Because everyone should have the opportunity to find their dream job…
We are excited to announce that we are kick-starting our accessibility journey by adding Recite Me’s web accessibility software to our website to ensure our online recruitment process is accessible to everyone.
As a global technical recruiter, we operate in sectors hardest hit by imbalances and we are dedicated to improving diversity within the industries we work. By educating our clients and providing an inclusive candidate journey, we are committed to improving the lives of our contractor base and our own employees.
We work hard to attract talent from untapped pools, and by introducing ReciteMe to our website, we are ensuring that there are no barriers in place to hold talented people back.
Recite Me is an innovative cloud-based web accessibility tool that lets you customise how your website looks offering a suite of accessibility tools, including solutions for visitors with dyslexia, visual impairment and learning difficulties.
“This software will enable 27% more of the UK population to access our online content than could previously.”
When you click on the ‘Accessibility Tools’ button at the top of our website, the Recite Me toolbar opens with a range of language and accessibility options and settings.
You can use the Recite Me toolbar’s unique range of functions to do things like:
Change font sizes and colours
Options to have text read aloud (including PDFs)
Customise background colour
Access a fully integrated dictionary and thesaurus
Translate web content into more than 100 different languages

Morson Equals Opportunities
Morson is committed to providing a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process and because of that we have developed the ‘Morson Equals Opportunities’ campaign to power this initiative. This campaign is set to be one of our most important projects to date and is close to the heart of many of our colleagues.
Adding Recite Me’s web accessibility software to our website is the cornerstone of the campaign, revolutionising the way we engage with clients, contractors and candidates online.
This campaign utilises the latest technology to enhance the candidate journey. Our new Group website was the first step to this exciting project which ensures our website is as easy to use as possible through quick apply tools, saved preferences and tailored job alerts.
We propelled ‘Morson Equals Opportunities’ further into the spotlight through an event we held with Liverpool’s most famous boxing family. Champion boxer Callum Smith and his brothers have worn the word ‘autism’ on their shorts throughout their careers in a bid to raise awareness of the condition that their sister lives with. Our public Q&A with the brothers raised £1000 for their sister’s specialist autism school and our coverage ensured that the message reached over 100k people on social media, raising awareness further.
Great journeys are often made up of many small steps, and we aim to by the end of 2019 to continue our work and be a leader for accessible recruitment that is changing lives for people with disabilities.
