Recruitive have been working with Harvey Nichols, a well-loved British retailer since 2016.

Having previously worked with numerous retailers, Recruitive understands why a brand like Harvey Nichols needs to have a fully functional careers website which supports its main corporate e-commerce site.

Being a well-known and desirable brand to work for, their careers website receives a mass of applicants applying directly for job openings.

So, it’s understandable why the brand came to us to make their careers site a place where they could happily advertise information on their career’s opportunities, training courses, apprenticeships and intern placements.

Since helping them with their careers website re-design, a website which previously didn’t match the standards of their competitors, Recruitive have also supplied the luxury retailer with an applicant tracking system, helping the business save money on unnecessary HR costs.

This software now gives them the capability to track and control their recruitment flow of which they were originally doing through spreadsheets and multiple jobs boards, with little reporting methods available.

Their recruitment solution includes a careers website which is attractive, secure and responsive alongside a bespoke application tracking system with interview process functionality.

Since the careers website and applicant tracking system was launched in 2017, its generated tens of thousands of applications from candidates that have registered their CV’s on the website.

Now, Recruitive is working with Harvey Nichols on an exciting long-term project to not only further enhance their recruitment software to meet the ongoing needs of the business, but also their careers website to truly reflect the exciting opportunities that lie within a career at Harvey Nichols.

With the business making changes to their branding on their main website last year, we have updated their careers website to make it cleaner and brighter for Spring, a change which is crucial to ensure branding continuity was kept throughout the candidate journey.

At Recruitive, maintaining brand continuity from the start of the recruitment process is a priority when creating new careers websites for clients.

A careers website like Harvey Nichols should compliment your current brand guidelines and identity seamlessly, avoiding template designs.

Candidates shouldn’t be greeted by pop-ups or new tabs to a separate site that doesn’t share the company branding.

This causes a loss of candidates who become unsure if they’re still applying to the same company.

A well as matching the new branding, we have also updated their website to be more engaging and immersive for candidates with the use of new imagery, including video.

The video that candidates see instantly as they click onto their career’s website further attracts candidates to work for an already desirable UK brand.
