21 professional services website design and development case studies
21 of the 200 websites we have designed and developed for clients such as recruitment agencies, manufacturers, watch shops and other professional services companies.
The majority of our website projects have been developed and hosted on the Adobe Business Catalyst platform; that provides a content management system, hosting, e-commerce, custom development tools and many other features.
We re-designed and developed this recruitment website to attract 2 different audiences.
There are 2 different messages on the home page.
Looking for a job is aimed at job seekers.

The service is pre employment checks and staff on-boarding services that companies can use before and during staff recruitment.

Additionally the client can choose the colour of the heading text.

The home page explains who the client is, what they do and provides direction for organisations seeking to understand and potentially use their services and for job seekers seeking to find the vacancies.
The second part of the home page is aimed at job seekers who want to quickly search and find suitable vacancies.
Underneath the search functionality on the home page are linked to the key job types; strategic, senior, managerial, administration and legal vacancies.
Job vacancy list
The Job Vacancy web app has 2 parts to it.
The job list view shows the job title, a snippet of the vacancy description, location, salary and job type.
Job vacancy detail
This is the full detailed description of the job where we created a strong call to action to "Apply" or “Apply via LinkedIn”.
When the user clicks either Apply button, the application form is revealed and the user can easily and quickly add their details and add their CV and apply for the vacancy.
Once users apply and give the relevant consent, a user account is created for them.
When the job application is received, the client gets notified, the candidate gets notified and the user details are added to the CRM section on the backend of the website; displaying the job they applied for, the sector, sub sector, cv and their name, email and phone.
Vacancy registration and account
These sections are all tied together with the email address as the unique identifier.
The user can update their details and their sector, sub sector, job types preference.
This enables our client to target users with job email alerts.

These services are managed in a web app.
Client can add an image, text, and a call to action link to find out more about the product.
First impressions count so visitors are presented with large images of the new properties when they visit the websites.
These images are contained in a web app powered slide show.
The client simply adds images, text and a link to the page they wish the user to visit when they click the image or link.
The remainder of the home page is information about the client that is content optimised to help them rank in Google.
The services web app is split into a list view and a detailed view.
On this page you see a summarised list of their services; attic conversions, tiles, bathrooms, doors, kitchen extensions and house conversions.
Then on the detailed service layout there is a photo gallery showing different examples, followed by information and a get in touch button at the foot of the entire services page.
We also added in some social share buttons that enable the client or website visitors to share the page and image on social networks and send interested friends or contacts back to the website.

The home page has a top navigation menu with links to key product categories and footer navigation to necessary pages and company information.
These menu item links can be changed or re-ordered in the backend content management system.
Products are grouped into categories and the list of product categories are displayed on the shop. The client is able to re-order and change these items in the backend content management system.
