All disabled applicants who meet the criteria for a vacancy as part of the Olympic Games in 2012 will be given an interview, the organisers of the event have said.

The promise comes as part of a recruitment drive by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG).

Access Now, the name of the scheme, will include areas such as Sport Competition Management, Venue Management and Planning and Technology.

Paul Deighton, chief executive officer of LOCOG, said the team is working to deliver two world-class sporting events in the summer of 2012 that will provide "countless" involvement opportunities for everyone in Great Britain.

"Today marks a step change in our effort to establish LOCOG as an employer of choice for disabled people, something that is particularly crucial for us given we are staging a Paralympic Games together with an Olympic Games," he added.

Recently the government published a series of reports highlighting its progress towards achieving equality for disabled people by 2025.
