Assistive Technology Guidance Developers – Summer job opportunity

What is this?

We are looking for two people to help us improve the guidance on how to use Oxford University systems for people who rely on assistive technologies such as screen readers, magnifiers or dictation software.

This is a flexible role that can be done entirely online.

Who are you?

If you are an expert user of assistive technologies and have experience using the Oxford University systems with them, this may be perfect for you.

Ideally, you will have some experience helping others use these technologies and awareness of the accessibility standards.

What will you be doing?

As part of this work, you will be:

  • Reviewing some of the key digital systems and tools students use, and testing how they work with assistive technologies
  • Revising existing guidance to make sure assistive technology is taken into account
  • Developing new guidance on tools from the perspective of assistive technology
  • Reviewing feedback from users of the guidance
  • Giving feedback on new tools being developed at the University
  • Meeting with relevant people such the Assistive Technology Officer.

You can see more details in the full Job Specification.

What will you be paid?

The salary will be paid at a rate of £15 per hour upon submitting a time sheet. The total amount of time is negotiable, but should not exceed 220 hours in total. You must also not exceed 36.5 hours a week in total if you already have another role at the University.
