The Societe Generale recruitment website is designed to be accessible to all, meaning that it must fulfil certain digital accessibility requirements. The Societe Generale Group's standard of accessibility is based on Level A WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guide) international recommendations.
Accessibility details for the careers.societegenerale.com website

If, however, you encounter accessibility problems while browsing, please feel free to get in touch using the contact form.
Please note: accessibility has been tested for the “desktop” version of the website, in French and English.
Presentation of information:
Information is structured using semantic features:
- a detailed heading structure,
- a presentation of information in the shape of a list of items.
All information is implemented to separate content from presentation. Personalised style sheets can be used if necessary.
It is possible to adjust font size for text using native browser functions:
- Microsoft Internet Explorer: “View” Menu, then “Text size”,
- Firefox: “View” Menu, "Zoom" then “Zoom text only”
On the website, all links or forms have titles, if required, to make them as clear as possible.
Advice for screen reader users: change the settings to provide “longest of the above” for links and forms. This will ensure that you hear the titles of links on the website and thus receive clearer information.
Special attention has been given to managing the site’s multilingual content. A language selection menu can be found to the left of the login space.
All website functionalities can be accessed using a keyboard. (Note: Internet Explorer is preferred for interacting with Flash-based elements through a keyboard).
