Recite Me is a software company that aims for break down barriers online to make websites accessible to everyone. It was founded in the UK in 2009 and has since worked with many established companies, assisting them in facilitating all kinds of online processes. Menzies Aviation is the latest to partner Recite Me and has chosen to focus on making its recruitment processes more accessible. Recite Me’s website has this to say about Recruitment: “Everyone should have the opportunity to find their dream job. Discover hidden talent and recruit from a larger talent pool by providing assistive technology. Support your potential candidates who may be disabled, visually impaired or who speak English as a second language, with tools to use your website effectively.” Within such an internationally active company as Menzies Aviation, English as a second language is definitely a large topic. Hence, with Recite Me, existing and potential employees visiting Menzies’ Global Careers Hub now have access to an on-demand live translation feature capable of handling more than 100 languages, including 65 text-to-speech and styling options. They can also customize the page to suit their requirements, using a large variety of tools on the Recite Me assistive toolbar, which include a screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, and customizable styling options.

This assistive technology supports Menzies’ diversity strategy and opens up opportunities to a greater spectrum of the workforce, ultimately leading to greater diversity and inclusivity within the company.

Juliet Thomson, Chief People Officer, Menzies Aviation, explained: “Ensuring that everyone can access our Global Careers Hub in an inclusive way and that best suits their needs is vital to maximizing the strength and diversity of our workforce. We’re proud to have embraced Recite Me’s innovative assistive technology, which will improve accessibility for anybody wanting to build their career at Menzies.” Ross Linnett, Founder and CEO, Recite Me, said: “It is important to provide an inclusive online experience, where everyone can use our digital world in a way which best suits their needs. As more organizations provide accessibility tools online, those who face online barriers can access information and services hassle-free. The digital world must be accessible for all.”
