NC'd for this. I'm applying for a job in the public sector. I have tinnitus and some hearing problems, which mean if I'm in a noisy space, I can't hear properly, and if I'm in a noisy environment for a long time my ears ring afterwards, which is very unpleasant.
In my previous job I had a quiet office, so it wasn't a problem. I'm not sure if I should declare this on the application form - I'm not registered disabled, and I'm not sure how to interpret the guidance given in the Equality Act in this case. I'd be guaranteed an interview for the post if I noted a disability on the application form, but I don't see myself as having a disability IYSWIM - just an annoying problem with my blimmin' ears! Not sure what to put, so I'd appreciate some advice. TIA.
Thanks lougle. It is indeed both of those things, but I feel like a bit of a fraud to be honest - but I don't want to not declare it and (big if, if I get the job) have to ask for adjustments afterwards.
