Working at our London office

In 2018 we moved our headquarters to a new office at Here East, on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, sharing a building with waterside restaurants on the River Lee. 
The office is designed to support new technology, new flexible ways of working and new working practices.

In our London office you might work in marketing or fundraising, supporting disabled people on our Helpline, or keeping the business running in accounts or HR.

Employing Disabled People

17% of employees who responded to our 2017 staff survey told us they were disabled. We don't have a target, but we do want to recruit more disabled people to all teams and at all levels, as well as people with lived experience of disability through family and friends.

We want Scope to be a great place to work if you are disabled. In consultation with our disabled employees we are:

  • Changing the way we advertise so more disabled people see and apply for jobs.
  • Making it easier for disabled employees to get changes made to our office and their workspace (reasonable adjustments).
  • Letting people work from home or work flexible hours whenever we can.
  • Helping disabled people develop their skills and flourish at Scope.
  • Guaranteeing interviews for all disabled applicants meeting the minimum criteria for a role.
  • Running disability equality training for all our employees.

Scope uses the social model of disability, which recognises that physical and social barriers disable people with impairments, not the impairments themselves.
