure the interview experience is as accommodating as possible for every candidate.
