This accessibility statement applies to Ealing Council’s corporate recruitment website

This website is run by Ealing Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use and access it. This means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader.

Making your device work for you

You can change your browser, computer, keyboard and mouse settings to make the website more accessible for you.

You can find helpful advice on customising your device in AbilityNet guide.

Changing the font size and colour

If you do have problems with the default colours and font sizes on the website you can change these settings by click on the accessibility widget (CTRL+U) on the center-right of the screen, where you can find the setting for Keyboard navigation, Screen reader, Contrast, Highlight links, Bigger text, Text spacing, Big cursor, Tooltips. so all web pages are displayed in a larger typeface and clearer colour scheme.


We’ve also made the website text in plain English, so it’s as simple as possible to understand.

PDFs and other documents

We have taken all possible measures to make all our PDFs and other documents meet accessibility standards.

Any documents or PDFs from October 2020 we publish should meet accessibility standards unless we determine that they represent a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations.
