Interactive services

We may from time to time provide interactive services (“interactive services”) on our site, including, without limitation:

  • Chat rooms.
  • Bulletin boards.
  • Blogs.

Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).

We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site. We will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.

Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.

Accessibility statement

We are committed to making this site useful and accessible to all users and we’re continually working to improve it.

We aim to achieve high standards of accessibility and where possible to conform to level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. The purpose of these guidelines is to explain how website owners can make web content more accessible for people with disabilities.

Our site is built with standards compliant HTML and CSS and is progressively enhanced using JavaScript. It is designed to work on smart phones, tablets, desktops, and any other device that includes a web browser. This leads to a better experience for job seekers who often carry out tasks across a number of different devices. We aim to provide a consistent user experience where all information and navigation is easy to find and learn.

We're continually working towards bringing all areas of the site up to the same level of web accessibility. Should you experience any difficulty, or if you would like to tell us how we could do things better, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Accessibility help

  • Skip-to links - The site includes “skip-to” links at the top of each page. These links enable you to drop down to the main page content, skipping repetitive navigation and therefore getting to where you want to be quicker.
  • Zooming - Modern browsers include a page magnification or zoom tool. Because the site is flexibly designed, zooming does not break the page layout. Instead, content is reflowed to best suit the current zoom level.
  • Colour - Background and foreground colours have been chosen to provide enough contrast to maximise visibility for all users on all devices. These colours are controlled within the CSS, which can be overridden by altering your browser settings.
  • Tabbed interaction - Some areas of the site use tabbed containers to allow you to select the information you want to read and stop the page from looking overcrowded. All content that is visually hidden (for example inactive tab content) can be found and read by screen readers.
  • JavaScript - We treat JavaScript as an enhancement and not a requirement. The site will still be useable if JavaScript is disabled, not loaded or broken.
  • Readability - We have used plain, simple language and have tried not to use jargon where possible. Our aim being to ensure that our site is both accessible and understandable to as many people as possible.
