This accessibility statement applies to https://temps.aru.ac.uk, the website for ARU Temps which is the on-site recruitment agency for Anglia Ruskin University (ARU).

This website is run by a third-party supplier, Eploy Applicant Tracking System, to contain content produced by ARU and as such the University is responsible for accessibility obligations relating to aspects of configuration of the system within the technical constraints of the product.

We want as many students, staff and external customers as possible to be able to use https://temps.aru.ac.uk and we’ve made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
