Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 14 March 2019

To ask the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body how it plans to recruit more disabled people.

Answered by: Kezia Dugdale 21 March 2019

The SPCB is committed to building a diverse and talented workforce that reflects the people of Scotland and we firmly believe in using positive action in the recruitment of disabled people.  

We have taken steps to ensure our recruitment processes are fair and inclusive of disabled people. For any disabled person who wants to work at the Parliament, the experience must be positive and rewarding, and the positive experience must continue throughout their career. In order to support this we look to remove barriers in the workplace and enable our staff to fulfil their potential, utilising their skills and talent.
