Recruitment agency website design

Stanton House is a leading executive recruitment service committed to delivering a customer-centric recruitment process. With three offices in the UK and one in Hong Kong, they specialise in finding the right applicants for mid to senior level appointments for some of the country’s largest organisations.

Easy by design

Stanton House wanted a new website which would make it as easy as possible for busy candidates to apply for jobs. The site needed to display a direct, live feed from Broadbean – a recruitment software distribution service through which Stanton House uploads and edits its vacancies. Research into recruitment websites showed us that users like to browse on mobile phones, so responsive design was critical to this project.

A seamless Broadbean integration

Packing the new site with multimedia and social media elements demonstrated the company’s customer-focused ethos, whilst developing a direct XML feed allowed data to be pulled into the website directly from the Broadbean portal.

Job applications from mobile phones

The site was highly optimised for mobile so that busy job hunters could search for their next role on their phones, applying directly through LinkedIn.

We enjoyed developing this recruitment website template and learnt a lot during this project. The recruitment sector is something we have invested a lot of web development expertise into during the last 12 months so welcome the opportunity to talk to other recruitment agencies looking for a new website design.

Selecting the right technology

We created an XML data feed which extracts information from Broadbean and stores it in a MySQL opensource database. To make sure the site worked seamlessly on smartphones we used advanced Javascript, Ajax Calls and jQuery touch as well as a mobile friendly Linkedin API which allows candidates to apply through social media rather than emailing a CV.
