Deciding on the best recruitment website when you’re a large recruiter can be a real challenge. From a start-up, you might now find yourself operating nationally, in a number of sectors or have grown through merger or acquisition? Perhaps you have opened an overseas office? All of these factors can make choosing a website quite complicated, especially if you’ve experienced quite rapid growth and your website suddenly doesn’t meet your needs anymore.
In this blog post, we talk about the key things larger recruitment agencies need to consider when commissioning a new website.
- How will my recruitment website perform in Google?
There’s no denying, this is absolutely critical. If you aren’t on page 1 of Google, then you may as well forget it. You need a recruitment website that has in-built SEO capabilities and is Google for Jobs optimised.
- How can a new recruitment website represent the different areas of my recruitment agency?
Your agency might operate in different sectors, or you might have regional or national recruitment offices. In Reverse Delta’s experience, websites that are highly RELEVANT to what candidates are searching for will perform best. Workforce is one of our long-standing clients and they recruit for a number of different sectors across the West Midlands. We created a branded website for each division so that all the jobs were highly relevant to what candidates are searching for. But, they are managed and hosted as a multi-website, saving our client money and making the website easy to manage, through a single CMS. This saves time with only one sign in and content that was created for one website, can simply be copied to another.
If your agency operates across different sectors, or if you have a number of recruitment offices, creating several ‘local’ websites under your brand will be a cost-effective way of getting an SEO optimised and highly relevant recruitment website.
- How can my recruitment website streamline my processes?
With a brilliant candidate portal, it’s possible for candidates to sign in with their social media account and populate a large amount of data from their LinkedIn profile.
In addition, an FXRecruiter website will integrate with a large number of CRMs, including Bullhorn, Broadbean and Itris. There’s loads more that we integrate with (check them out here) and if there’s any missing, we can link FXRecruiter up to them, assuming that the database or CRM has an open API.
- How can my recruitment website support my marketing initiatives?
With the opportunity to auto-post your jobs on to 15 different recruitment websites and share them easily on social media, a big chunk of your marketing work is being done for you.
In addition, FXRecruiter websites have the option to create campaign landing pages for specific roles or sectors. For example, you might have an initiative to find graduates or customer service staff – so with a landing page you can provide all the reasons why a candidate would want to register with you in a single page, rather than expecting them to land on your website.
The FXRecruiter website has a highly-intuitive Content Management System so it’s easy to hand full management over to your marketing team, so you can make changes to your website in-house, without needing to come back to us every time you want a new page creating.
An FXRecruiter website also allows full reporting and analytics, so your marketing team can report back on their successful campaigns safe in the knowledge that they are working on real-time, accurate information.
- I am now operating overseas; do I need a separate website?
Your FXRecruiter website can support multiple languages and will auto-adapt to settings in a user’s web-browser as well as offering a menu of languages on the site itself. This means you can engage with candidates and clients in their own language. So make a winning impression, in your audience’s own language and convey more credible affinity with ‘local’ markets.
We can also tailor your website to present your website in different parts of the world – but all on the same website! This means different pages (even the homepage), different sectors and specialisms, different jobs (naturally!), different teams, different imagery and videos, different blogs, different news… different whatever – wherever you are in the world. FXRecruiter displays it all automatically based on where the user is located. Users can always switch between regions as they want with flag icons or a region selector. So capture your benefits of targeting content more specifically at local audiences and present the right content in the right places with functionality for one website.
- Who can I trust to do custom-development for my website?

This is exactly what happened when we met GiveaGradaGo in 2018. Cary had previously been let down by two other recruitment website providers, who did not have the expertise to deliver his specific technical specification. After 18 months, and two failed attempts at delivering a website, he was referred to Reverse Delta by a friend as a last resort. Not only did we deliver on time and to budget, we also won a National Online Recruitment Award in 2018 for the site – www.giveagradago.com.
