Accessibility

 

As the leading recruiter for the Civil and Public Service, we promote and support the development and employment of people with disabilities and promote diversity and inclusion throughout the organisations and institutions of the Civil and Public Service. We strive to make our services, building, and website as accessible as possible and welcome people from diverse backgrounds to use our services. 

Charter on Positive Support

As part of our commitment to positively supporting candidates with disabilities, we have developed a set of principles that underpin how we engage with candidates with disabilities. For applicants who have declared to us that they have a disability, we will ensure that reasonable accommodations are in place as stated in our Charter on Positive Support. Our commitment is to make any reasonable accommodations for you in the recruitment process in order to give you the best opportunity to perform to your optimum in the application, test and interview process.

For more information about our reasonable adjustments, please see our Reasonable Accommodations Request Process.

Recite Me

We work with Recite Me to include a suite of accessibility tools to make Publicjobs.ie accessible for all visitors, which can be accessed on the top right-hand corner of the homepage. These tools allow you to have the text read aloud by a screen reader, increase the font size, change the colour of our website, zoom in to view the page, use the screen mask, use the dictionary, download audio files or change the language. There are a range of different languages that the website can be translated into including Polish, Romanian, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and many more. Once you click on the Accessibility Tools link, the Recite Me menu bar will pop up at the top of the screen and a simple user guide is available to answer any questions you may have on how to use the toolbar. At Publicjobs.ie we are committed to continuing to improve the accessibility of our website and we would be very grateful for any feedback or suggestions you wish to provide.
