We welcome people from all identities who are made to feel marginalised. Whilst these applications are encouraged, there are some roles at The Advocacy Academy which present some limits that may mean it is not suitable for some applicants. We have flagged any such limitation in each distinct job specification.

Let us know if we can do anything to make the application or interview process more accessible. If you are invited to interview, we will at that point ask you for any accessibility requirements or preferences.

We will support any application to the Government’s Access to Work scheme which could provide you with financial support to get the help you need to do all tasks successfully.
