Disability Confident Scheme
We are committed to the employment and career development of disabled people. We offer disabled applicants the option of requesting that their application is considered under the Disability Confident Scheme, ensuring a guaranteed interview if their application meets the minimum criteria for the role. If you wish to apply under the Disability Confident Scheme, please state this in the relevant section of the application form. A paper form can be provided if preferred. Whether you are applying under the Scheme or not, if you are disabled, we would ask you to declare this to us, with the aim to help us better understand any reasonable adjustments requested during the recruitment process.
We are a Disability Confident Employer and are committed to making reasonable adjustments to our employees throughout their employee journey, and to candidates throughout the recruitment process. We recognise that ‘We are all uniquely different, something we can celebrate together” and aim to create a supportive environment, making reasonable adjustments to suit the specific needs of the individual.

The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their employees earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. SMS Plc is delighted to be an accredited Living Wage Employer.
