Two ticks for East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service

East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service has retained its Two Ticks accreditation.

The symbol - awarded by Jobcentre Plus -  means an employer is committed to employing disabled people.

East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service was given the accreditation by demonstrating 5 commitments:
  • to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities
  • to discuss with disabled employees, at any time but at least once a year, what you can both do to make sure they can develop and use their abilities
  • to make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
  • to take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work
  • to review these commitments every year and assess what has been achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans
