Website development / Website design / User experience

BACKGROUND

Part of the Venture Marketing Group, EngineerJobs is a careers website for both professionals and graduates in the engineering & construction sector. It offers the latest vacancies, advice and guidance, as well as up-to-date information about the EngineerJobs Live recruitment exhibitions.

The Brief

After the success of the design and development of the GradJobs website, Venture Marketing Group asked us to create websites for other brands in their digital portfolio. Based on the same functionality, each site would follow a specific UX and design approach to suit the specialist area and target audience of the site.

CONNECTING ENGINEERS AND EMPLOYERS

It was important for the EngineerJobs website to provide visitors with a wide selection of industry-specific news, advice and guidance.

The blog section of the website allows people to choose content based on specific topics, such as careers advice, industry news or more focused articles. It also offers an open search facility where visitors can seek articles based on a particular word or phrase.

BETTER FOR ENGINEERS SEEKING A JOB

It was vital that graduates and professionals in the engineering sector could find available jobs quickly and easily when they visited the site.

Our UX design team looked at how the usability of the search function on the website could be improved. Visitors can now sort their results based on job title, company name, the date that the job was posted and the application deadline.

They can also filter their search based on a selection of specific industry sectors, different locations across the UK and contract type. Search results will also display an icon to indicate whether the company will be exhibiting at the EngineerJobs Live events.

MY ENGINEER JOBS

The My EngineerJobs section of the website allows visitors to create their own personal account.

Once logged in, visitors can save jobs and searches, apply online, set up job alerts, access their job history, upload their CV, and update their details. 

As well as being able to search for live vacancies, people can also find out more about the companies and organisations offering roles.

The list of employer pages can also be filtered based on whether they are attending or speaking at an EngineerJobs Live event.

BETTER FOR COMPANIES SEEKING ENGINEERS

Organisations seeking experienced engineering professionals can create their own company profile and post specific roles on the site.

They can also use the digital advertising space that is available on the site to promote their services.

DRIVING ATTENDANCE & MANAGING SIGN-UPS

An important element of the site was the ability to promote the exhibitions, conferences, workshops, clinics and presentations offered by EngineerJobs.

The EngineerJobs Live page of the website gives organisations an opportunity to exhibit at the latest event and individuals the chance to find out more and book tickets. Visitors can also sign up to EngineerMail to receive the latest news and updates from the website.

Since our content management system, thinkCMS, is based on a responsive design, it can be logged into via any device, allowing those with admin access to manage both company and personal profiles, as well as edit images and content, wherever they might be.
