Recite Me creates six new jobs to meet growing demand for accessibility software

Gateshead-based web accessibility and language software companyRecite Meis creating six strategic new jobs to help meet the growing demand for online accessibility and digital inclusion.

New UK and European government legislationcovering web accessibility in the public and private sectors, and policies such as the UK's government'sInclusive Transport Strategylaunched in July 2018, have seen demand for inclusive software rise greatly.

And more private sector businesses are also realising their digital communications need to reach the widest possible audience to retain existing customers and win new ones amongst the UK's increasingly diverse and ageing population.

As a result of the sustained growth of digital inclusion, Recite Me has grown from a start-up and entered a high-growth phase, almost doubling its number of customers in the last few years.

Recite Me currently sells its software in three continents and has offices in Europe and the US. The company is now recruiting for six new strategic roles to help the company continue to grow successfully.

The company, which is a member of the government'sDisability Confident employerscheme and theInclusive Employers network, is now recruiting for a Head of Marketing, two Senior Sales Executives, plus two Sales Lead Generators and a Country Manager in the US.

Recite Me provides cloud-based web accessibility and language software that can work on any website to let people customise the way the website looks and works to suit their needs.

It helps the one in five people in the UK who have a disability, plus the ten percent of people who don't speak English as their first language, to do what they need to do on a website.

The company supplies its software to customers from a wide range of sectors including Great Western Railway (GWR), St Johnstone FC, Gatwick Airport, Dunelm, South East Water, Anglian Building Products and Yorkshire Ambulance Service.

Ross Linnett, Recite Me Founder and CEO, said:

"Inclusion is central to who we are at Recite Me and the software we build.

"We know that having people from all walks of life makes us a more creative and innovative company. 

"This means we are committed to making our recruitment process as inclusive as possible, including offering sufficient accessibility or reasonable adjustments for the application or interview stage.

"I have dyslexia myself. I created web accessibility and language software Recite Me after my experience of finding it difficult to access any website, anywhere and anytime I needed whilst studying at university.

"So we really are looking forward to hearing from people from the widest possible pool of talent to fill these roles as the company continues to grow successfully."
