Accessibility

 

Tesco is committed to celebrating diversity and everyone is welcome at Tesco. As a Disability Confident Employer, we’re committed to providing a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process, allowing candidates the opportunity to thrive and inform us of any reasonable adjustments they may require.

 

ReciteMe:

Our career’s website has a support toolbar to make it easier for you to access information on our website. Here are some examples of the different tools ReciteMe has to assist you.

Screen Reader

ReciteMe’s screen reader can help you understand what’s written on our website by reading the text aloud. This can be customised to be read in a way that suits you best.

Styling & Customisation

ReciteMe also allows you to customise our website’s colour scheme as well as the text, font style, size, colour and spacing.

Reading Aids

Reading content online can be a challenge. To simplify and support your visit to our careers website the ReciteMe toolbar has tools such as a dictionary and magnifier.
