Accessibility Testing for Adzuna & the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP)

The Challenge

As part of the building and delivery of the Government’s new job search platform - Find a Job - Adzuna needed to ensure that it was compliant with Government Service Standards and the Public Sector Accessibility Regulations. Before going live it also needed to pass a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) review to ensure it was easy to use, intuitive and enjoyable for users regardless of their access needs.

To ensure the site would pass the DWP review and offer a positive user experience for all users, Adzuna needed a test partner that could provide best-in-class accessibility consultation and testing services during site development. The solution needed to meet level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as a minimum and work with the most commonly used assistive technologies – including screen magnifiers, screen readers and speech recognition tools.

The Results

At the end of the project, Find a Job was considered WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliant and launched successfully having passed DWP assurance reviews and user testing.

Since its launch, the platform has won the award for Best Public Sector Project at the National Technology Awards. It has also been shortlisted for the Digital Public Service Innovation of the Year by Digital Leaders 100, Best Public Sector Digital Project at the Digital Technology Leaders Awards 2019 and Best Use of a Digital Solution at the Paperless Awards.
