The founders of Supply Chain Recruit were originally employed within the supply chain sector and then became recruiters with this sector. They created Supply Chain Recruit as a separate venture from their main recruitment business. As the jobs board grew in activity, they originally approached a number of jobs board developers and selected Zero-One Design to create it. Zero-One became part of the Recruitive business in February 2019. Supply Chain Recruit was therefore, first jobs board that we developed, in 2002. Now in its 17th year, we are now pleased to announce it’s fourth re-launch and revamp.
Supply Chain Recruit is the UK’s Number 1 jobs board for Procurement, Logistics & Supply Chain Jobs. With in excess of 100,000+ active supply chain professionals, 6,000+ advertisers and hundreds of applications on a daily basis, Supply Chain Recruit is an extremely busy and active jobs board system.
As an “old” jobs board, Supply Chain Recruit had different issues to contend with, in comparison to a new jobs board. It already had good search engine positioning, but the old website was not mobile compatible and was not secure or GDPR compliant. He was also being targeted by their competitors, so to keep ahead of them as the leading jobs board, he simply had to upgrade and upgrade quickly. We had to ensure that the changeover was smooth for his candidates and clients while also avoiding his website being penalised by Google. We were able to use our 301 re-direction tool to remap all of his old URLs and the website was switched from preview to live, within 24 hours. Not only have their search engine positioning been retained, they have also been boosted. They now have page 1 positioning across a large range of search phrases.
The new website was built using our very latest jobs board system, which is secure, responsive and GDPR compliant.
