Green Jobs is a specialist job board that focuses on jobs and careers in the green industry sector.
Covering the global market, with a keen eye on the UK, Green jobs promote hundreds of job postings every month across a multitude of areas, including jobs within environmental, biomass and renewable energy sectors.
What did Green Jobs require?
When Green Jobs approached us they required an entire redesign of their main website as well as other sub-sites. Green Job’s previous website wasn’t responsive enough to adapt to mobiles and this was a key reason for wanting to update the look and feel of the website. It also didn’t meet Google’s mobile friendly responsive requirements, something that, in this day and age is a necessity.
Keeping a clean and fresh design was also important. Green Jobs wanted a clear brand appearance with a colour scheme to match in order to promote their business in the correct manner.
What did we deliver?
We started by proposing a clean, fresh and stylish design, while still maintaining the iconic Green Jobs branding, meeting one of their requirements. During the process we reworked all of the internal pages in order to ensure that they were conformed to conditions that would allow them to be used on a mobile or tablet – meeting Google’s stringent requirements in the process. These pages were also redeveloped in order to fit with the overall look and feel of the new design, keeping the site consistent throughout with a clear and concise focus.
By enhancing the design, the new Green Jobs homepage is now extremely user-friendly, and presented in such a manner that it isn’t cluttered like other job board websites. The improved mobile navigation will be a key asset moving forward for Green Jobs as well as offering increased functionality.
Despite the sheer amount of pages and content contained on a job board like Green Jobs we were able to implement the fresh design throughout, creating individual pages with content that is easy to read, simple to use and great to look at.
Because of the nature of Green Jobs, we were tasked with creating variations of the same site as per their specification when we started the project. We kept this in mind throughout the duration and were able to put together a site that met these goals. With a consistent design that we had proposed and a simple – but effective – colour implementation, we were able to deliver the variations to a standard that Green Jobs needed.
Jonathan Kyle from Green Jobs:
“Thanks for the update and for getting the websites over the line – you have done a great job and they look much better than I imagined they ever would.”
“The Strategies Team have done an outstanding job with the redesign of our 9 websites. They have displayed great project management skills throughout the rebuild and have been extremely proactive with regards to making suggestions and improvements that have been implemented into the new designs of our various websites. This has meant that the functionality and look of the 9 websites is much better than I ever imagined they would be.”
With Green Jobs we’ve been able to deliver a website that wasn’t over the top with design implementation but offered a precise clean look with a professional appearance for potential candidates.
Strategies has been able to provide a site that stands out over other similar job board websites, and provide Green Jobs a platform that is easy to use from the desktop browser through to the responsive mobile site.
