Empire Recruitment was established in 2011 to source and supply both temporary and permanent staff across many sectors of the Irish economy. They provide an intelligent recruitment service, delivering excellence and customer satisfaction. The brief for this project was to redesign the old outdated website and give it a new fresh user-friendly interface. It was vital to the client that employees could easily search and apply for jobs online.
The platform chosen for this project was WordPress. The client’s main focus for this website was to create a site that employees could search for jobs, create an account, apply online, save jobs of interest and get email updates on new jobs in their industry. It was essential that the website was easy to navigate for users to find exactly what they are looking for quickly. Amy was the team member chosen for this project.
Functionalities added to the website are as follows; a live search function that can be filtered by keywords, industry, contract type and location. Online account creation to store and hold employees contact details for any future jobs of interest. Apply online feature to make it easy to upload and send CV’s. Bookmark feature to allow users to revisit jobs of interest and email notifications on new jobs uploaded to the website.
Included in this project was the set-up of the Google My Business account. As Empire Recruitment have recently added a new branch it was extremely important to have this on Google Maps. Along with SEO to ensure they are right up there with all competitors in the industry. Image optimisation and site speed to ensure no user is left sitting waiting for the website to load.
Upon project completion, the client went through training with us to ensure they were all comfortable creating new jobs on the website. They are all now able to add jobs and contact potential candidates through the website with ease. This was something they had struggled hugely with before on the old website.
The end result is a fully functional user-friendly website with makes applying for new jobs a breeze for all candidates. This website was launch in August 2021. The client is currently on a maintenance plan which includes monthly reports on website performance and a quick turnaround on any queries or changes.
