William James Recruitment is a specialist legal recruitment business. They have been clients of I-COM's for many years and over time their business has evolved. They now act principally as head hunters looking to place senior lawyers within new firms.
The company's old website was quite traditional and not mobile friendly - they came back to us with the challenge of making them look great and current.
The agency wanted a new design that was up to date but still was able to reinforce the message that this business is as Mancunian as they come.
The site also had to be delivered on a limited budget and within very tight timescales as there was a deadline to meet.
Our designers worked with the client to make sure they understood how the brand had developed in order to create a new look that appealed.
The site was then built on a simple version of our Recaza platform, that enables very simple editing.
From start to finish because we used pre-existing content we were able to deliver the project in under three weeks.
The new site not only drove more visitors, but interaction with the website increased significantly with CV registrations rising by 100% in the month following launch of the site.
Enquiries are up as well as traffic and importantly the site is can now be easily navigated on a mobile phone.
Our site redevelopment for the recruitment agency resulted in an improved functionality that has helped to change the way clients and candidates alike view William James Recruitment.
This new perspective on the brand has helped to elevate the standing of the agency in the Manchester legal sector and has in turn driven increased numbers of registrations and enquiries. The amount of registrations William James now receive has improved massively and the business is now proud of its website and able to use it to drive on to even greater things.
