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.

Alamo Blinds , a local showroom of blinds, shutters, curtains and outdoor living, came to us a couple of years ago for a new brand and website for their business after they left the franchise they were in. At the time, we supplied them with a distinctive look and cohesive website which served all of their needs. Now we have been working together to update both the brand and website to give it a more contemporary and established look to go with their successful business.

The Logo

The previous Alamo Blinds logo (pictured below left) was a flowing typeface with a sans serif slogan font. It was friendly, approachable and tidy, but the client felt that he wanted it to be updated to something that can be more clearly read on their vans when they are driving around. The new logo (below right) uses a typeface with more distinct shapes to the letters, making it easier to decipher from further distances. We have kept a friendly and approachable aspect to it in the slogan font, which overall means you keep the same feeling from the old logo, but with added readability and modernity.

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!
