About Shaw Trust   

At Shaw Trust we believe everyone has the right to live a decent and dignified life and an opportunity for rewarding work. We are a social purpose organisation challenging inequality and breaking down barriers to enable social mobility. 

Having grown from humble beginnings in 1982 in the village of Shaw in Wiltshire, finding jobs for disabled people, today we are a complex and diverse charity committed to employment as the core pathway to a better life.  For us being part of the solution is about creating the conditions for this to happen, advocating and delivering services that make a real difference. Working in partnership not competition, we are part of an eco-system of purpose-led organisations, striving for a fairer, more equal society centered on opportunity for all. 

Role Purpose 

We are seeking to recruit a Technical Analyst who is keen to learn, has an interest in technology, and specifically digital accessibility. Someone with a computer science or software engineering degree, or keen interest in web technologies would be a good baseline to grow and develop from. As a member of Accessibility Services, you will become part of our technical team working closely with our Assessors to help organisations gain accreditation against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We work with customers as they start designing their website or app through to product creation and launch, and provide testing, technical support and consultancy. Our in-house Digital Testing Team is unique in the market place, and has first-hand experience of disability and assistive technology, which brings a real-life perspective, both personally and professionally.
