It’s easy to use. Just a few questions about you will ensure we can make changes to how we contact you, how you are assessed or any other reasonable adjustments which we can make.
Answer a few simple questions about your circumstances
Q: Who will be using this information
A: The information will be used by ClearTalents™ where an expert team has been assembled to help CGI put in place anything that needs to be done for you to perform at your best. The information is shared on a “need to know” basis with only those people responsible for making changes or supporting you along the way.
Q: Will answering these questions be used against me?
A: ClearTalents™ is a significant commitment in terms of time and resources by CGI and we are really keen to remove barriers for you and we cannot do that without your input.
Q: Do I get any information back at the end of the process?
A: Absolutely – you get a report, which summarises what you have told us and provides you with useful resources and contacts you can follow up that could help you even more. People have found new sources of information and learnt handy tips that help them and increase their confidence.
Q: I am not disabled, is this relevant for me?
A: This questionnaire isn’t only meant for people with a disability, but the only way you are going to find out whether it’s for you is by completing the questionnaire. ClearTalents™ is not only there to overcome barriers that a disabled person may face in recruitment and employment but also to overcome barriers that having caring responsibilities, being of a particular race or culture or being transgender, for example, may present.
Q: How long will it take me to complete the questionnaire?
A: Only a few minutes. For many people it takes less than five minutes. If you have a lot to tell ClearTalents™ or want to have a look around the resources it may take you a little longer.
Q: I cannot use a computer – is it possible to get a copy in a different format?
A: Absolutely, ClearTalents™ can provide an alternative format or arrange for you to answer questions over the phone if you like.
Q: Do I have to fill it in all at once even if I am just sending in an application?
A: No you can fill it in in stages if you like but we would really encourage you to fill in as much as you can as soon as you can. The earlier we know about things we can do to support you the easier it is to effectively put them in place.
