Menzies has introduced a series of accessibility tools to its careers and corporate website, making it easier for existing and prospective employees to access the latest career opportunities barrier-free.

Visitors to the Global Careers Hub can now access a wide range of tools to customise their digital experience using the Recite Me assistive toolbar.

This includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customisable styling options and an on-demand live translation feature that boasts over 100 languages, including 65 text-to-speech and styling options.

Offering a more accessible recruitment experience is firmly in line with Menzies’ diversity strategy, which aims to bring about a more balanced workforce and inclusive culture, the company said.

All of the functionality of Recite Me’s assistive technology is also available on the Menzies website.

Juliet Thomson, chief people officer of Menzies, said: “Ensuring that everyone can access our Global Careers Hub in an inclusive way and that best suits their needs is vital to maximising the strength and diversity of our workforce.

“We’re proud to have embraced Recite Me’s innovative assistive technology, which will improve accessibility for anybody wanting to build their career at Menzies.”

Ross Linnett, founder and CEO of Recite Me, added: “It is important to provide an inclusive online experience, where everyone can use our digital world in a way which best suits their needs.

“As more organisations provide accessibility tools online, those who face online barriers can access information and services hassle-free. The digital world must be accessible for all.”
