One of the Agencies within the Department for Transport uses online only job applications in its external recruitment processes. 27 per cent. of the jobs advertised externally by the Department in the last 12 months were online only applications.
The Department includes telephone contact details in job adverts and application packs can be issued in alternative formats for anyone who does not have access to the internet. Applicants who may have difficulty in applying for jobs online can also be helped to identify where they can access the internet e.g. libraries or internet cafes. Alternatively they can provide paper applications on request.
