Direct Recruitment are a well established recruitment agency based in Stone, Staffordshire. They recruit for a number of industries including healthcare, administrative, executive, driving and more.
Creative Influence were approached to re-design their current website. It needed a refreshing and modern overhaul of the design, to encompass a friendly and modern agency which would appeal to both business owners and candidates looking for a new job. There were a number of broken links, and the navigation needed rearranging to make it more simple and straightforward.
The project was fairly simple, since the content was to remain the same and it was to remain on the WordPress platform. The job consisted of cloning the existing website and installing a new theme, reorganising the page layout, and installing a new system for the job descriptions, which allowed for a better search functionality and a better layout of the descriptions which was easier on the eye. The system also allows candidates to apply for a vacancy with the option of including their CV on each description page which makes it easier for candidates to do, especially from a mobile device – essential for future-proofing the site’s design.
We also wanted to emphasise the legacy of the business, which has been in business for nearly 25 years and showed the experience and expertise of its staff. To do this, we included an eye catching time line to attract the users attention to the history of the company.
The staff at Direct Recruitment were thrilled with the new design. The completing of the project required minimal input form then, enabling them to continue the daily affairs of the business while the new site was developed. They are looking forward to the new year to see how the new site will improve the service they provide to both their clients and candidates.
