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.

GDPR is coming next May and it's been eye-opening for me to see just how much there is to consider to ensure you're fully compliant.

I've heard lots of comments about the fact that companies 'should be already doing all of this' and whilst I agree, the simply truth is, I can't think of many that actually are in full.  There's also quite a lot naivety about Brexit and the impact but the fact is, this is 100% happening.

We're getting close to appointing our official partner to help support clients so if you answer no to one or more of the below questions, get in touch and we'll let you know how we can help.

  1. Do you have a data protection policy?

  2. Does your team get regular data protection training?

  3. Is data protection covered in your company handbook?

  4. Regarding data storage, do you have an up-to-date document which outlines where the data is stored?

  5. Are all files (Excel/Word etc) which have contact data within them encrypted and protected?

  6. Are your personnel contracts compliant with GDPR?

  7. Do you have a documented process for handling subject access requests?

  8. Do you know exactly where your data is stored via 3rd party systems or applications i.e. MailChimp, Accounting System, CRM system etc?

  9. Regarding the systems you may be using which hold contact details, do you know if they are GDPR compliant?

  10. Do you have a clear audit trail for how people joined your mailing list?

  11. Do you have a clear unsubscribe mechanism on your marketing email communications?

  12. Do you have a documented process for how to handle a data protection breach?

  13. Is your office secured effectively to avoid anyone entering and stealing devices with data on them?

  14. Are your mobile phone and tablets secured effectively?

  15. Can you deactivate your mobile/tablet devices remotely to avoid data breaches?

  16. Do you have a data retention policy detailing how you will store data on an individual, how long for and what you'll do when you no longer need those details?

  17. Do you have a privacy statement and terms of use on your website?

  18. Do you have an up-to-date cookie policy on your website detailing what information you will be storing and for what purpose?

This list is the tip of the iceberg but if you've answered 'no' or 'not sure' to any of the questions above, we'd recommend getting in-touch to find out more about how we can help.  We have different specialist consultants to ensure you can soon answer 'yes' to all of the above questions & more which will come your way.  As the deadline closes in, demand will rise for these services so don't wait until the new year, get in-touch today.

Google Analytics tracks users and views to provide key insights into acquisition and behaviour flow, making it a very powerful tool for website owners. If you have installed Google Analytics into your website but haven't looked at the data, or do not understand what the data is telling you, this post is for you. 

Firstly we'll cover the key terms you'll need to understand and some of the key information you can extract from the Analytics tool.

Our Brighton office is buzzing with excitement as Pride approaches this weekend. Rainbows are everywhere, from banners and flags to buses and balloons, and so many small businesses are showing their support for this massive event.

Celebrating Gay Pride as a business is not a new concept, but it is something that is becoming more and more popular, as businesses become more comfortable being part of the celebrations and realise the benefits that can come alongside it.
