Adjustments at Sue Ryder

At Sue Ryder, equality and diversity are at the core of our values and we want to do everything possible to help you perform at your best when you interview and in your new role if you're successful. We recognise that some people will need adjustments to make the process inclusive and fair, and we’re very happy to facilitate that.

Examples of adjustments

This is not an exhaustive list, but examples of adjustments that we could provide for you include:

  • Accessibility support or adjustments to make you more physically comfortable or able during the interview
  • Communication support or adjustments. This could include receiving documents in an alternative format, putting subtitles on our video calls
  • Providing themes of the questions before the interview or providing written questions during the interview
  • Allocating additional time to complete assessments, give presentations and/or consider questions during an interview.
  • Additional information about the interview location and accessibility considerations

Helping you to perform at your best

You do not have to have a registered disability or condition to ask for an adjustment, and if you do have a disability or condition, you don’t have to share that with us. If there is something in your life that creates a barrier in applying or attending a job interview, for example, caring responsibilities or religious commitments, we are able to work with you flexibly to find a solution that works.

We will try our best to make you feel comfortable during our interviews, but we know that interviews can be intimidating for anyone. Please feel free to do what you need to make yourself more comfortable in the interview. This could include bringing notes with you or taking notes throughout interviews at Sue Ryder.

If you are successful in the process, we’ll then work with you to assess your needs and make adjustments that’ll ensure that your success continues in your new role with us.

If you join us at Sue Ryder we want to provide you with the adjustments you need in order to be happy and successful at work. We’ve recently launched our Inclusion Passport which allows you to explore your needs, communicate them with your manager and agree adjustments that are right for you.

Get in touch

If you require any adjustments please contact our Recruitment team at with the job reference number in the subject of your email.

We will then get in touch for a confidential discussion with you about how we can adapt our interview processes to best support your needs. Asking for a reasonable adjustment will not impact our decision making process.
