Over the past number of years, the Careers Advisory Service and the Disability Service within Trinity have engaged with hundreds of students with disabilities in the transition from college to the workplace. We can provide advice in areas such as disclosure of a disability, reasonable accommodation in the workplace, assistive technology, equality legislation and managing your work role.
We hope that the resources outlined below are useful but please feel free to raise any disability related issues with us that you want to discuss, either by approaching a Careers Consultant at an event, when you are booking an appointment with a Careers Consultant, or within a meeting.
Students registered with the Disability Service can also email their contact within the service, or the careers lead within the Disability Service, Kieran Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
