Cordius is a recruitment consultancy which specialises in IT & Computing, Engineering and Supply Chain positions. Cordius approached us as they needed a new website which would integrate closely with their new administrative software. Goals for the project were to make the application process as simple as possible for job seekers and to streamline the process for Cordius staff to publish new vacancies to the site.
We examined analytics data from the old website and found that the percentage of users who applied for jobs was lower than through other channels. We narrowed this down to the over-complicated signup process which required users to create an account on the website before applying for a job. We also found that a surprisingly small number of users were using the job search feature.
We designed the new homepage to give users quick ways to find their next job. Firstly we created a very prominent search box that would be hard to miss, under this we have large buttons which lead to jobs filtered by industry. We also decided to simplify the applications process by allowing job seekers to apply for a vacancy without having to log in. The whole process is now far more user friendly.
In addition to the website we refreshed Cordius’ brand identity by freshening up the colour palette and switching to a modern, friendly typeface.
