Volkswagen Financial Services Provide an Inclusive Career Search Online

Volkswagen Financial Services Careers have launched accessibility and language support on their website to enable all web visitors’ access to Volkswagen Finance job opportunities easily and barrier- free.

Volkswagen Group UK is the country’s largest importer of vehicles, employing over 1,800 people nationwide. As an inclusive employer, VW wants to attract a wide range of talent, create a diverse and inclusive workplace, and provide equality.

14.1 million people in the UK have some form of disability and they can often encounter obstacles when applying for jobs online. By providing Recite Me’s suite of accessibility and language options those who once experienced friction can now access job details with ease, creating an inclusive candidate journey.

Mike Todd, CEO at Volkswagen Financial Services, added:

“More than ever, it is vital that everyone can have equality in the workplace and has access to the information they need to make informed career choices and create opportunities for themselves.

It’s a customised experience that we hope will increase the diversity of our applicants to enhance our skill sets and open up a wider talent pool that supports our values of equal opportunity in the workplace.”

The Recite Me assistive toolbar on the Volkswagen Careers Website supports people with disabilities, learning difficulties, visual impairments and people who speak English as a second language.

A recent report has concluded that visitors have on average viewed 7.15 pages which compares favourably with an internet average of 2.8 pages per visit. The work so far has found that nearly 500 pages on the Volkswagen Financial Services website have been reviewed using the Recite Me toolbar.

Website visitors are able to customize their experience through a range of features such as text to speech functionality, fully customisable styling features, reading aids and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 35 text to speech voices and many other features.

The Volkswagen Financial Services Careers website is now a place where everyone can find their dream career barrier-free.
