Head Resourcing goes mobile!
May 1, 2013
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that our mobile-responsive site is now live!
We recognised that people are using their mobiles more and more often to browse the web, read news, tweet, post on Facebook, and, among a million and one other things, look for jobs. In fact, mobile traffic on our site has gone up a staggering 94% based on the same quarter last year, so there couldn’t be a better time to launch the new mobile version.
We want to provide our visitors with a great web experience, and we think our new responsive site does just that. You can access everything that is on our desktop site, because it’s actually the same website – it automatically shrinks to fit the screen on your mobile.
Can I apply for roles on the mobile site?
A lot of mobile recruitment sites make you sign up for an account, fill in lots of forms, and upload a CV that you are happy to attach to every job application. This isn’t very quick, and very few mobile platforms can allow you to upload a CV stored on your device, so we had to think of a way to allow people to apply for roles quickly and easily.
Enter ‘Apply with LinkedIn’.
We’ve been using this great tool on our site since we launched it in May 2012, and we’ve seen the uptake increase significantly over the last year. All you need to do is tap ‘Apply with LinkedIn’, enter your login details, and submit your application. We then receive a copy of your LinkedIn profile, containing your job history, relevant skills and recommendations.
This method does of course mean you’ll have to make sure your LinkedIn profile is up-to-date – check out our Five LinkedIn tips for candidates blog for some great pointers.
What if I don’t have a LinkedIn profile?
We do realise that not everyone has a LinkedIn profile too, so you can also drop us an email from your device to tell us you’re interested in a particular role, and we will contact you.
We really hope you love our new mobile site, and we would really appreciate any feedback you’d like to give us in the comments below.
Take me back.
