Website Accessibility

Accessibility statement for Careers at Department for Transport

This website is run by TMP (UK) Limited on behalf of the Department for Transport. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that 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 (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible this website is

We know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible:

  • When reading the transcript of a video you will be taken to a new page.
  • Automated testing reveals two form elements without labels inside the Cookie Preferences controls. Our tests have not shown that this is affecting usability for those with assistive devices.

Reporting accessibility problems with this website

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems that aren’t listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, contact: DRGComms@dft.gov.uk

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Department for Transport is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

WCAG 2.1, 2.4.6, Operable, Navigable, Headings and Labels

Automated testing reveals two form elements without labels inside the Cookie Preferences controls. Our tests have not shown that this is affecting usability for those with assistive devices. Further testing would be a disproportionate burden at this stage and remediation would also require retooling of a third party system.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

No items to add.
