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.

What better way to sell gorgeous products than on a beautiful, sleek and modern website?  

Home by Rachel  provides beautiful home interiors, stunning jewellery and a bespoke range of hand-poured luxury candles. Rachel came to us with a bland but functional website that didn't entice people off the home page, so in our redesign we ensured that the site looked bright, welcoming and interesting.

With large, good quality images and sliders the site began to look a lot more attractive, and the new clearer layout made the site easier to navigate. The intimacy of the brand is represented through the personal feel of the website, whilst the stunning imagery indicates the thought that has gone into each quality product.

At the end of October a new version of Google Chrome was released that clearly labels any website without an SSL Certificate as ‘non-secure’. This will be shown in the browser bar clearly to the online user.

This will effect a huge range of websites, particularly e-commerce sites or any that contain input fields, like password requests and contact forms. Studies indicate up to 84% of online shoppers will abandon their purchase once seeing that a site is not secure ( Source ). Having an SSL certificate gives your website the green padlock, reassuring customers that they are in a safe location to purchase goods and enter their details.

Not only do your customers prefer secure sites, but Google does too. With Google favouring secure sites, your search engine rankings are more likely improve and your conversion rates more likely to increase. It’s simple!

In a world where everyone is a 'Professional iPhone Photographer' and point-and-shoots are as affordable as ever, it's important that your business stands head and shoulders above the rest by using professional photography. Anything other than that for your business won't say much for your product or brand and it's unlikely to hit the right spot with your intended target audience.

So now you know you need professional photography, but how can you justify the cost? Good quality photographs can be used for a multitude of different promotional activities, from social media to company vehicles to print marketing - the list is endless! Make the most of the photos you've had taken by using them across a variety of channels - elevating your brand and giving more people the opportunity to see your work.
