Madgex launches responsive design job board for HRJobs.co.uk
HRjobs, from the publisher of HR magazine Mark Allen Group, specialises in matching HR professionals with leading employers. From today jobseekers can access the fully responsive site with enhanced user experience designed to work on any device, whether desktop, tablet and mobile.
Mobile has long been a crucial channel for job boards with 88% of UK jobseekers having used a mobile device to search for jobs in 2013 and tablet traffic more than doubling in the last year. This growing trend led Madgex to develop a new responsive job board platform to meet the needs of today’s multi-device user.
HRjobs.co.uk was built using a design which renders to the device a jobseeker is using without losing any functionality or access to content. The dynamic layout surfaces core elements of the site such as creating an account, setting up email job alerts and search & applying for jobs.
Jobseekers will also benefit from the recent Madgex FileChooser feature, allowing candidates to upload CVs from cloud based services such as Dropbox, Google Drive or SkyDrive. This has long been an issue for jobseekers using a mobile or tablet as many mobile devices can’t store documents such as CVs. Filechooser has opened up job opportunities meaning a quicker apply for job seekers and improved application rates for employers.
Responsive websites serve all content from one URL, meaning there is only one site to manage along with fewer SEO considerations. This helps to increase organic mobile search rankings on major search engines and increased candidate attraction.
Global sales director, Tom Ricca-McCarthy commented, “To quote Google – Mobile was winning, it’s now won. It’s no longer enough just to provide a mobile enabled platform as we have done for many years. Now we have to provide a high quality and consistent user experience for a plethora of devices. There’s been some really fantastic work from our Design team over the last year and it’s great to see customers taking advantage of that innovation in the marketplace”.
This an exciting launch for both HRjobs.co.uk and Madgex. With online recruitment evolving at a quickening pace, we are proud to be supplying technology to customers which can withstand the broadening range of devices flooding the market, whilst still providing an industry leading experience to all users of our job board platforms.
The responsive Madgex platform delivers a better user experience and ultimately an improved financial performance for HRjobs.co.uk.
