We are fully committed to supporting candidates with disabilities who apply for jobs with organisations using our assessments. Most of our assessments can be adjusted to better suit individuals with disabilities, including but not limited to: visual impairment, hearing loss, mobility impairments, learning difficulties, mental health issues and disfigurements. We help recruiters by providing guidance and best practice on reasonable adjustments to assessments to make your experience as smooth and fair as possible.
Examples of possible assessment adjustments include the following:
• Support for screen reading software including Jaws for Windows and NVDA
• Giving candidates the choice to choose between different contrast options
• Allowing additional time to complete timed tests, for candidates who may require extra time to absorb information and to carry out necessary actions
• Adjustment to test presentation for candidates with dyslexia or a visual impairment
• Large print format tests on screen or on paper
• Braille printed tests on paper
• Supporting candidates with hearing loss by providing text scripts of voice sections on video or avatar-based tests
If you have a disability which you feel may affect the assessment that you have been asked to complete, it would be in your interest to make the recruiting organisation aware of this as early as possible in the application process, so that suitable adjustments can be made to provide you with a fair experience. All adjustments must be discussed with, and agreed by the recruiting organisation.
