VACANCY ADVERTISING NOTICEBOARD
One of the greatest difficulties for jobseekers who are vision impaired
is the problem of finding suitable job vacancy adverts. It is

Internet and that an increasing number of these adverts are accessible
of screenreader software. However, the process of locating and
reading these adverts is still many times more time consuming for a
person who is vision impaired than for a person with normal
vision. VISECTOR is an attempt to resolve this problem by
delivering job vacancy adverts direct to the email inboxes of
jobseekers, thus removing the need to spend large amounts of time in
browsing the Web for jobs. VISECTOR is not a complete solution,

The VISECTOR mailing list at ukvijobs.com has been created to provide a
common noticeboard for advertising job vacancies which may be of
interest to people who are blind or partially sighted in the United
Kingdom. The service is free to
both list members (job seekers) and advertisers (usually employers).
The VISECTOR list carries advertisements for job vacancies from large
and small employers who are open to employing people who are blind or
partially sighted. These adverts are posted to the list as soon
as possible after
they are received, so all list members will have the best possible
opportunity of reading and responding to adverts.
Note that employers are responsible for the content of adverts and that
the VISECTOR list owner, currently Brendan Magill, can accept no
responsibility for adverts or any aspect of the jobs to which they
Job vacancy adverts will be published on the VISECTOR mailing list as
soon as possible after receipt; this will usually be within a few
hours. However, since this service is free to advertisers and
list members, no guarantee can be given in this respect.
If you or your organization wish to advertise job vacancies on the
VISECTOR mailing list, please send them either in the body of an email
message or as an attachment in Word format to the list owner, Brendan
Magill, at email@example.com.
By prior arrangement, provision can be made for regular advertisers to
post direct to the list. This can allow an advertiser to ensure
that vacancies are posted promptly, as well as sometimes being more
convenient for the advertiser.
