Your careers website is likely to be the first place that a job seeker will be exposed to your employer brand. But the demands of a job seeker are increasing all the time. They are no longer interested in simply finding a job, they’re looking to your website to give them an insight into what it is actually like to work for you. To offer more than a job search engine and online application form, but also information around your culture, values, rewards and benefits, training and development – in fact anything that positions you as an employer of choice.

We develop websites designed to turn loosely-informed visitors to your website into top-quality applications from highly-engaged candidates. But it’s not enough for us to approach a careers website simply from the point of view of a recruiter or a marketer. We need it to guide the right people to the right jobs and to inspire them to apply. And to do this we approach all website development projects from the point of view of the job seeker.

How we can help

Website development

We’re building careers websites designed to meet (or exceed) the expectations of the modern job seeker. We’ll work with you, your brand and digital teams to deliver a website that helps the right people find the right jobs. A website that your people, your target job seekers and Google all love.

Content creation

We want people to be able to see themselves working for your business. We’ll work together to create informative, entertaining and compelling content that will offer job seekers a real insight into what life will be like working for your company. Encouraging them to make an application.

ATS consultancy

Chances are you hate your applicant tracking system. Most companies do. But there is an ATS out there that will suit your needs, the trouble is to find it takes a clear wish list, an idea of the best suppliers and a lot of time. We can help you find the one that best suits your needs.

Search optimisation

There are some things we do because they are the right thing to do – intuitive structure, page layout and clean code. Some we do simply to help raise your profile to the search engines. And some things that we may charge a little more for. All to help improve that all important Google ranking.

Launching your careers website

It’s a hugely satisfying moment when a new careers website goes live. The start of great things – it’s a platform to take your candidate experience to the next level and a new home for all that’s good about working for you. And who knows, maybe an award or two could be heading your way – along with much deserved recognition from your peers.

But it doesn’t happen overnight. Oh no. There’s a lot of work to get to the really fun part of seeing it all shiny and new on the interweb. But, for us at That Little Agency – it’s what we do. So, we thought we’d share some tips. We’d call it our ‘little checklist’ – but it’s not so little.

There will be a lot of things to remember, so buckle-up and let us give you our roadmap for launching your new careers website the right way. Fancy a copy? Click on the link below.
