My approach would be to disclose [your disability] (when you feel comfortable to do so). There are so many benefits that will improve your working experience, from workplace adjustments to openness with colleagues – you get more out of work (and your employee gets more from you), when you’re able to be yourself.

Barclays is committed to being a disability confident organisation. Our objective is to become the most accessible and inclusive bank for all colleagues, customers and clients.

Barclays aims to be an employer of choice for talent. We are committed to providing the support that you may need to be successful at Barclays – be it equipment, flexible working, line manager support and vibrant colleague disability network, Reach. We run Disability Listening Groups, hosted by senior executives across the business; at these forums colleagues with disabilities meet with senior leaders to discuss opportunities for change to help make the working environment inclusive and accessible.

These days there are a lot of common adjustments that don’t even need a medical assessment. It’s about removing barriers so that people can be productive in the workplace.

Fidelity is incredible. I honestly couldn’t fault them in their approach to disability.  I actually think the majority of my team don’t even know I am registered disabled as it doesn’t affect my work and therefore doesn’t affect them and this is due to the support I have had.

During my career with J.P. Morgan I have realized that it is only by being open that we step fully into who we are, and we inspire others to do the same. During the interview process the company will offer any assistance needed and will ask you far in advance what kind of support you would need to feel comfortable at every stage of the interview.

I was blown away by the firm’s response to me sharing my diagnoses. I was asked what accommodations could be made for me in the workplace, and HR and my line managers granted the suggestions made by my doctor through the Occupational Health team without hesitation. HR went further and sought a specialist provider to deliver training to my team so that my colleagues could understand how autism and ADHD is best supported in the workplace
