Our careers site offering has become increasingly more popular over the past few months as companies are clearly seeing the value of showcasing their brand and giving candidates a targeted location for their job seeking interests.
Careers sites are a really good way of engaging passive candidates and also promoting your company benefits and values, whilst helping people understand what it is like to work within your business. Careers sites also give your company the edge over the competition and will assist you in attracting quality talent.
The Blue Octopus digital team have been busy working on a range of bespoke, fully responsive careers sites for some really big brands. The most recent of these to go live are:
The David Lewis site is the perfect platform for seamlessly guiding their candidates through the recruitment process and to their Octo FirstClass recruitment system. As David Lewis is a charity which provides support for people with learning difficulties it was a requirement required that we designed the site with accessibility in mind. Which is why we have created the site to be very visual and easy to read with adjustable text size for users that are visually impaired.
Coleg Cambria careers project had a lot of boxes to tick. The site had to clearly promote the college branding, provide a Welsh translation alternative (on the front end and in Octo) and obviously look amazing on a mobile device.
We believe that the bold site not only fits the brief but goes above and beyond what was asked for by the client. The marketing and HR teams at Coleg Cambria were really pleased with the end result!
As a market leader within manufacturing Promat were looking for a cleaner, more straight forward way presenting their recruitment brand. They also wanted give the users an insight into what it is like to have a career at Promat.
Their HR Director, Steve had these kind words to say about the careers site service:
‘Blue Octopus supported Promat with the development of a careers microsite that was embedded within our new company website and branded to match, providing a seamless candidate experience. They also built in a link to a candidate management system which allowed us to manage on-line applications. We were impressed with the professional appearance of the completed site and found the team at Blue Octopus to be extremely helpful in guiding us through the process. We feel that we now have an on-line presence that presents Promat in the best possible way.’
