LSE Careers works to uphold the School's principles of equity and diversity and aims to ensure that individuals can have equal access to studying and employment opportunities regardless of age, disability, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, marriage and civil partnership, religion and belief, sex, sexual orientation or personal circumstances.

Working with various departments at LSE, we aim to provide a range of services to students:

  • Dedicated Careers Consultant specialising in disability and employment with a focus on the transition from education to employment
  • Close collaboration with the Disability and Well-being Service involves regular cross-referral between disability and LSE Careers
  • Email advice and guidance regularly given to disabled students
  • Advice given on recruitment process, disclosure, reasonable adjustments and other disability issues
  • Close links with disability organisations ensures all opportunities for disabled students (internships, networking opportunities and similar) are sent direct to LSE Careers and advertised accordingly
  • Partnerships with diversity recruiters allows referral of students to relevant employers to discuss individual needs
