Accessibility Statement is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities.
Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Whilst strive to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring most areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.


This website is run by Jacobs. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 200%

  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard

  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software

  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader

We have made every effort to ensure this web site is easily readable using 'plain English'.
