Your careers site is one of the most essential marketing tools for your brand. It is the first place candidates will look to establish what your business can deliver, becoming the ultimate destination for many potential candidates. Your website, therefore, needs to be continually and effectively optimised.

Our latest eBook will give you the context and information you need to get started on your new careers website. We realise that the process of creating a new careers site or simply improving the one you’ve already got can be a daunting task. Careers sites have, traditionally, been seen to have long shelf lives, with regular updates deemed unnecessary.

The importance of a new careers site

But we now live in a time of exponential change and uncertainty. The rapid development of mobile technology has increased candidate expectations of their user experience within the job application process.

Your careers site now needs to be improved and optimised on an ongoing basis to keep up with the ever-changing needs and expectations of candidates. If your business has a brilliantly optimised careers website, it will help to emphasise the brand, creating a positive first impression. It also can, in the long run, save your business money as you won’t have to rely as much on recruitment marketing or job board spend.

Building the business case

Our careers site is a business case that needs to be continuously evolving. One effective way to measure this is by creating measurable ROI. Once you understand what your milestones for success are and how you are going to measure them, you can then develop a clear picture of the ROI of your careers site. By measuring this, you will have evidence to justify an ongoing investment in your careers site.

One of the most important aspects in the undertaking of a new careers site is that, as a business, you take a collaborative approach. With careful management of all the individuals involved, in terms of the consensus and budgets, and by creating an ultimate destination for the candidates, you can develop a website that will continually perform for your business.
