Richard James Recruitment Website
Richard James Recruitment is a consultancy specialising in Engineering, Technical and IT recruitment solutions.
Richard James Recruitment specialise in Engineering, Technical and IT recruitment solutions. They aim to place talented individuals in companies suited to their skill set. They needed a new website to establish an online presence which gave confidence and build trust in their brand. They wanted to showcase their personal touch and also display the jobs that they had available live on the website as well as a facility for candidates to apply for the job.
The design had to reflect the technical industries that Richard James Recruitment served as well as their personal touch. The website needed to be very clear and concise and needed to have a jobs board implemented. Potential candidates had to be able to find the current job listings easily and make applications directly from the job page. We also wanted to showcase the uniqueness of Richard James Recruitment to potential employers to build trust and confidence in the quality of candidates that would be provided.
We decided to create one main page which contained all the information required for candidates and employers in a concise manner. The sticky navigation menu meant that it was really easy to navigate the site no matter how far down you had scrolled. To illustrate the technical nature of the recruitment, we used a video that played in the background at the top of the homepage. As background videos cannot be played on mobile devices, we designed a background image based on the logo to use on mobiles and tablets.
We designed graphic elements to be used throughout the site to create strong branding. One example of this was the customised Google Maps marker.
We also implemented a jobs board where the admin could easily add job details and they would show on the front end of the website automatically and candidates could then submit applications for these. We also designed a specific job details page where candidates could find out all the details for a particular job.
