Technical information about this website’s accessibility

TMP (UK) Ltd. is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Disproportionate burden

WCAG 1.4.3: Contrast

Some large text is overlaid on photographic images. The text is is readable by assitive technology and is not embedded in the images. Care has been taken to choose background images that do not have detail that could interfere with the large text and that there is good contrast between the image and the text. We are aware that photographic content may render differently our users’ screens and cannot check for all scenarios.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

WCAG 3.2: Predictable

Some content is in an accordion and some of these accordion items are quite long. When at the bottom of a long accordion item and a new item is opened below it, the original item is collapsed. On smaller screens this can leave the scroll position of the page in a place the user is not expecting. Some users may be disoriented by this behaviour. There is no specific WCAG guideline that addresses this.
