We’re a Disability Confident Leader

St Oswald’s Hospice is committed to equity and diversity and is an inclusive employer. We welcome applications from people of all ages, disability/non-disability, ethnicities, genders, religions, sexualities, transgender status, and cultural backgrounds.

We are a Disability Confident Leader and will offer interviews to candidates who request to be considered under the disability confident scheme and meet the minimum requirements of the person specification.

Please note in situations where we experience high-volume, seasonal and high-peak times, we will endeavour to meet this commitment but may have to limit the overall number of interviews offered to both disabled people and non-disabled people.
