Text size control

The text size of the web pages and job application form can be changing using your brower's built-in controls. If you don't know how to do this then it's worth spending a little time learning how. The browser controls work on all sites that meet accessibility guidelines. What's more, they work in a consistent way - no more searching for controls that are different on every site!

The W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative have a page that explains how to change text size on various common browsers.

As a quick tip, the most common method of increasing text size on a desktop/laptop computer browser is to press + (the plus symbol), sometimes with Control or Command depending on the browser and the computer. To decrease text size, press - (the minus symbol), sometimes with Control or Command. On a tablet PC or smart phone, the pinch gesture is commonly used to zoom in and out.

Accessibility for job applicants

It is the policy of the employers that the recruitment process be accessible to all eligible candidates. None should be barred from applying owing to their accessibility needs.

Disability Confident

Most employers make a commitment to the 'Disability Confident' employer scheme Disability confident campaign.

Interviews

Employers hold interviews in various venues. Many - but not all - are accessible to everyone. If your application reaches interview stage then you may receive an email message asking you to book an interview through your account area. When booking your interview, there is a box where you can explain what your accessibility requirements are. The employer will see your message and make appropriate arrangements.

Web Accessibility statement

We want everyone who visits the HealthJobsUK family of job boards to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines

We use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines help make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility: A, AA and AAA. We've chosen the highest level, AAA, as the target.

How are we doing?

We've assessed the HealthJobsUK family of job boards, including the account area for logged-in candidates, and determined they conform to level AAA. There's a small number of caveats/exceptions where the guidelines are not applicable, specifically:
