Accessibility Statement for the Civil Service Commission

This website is run by the Civil Service Commission. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. This means we have tested our websites ability 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.
