Launched in January, to-date the new website has seen candidate registrations up 194% and applications increase by 135% compared to this time last year.
Jonathan Lee, founder and Chairman, said: “We are immensely proud of our heritage and history, but equally recognise how important it is to continuously improve; employing the latest technology to communicate more effectively and continue to deliver a premium service.
“We’ve had a very positive response to the new website and it is performing well. We’re always looking for new ways to develop the level of service we offer to candidates, clients and contractors. After carrying out a detailed analysis including heat mapping of our previous website, we were keen to make some adjustments to offer a more visually engaging and interactive experience, making it easier to navigate and locate suitable jobs.”
The candidate section features an interactive dashboard, accessible through social login, where job applications can be managed/tracked and bespoke job alerts created, while candidates can also apply for jobs using their LinkedIn profile. For clients, there are dedicated sector pages that include profiles of consultants outlining their experience and specialism and capability to register a vacancy online.
A timeline of events highlights the company’s heritage; showcasing landmark assignments and the wealth of experience throughout the various manufacturing and engineering sectors. The new website also features industry-specific blogs, news and business updates, whilst offering a mobile first approach to allow visitors easy access to all website features.
