Made to measure IT talent.
Fruition IT specialise in the recruitment of IT professionals. They approached us looking for a fresh new website that broke away from their existing stale, corporate site and injected personality and professionalism while allowing their customers to search their current vacancies quickly and efficiently.
We further enhanced the site with a fully-featured blog and social media integration, allowing them to stay connected with candidates.
We liaised directly with Fruition IT’s technical job board provider Broadbean to develop a bespoke job feed that allows us to integrate directly into their existing systems. Visitors can apply for jobs on the site and their details are fed back into their systems, allowing Fruition IT a seamless, integrated workflow.
Once a job is received from Broadbean we utilise Google’s Geolocation API to geocode the job location to latitude and longitude values. We then use the Haversine formula to allow visitors to search by location within a specific radius. This enhanced search, combined with the standard keywords and job type search allows potential candidates to find the right job for them quickly and easily.
Over 60 million websites are powered by Wordpress, a powerful open source content management platform. We love Wordpress because it offers great power and flexibility as well as offering our clients a clear and simple way to manage their sites.
We developed a customised Wordpress installation tailored to Fruition IT’s specific needs, giving them a clear and simple method for managing their content.
Our work doesn’t stop with development. We also wrote a bespoke user guide to walk the client through managing the various areas and custom post types that make up their site with clear real-world examples.
The range of devices accessing sites is constantly changing, whether that be high resolution desktop machines, laptops, netbooks, tablets or mobile devices, it’s become vital to allow our sites to adapt intelligently.
By using advanced CSS techniques and media queries, we provided an optimal viewing experience by serving different styles based on the user’s screen resolution. This means that the site automatically adapts and reformats to ensure that it is just as beautiful, clear and easy to use, no matter what device is being used.
