How to Make your Recruitment Website Stand Out

Recently, we have been hard at work developing a new website for the fantastic recruitment company  Calibre Candidates , based in Reading. This presented a series of opportunities when it came to mapping out the user journey for both candidates and clients going forward. Different industries have different priorities for their websites and recruitment companies need a website which is easy for job-seekers to navigate and enables them to easily submit their CV making the experience of finding a job as hassle-free as possible.

Their new website has been streamlined to offer a well-guided service of uploading your CV along with options to add a URL to your LinkedIn profile to add further depth to your application. The sign-up service also enables Calibre Candidates to provide a more tailored service to job-seekers as there are more questions asked about themselves and what they are looking for. The layout of the website has been designed to provide a modern feel as well as making it very easy to understand and use. It was important to Calibre Candidates that the design would be responsive to improve the experience on mobile devices as well. The design also highlights important information for the user such as a list of recent jobs on the main home page as well as the location, salary, and the type of contract. All of the different sections are clearly labelled in the navigation menu which remains anchored in place as the user scrolls down the page meaning fast access to any of the different sections wherever they are on the page.

Tailoring website functions to match the needs of your users can be extremely beneficial to your your business, your clients, and your website users. For Calibre Candidates, Digity have considered all aspects of the user experience in order to create a browsing and job hunting experience that is simple, functional, and aesthetically pleasing.

Lulu Lush is a remodelled ice cream van dishing up cocktails everywhere from intimate parties to festival-scale events as well as offering a party planning service.

Over the last month you may have noticed the cleaner look to the LinkedIn interface and the new features that have appeared within this new makeover.  However, this isn’t just a small change - the upgrade has created a faster, smoother, easier-to-navigate site with a layout very similar to that of Facebook. So, what are the main changes and enhanced features you really need to know about?

Here are a couple of the best bits about the new upgrade to ensure you and your business are making the most of LinkedIn:

1/ The LinkedIn messenger features have leaned more towards the Facebook Messenger in appearance. But, the best part for us is the suggested responses feature to InMail (available on premium). This means you can very quickly get back to people with an automated response letting them know if you are interested or not. This response can be edited to make the message more personalised.

On Thursday 23rd March, the Digity team travelled to Heathrow with cars full of stand equipment, brochures, televisions, and tables ready to wow the visitors at the West London Business Show.

As marketing partners with the show, our signage, brochures and media designs surrounded the hall including huge signs showing the schedule for the day. Our banners and leaflets were unmissable. With the schedule often changing only a couple of days before the show, our designers were flexible, quick and innovative in adapting to alterations in a short time span. The brochures, signage and other advertising media were sent off to the printers and you can see below how great they looked in time for the show!
