Launching HMPJobs - The UK's first Careers Hub for Offender Management and the HM Prison Service.

HMPJobs - Offender Management Jobsboard
We are please to announce the launch of HMPJobs, a new jobs board which is designed to be the first careers hub dedicated to the recruitment of people into Offender Management. This consists of prison officers, prison management and associated support staff across all of the UK prison system.

This jobs board is part of the Blackstone Point group, a longstanding client of ours who also manage a number of jobs boards including Olassjobs and TeachinFE. They approached us as part of an expansion plan to target their next niche market sector, the UK Prison service.

Here is an excerpt from the press release we issued on their behalf:

A career in Offender Management could mean you having the chance to change the course of a person’s life. When that happens, it’s no longer just a job, it’s a vocation.
With the launch of HMPJobs this week, anyone looking for their next career opportunity, or wishing to begin a career in Offender Management, no longer need trawl through countless websites: everything you need is all in one place. HMPJobs works in partnership with UK prisons and is the first Careers Hub of its kind, specialising in promoting Offender Management career opportunities in the Justice sector.
Most of the opportunities offered on HMPJobs are for prison officers, people who dedicate their lives to making a difference. Do you have what it takes to make a difference? Are you firm and assertive yet compassionate and understanding? Are you a good communicator and able to think and act quickly when called upon? Most of all, are you honest and trustworthy, holding yourself accountable to the highest moral standards? 
If the above describes you and you are looking for a challenging yet rewarding career then you should be considering Offender Management. Good pay, a choice of civil service pension schemes and ample opportunity for promotion are just part of the attraction of this exciting career. There are also graduate schemes available enabling graduates to work their way up through the Prison Service.
There are a number of roles you might consider: prison officer, prison management, instructional officer, probation officer, psychologist, tradespeople, support worker or a job in administration or healthcare. Whatever position interests you, it will be as part of a professional and dedicated team whose goal is to help others and perform a service for society.

Unlocking Potential - Graduate Recruitment in Cornwall & SW

www.unlocking-potential.co.uk - Cornwall Jobsboard
This is the second such project we have undertaken. The other was a graduate recruitment site we constructed for the University of Liverpool about three years ago called www.graduatetomerseyside.co.uk, we believe it to be the first of its kind in the country.

In building these sites we have gained a clearer understanding of graduate recruitment including:


  • The employment needs of graduates
  • The graduate recruitment requirements of businesses
  • The revenue generating requirements of universities
  • The careers responsibilities of universities
  • The positive effect on local communities


Now we have these two universities as clients, and excellent working examples of what we are capable of producing, we are planning to offer the same service to other higher education establishments around the UK.

Take a look at www.unlocking-potential.co.uk to see what they have to offer including:


  • Business start-up support
  • Business development
  • Networking events
  • Mentoring


If your university, and the graduates you produce, are looking for a bespoke jobsboard system to take your careers service to the next level, contact Zero-One Design today.

Zero-One Design Unlocking Potential for University Jobsboard

Unlocking Potential - Cornwall Jobsboard
This week has seen the launch of our latest work; a project we took on, requested by Cornwall College, and called Unlocking Potential. This initiative offers start ups, established SMEs and entrepreneurs in the Cornwall and Southwest region 
Added to this range of first rate services is our graduate recruitment jobsboard, to get them started on their chosen career path. It’s good for graduates and, being self-funding, it’s good for the university.
When Cornwall College conceived of this idea they put it out to tender to all jobsboard suppliers across the UK and beyond. Many of our competitors might have been put off because it was a lengthy process, involving highly detailed demonstrations, discussions and communication. 
We were immediately attracted to the idea and were enthusiastic about supporting their efforts in the South West. They were building something worthwhile for their area and we wanted to be part of it. We presented our system to them; it’s a system we have great confidence in, it’s tried and tested and, over the years, has been subject to constant upgrades and innovation.
Here is an excerpt from the press release we issued on their behalf:
There is careers advice available for students and graduates at their universities. These facilities should not be overlooked as what they offer can mean the difference between future success and being an also-ran on the jobs market. They provide advice and support, relying on many years’ worth of experience gained watching students pass through their halls. The website unlocking-potential.co.uk stands as a bridge between graduates and the world of business and industry. There is help available for those looking to start their own business and a jobsboard for companies looking for the brightest and best universities can produce.
Students and their families spend a great deal of money earning a degree. It can mean many years struggling under the yoke of tremendous debt. For the majority it is worth it as they take their first steps along their chosen career path. For others, all it might take is a helping hand to be the difference between winning and not even entering the race.

With over 30 years of experience within recruitment, they have proved that they can provide an industry leading service to clients and candidates and have built many excellent long term business relationships as a result.

They needed an update to their existing site so we put together an example of one of our highly responsive recruitment websites which comes equipped with a Web Service enabling it to receive automated job postings from a remote job posting company. The new site has a cleaner, fresher appearance and is easier to navigate than the old site.

Here is an excerpt from the press release we issued on their behalf:

Bluebaring knows a thing or two about recruitment; they should, their management team boasts over 30 years’ worth of experience finding the right people to suit their clients’ businesses. It is testament to the efforts they put in that many of Bluebaring’s clients have been using their recruitment services for many years. They know that when they need new staff they will be presented with a choice from only the highest quality candidates, all of whom will be interviewed and vetted to ensure they are suited to the role. Bluebaring is continuing its good work with the launch of their new look website this week.
Based on the Thames Gateway, Bluebaring serves London, the Home Counties and the rest of the UK. They offer full time and part time, permanent and temporary, short and long term contract roles across several industry sectors, including white collar, commercial, construction, rail and engineering.
What then is the secret to Bluebaring’s success? Although the consultants employ modern recruitment techniques, everything they do is according to a set of standards that they have always adhered to. These core values are important today as they were when this company was formed, and they are behind everything that they do. They are:
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Reliability
  • Highest quality of service
  • Most cost effective service possible
This means that every candidate that contacts Bluebaring is treated equally and with respect. It means that they won’t be just another statistic on the books and they will be offered roles that suit their particular skillset with excellent employers. It makes a difference.
Adhering to this set of core values makes a difference to how they deal with clients too. It means they only supply talented candidates with the means to make a difference and add an extra ingredient to the existing team. That’s why so many clients have been enthusiastic about the service they receive and have gone on to form long term business relationships with Bluebaring.
