No there's no HR department and no HR policies. No, they are not 2 ticks registered. Of course I want to be positive about it hence why I'm thinking about it in advance. I can say it won't cost them anything, but it is more the shock/attitude of some people/bosses that I have experienced in the past who can't get past seeing a poor disabled person, either 'ah bless - not up to much' or 'agh panic - we don't want them' attitude. First impressions count so much and there is a probation period. Once some people have a certain impression in their heads, it can be hard to shift. I speak from experience.
Far better like my current job (yes I'm both unemployed and employed - small part-time job for a charity and and in addition a linked voluntary job exercising) which already had a good, suitable office set up so I don't need anything more/Access to Work. They can get to know me for doing a great job (or two!) before I let them know, if and when it suits me, long after they have formed their opinion about me, about any misbehaving body parts that I might have.
Unfortunately the new place has awful, huge, heavy, soft, backward-sloping unsuitable antiquated chair and an unergonomic set up which is no good for me so needs to be changed (for what you normally get in an office).
Disability isn't part of the interview process unless there needs to be adaptations for the interview, which I don't need. Employers are not allowed to ask about disability or sick leave as part of the Equalities Act. The interview should focus on ability to do the job.
