We’re committed to achieving full AA conformance by the end of 2023. To do this, we’re undertaking the following steps:
Ad Hoc believes that hiring skilled professionals with disabilities empowers our team to make access to government more equitable and inclusive to the communities we serve. As such, we strongly encourage people with disabilities to apply to our open positions.
Our recruitment team routinely provides applicants with assistive technology, captioned video interviews, and many other tools/techniques to ensure equal access to an informative, engaging, and positive interview experience.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how we can best support your interviewing experience. Our trained staff looks forward to hearing from you.
