Daring to be Different

Harvey Nichols New Careers Website, ATS
Background

Following the appointment of a new HR Manager, Harvey Nichols approached us, and other providers during 2016 for a brief re-design of their career’s website. Their previous website was poor and did not compare well with their competitors.

They wanted to promote their brand more effectively and wanted to advertise information on their career’s opportunities, training courses, apprenticeships and intern placements.

It also became apparent during our conversations, that there was an opportunity to provide a full applicant tracking system. They were using shared spreadsheets and were paying a large amount to generalist jobs boards over the year, without any tracking or reporting facilities.

Following a lengthy and detailed procurement process, we were selected to provide an attractive, secure and responsive careers website alongside a bespoke application tracking system and interview process.

 

Implementation

The careers website and applicant tracking system were launched late 2017, and all branches and departments were connected in the days following launch. Since its launch, the website has generated 20,000 applications and over 50,000 candidates that have registered their CVs on the website.

 

Launch

Following the website’s successful launch, the next stage of the development process was to alter the interview and tracking process to assist the line managers throughout the company structure.

 

Future

Now, we are continuously updating their system, along with their careers website, to meet the ongoing needs of the business.

We’ve recently been working with their Marketing Department to make changes to their careers website to match the new branding of their main e-commerce website.

This re-design has also included the use of new imagery and video to further engage and attract candidates to one of the UK’s most successful brands on the high street.
