As part of our diversity and inclusion strategy, 300 North have partnered with accessibility forward company Recite Me in order to allow equitable access to our website.

Visitors to our website are now able to access a wide range of accessibility and language support tools to customise their digital experience through Recite Me’s assistive technology.

We have employed the new functionality to support over 20% of the population who may encounter barriers when exploring websites due to having a disability, learning difficulty, visual impairment or being a non-native English speaker.

The Recite Me assistive toolbar on the 300 North website includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customisable styling options an on-demand live translation feature that boasts over 100 languages including 35 texts to speech and styling options.

Michelle Connolly, Strategic Development Director at 300 North, commented, “We have implemented the Recite Me toolbar on our website to further our diversity and inclusion goals in 2022. Using Recite Me allows us to provide end-users the exact tools and adjustments required by 20% of the population to allow equality of access to the recruitment process online.”

She continues, “The technology is fast becoming an industry-standard in the recruitment sector as organisations look to increase cognitive diversity in their candidate pools and ensure all candidates have equality of access to research and apply for positions.”

The internet can be an incredibly intimidating place for those with access barriers, and those lacking the tools they need to adequately understand or communicate are at a significant disadvantage, particularly when working to further their career.

Ross Linnett Recite Me’s Founder and CEO commented, “It is important to provide an inclusive online experience, where everyone can use our digital world in a way in which best suits their needs. As more organisations provide accessibility tools online, those who face online barriers can access information and services hassle-free. The digital world must be accessible for all."
