Landex (Land Based Colleges Aspiring to Excellence) is a subscriber organisation with 38 member Colleges and Universities in England and 3 Members in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. To qualify for membership, the provider must deliver significant volumes of education and training in land based occupational areas.
Landex contacted Newedge looking for an experienced Web Agency that could design and build a brand new recruitment website. This new recruitment website was to be specifically for land based colleges. The new website would be provided as a service (benefit) to the current membership but also needed to be designed and built to be made available to non-members for a likely fee.
Landex is a not for profit organisation. Therefore, all services provided are for the benefit of the membership and the continuation of the organisation.
The primary purpose of the new recruitment website is to help the membership in attaining new, relevant candidates in an area that has historically proved difficult.
It is estimated that at any one time there is likely to be between 300-500 vacancies being advertised through the new website.
Portal for Colleges to be able to self manage vacancies and receive notification of applicants.
Portal for Candidates to be able to register interest in vacancy type, apply for jobs, receive job based notifications and receive text and email alert when a new job is posted that matches their search criteria.
Job search module (fully customisable).
It was crucial for Landex that they had total control over the search function to ensure that the UX matched the expectations of both the candidates and the members. Owing to the sometimes technical nature of the vacancies, Landex needed to know that at all times the UX was going to be simple, easy and of course accurate.
