Check out these inspiring careers websites, from organisations who really know how to market their workplaces to candidates!
As you explore Vend's careers site, small features break up the larger pieces of content - adding personality and keeping the reader's attention. These include a quote from a company senior which gives a sense of leadership and charisma, and a quick tip that every new staff member gets a sweet pair of Chuck Taylors, in Vend green!
One of our favourite aspects of the Vend careers website is their 'Are We Compatible'? quiz. It's an easy (and dare I say it, fun!) quiz to take which helps Vend see how well you'll fit in with their culture. Powered by Weirdly, a recruitment app designed here in NZ "to help you find those weird commonalities that make people the perfect fit for your organisation."
This British television network employs a couple of stand-out ideas on their careers websites. One is an infographic to show (by how a programme gets from idea to on-air) all the different departments and roles in the business, and how they interact. Infographics are an awesome way to articulate complex information in an easy-to-digest and memorable way.
We also love their 'We're a Network that likes to network' page, which has their Twitter and Facebook feeds embedded, and (best of all) a LinkedIn widget, which allows a jobseeker to see who they know within the company!
As you'd expect, there's loads to love about Google's careers website - but there's one idea in particular we think you should consider including in yours... Google has a How We Hire section, giving candidates a deeper understanding of how they interview, and how they decide. Help your candidates understand the interview process so they arrive prepared, and ready to present their best selves.
Put yourself in the shoes of someone considering a job at a service station. Then watch this company intro video by New Zealand's Z, and tell me who you'd rather work for - Shell, BP, Caltex... or these guys?
We also love that Z have included a full electronic version of their well-designed, engaging Values booklet (called The Z Why) online, so that anyone interested in joining them can easily find out, in great detail, what the company stands for and how they do things.
