Recruitment Consultants Option Change announce the launch of their new website

Option Change Recruitment Agency
Option Change Recruitment is a new start up featuring an experienced team of consultants based in Borehamwood, Herts. They recruit for full time, part time, long/short term and permanent contracts across the UK in the following sectors: Commercial, IT, Construction, FMCG, Health/Social Care, Industrial, Technical/Engineering, Utilities.
Zero-One Design supplied them with an example of our class leading fully responsive recruitment website. We also designed their logo for them for use on company stationery etc.

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

Going about recruiting a new member of your workforce can be done one of three ways:

  1. You can do it in-house by advertising the role in the newspapers, on various social media sites and there are jobsboards online you can advertise the role on; the word gets out and hopeful candidates start applying. What if the word doesn’t get out though? What if nobody applies? On the other hand, what if hundreds of applications start flooding in? That’s all well and good if yours is a large corporation with a fully functional HR department, but if you’re a small to medium sized business you’d have to employ more staff just to sift through all the CVs!
  2. You can approach a high street employment agency. The problem with some of these is they are concerned with quantity, not quality. You’ll be sent applicants alright, not necessarily the sort you’d prefer though.
  3. You can speak to Option Change Recruitment.

Option Change Recruitment offers opportunities for skilled, experienced professionals who are looking for their next challenge, and recent graduates leaving university looking for the first step on their chosen career path and ready to take on the world.

Their clients have been impressed at how Option Change has assembled a team of recruitment consultants who can rely on many years’ worth of experience, both in recruitment and hands on experience in the individual industrial sector that they are recruiting for. You can be assured, therefore, that they know exactly the calibre of person you are looking for.

What many employment agencies fail to understand is that it is not just about filling a vacancy; the candidate needs to be right for the role. Option Change consultants take the time get to know the candidate, they get to know where their strengths and weaknesses lie. It’s not just about finding someone with the qualifications, experience and skillset required to do the job. They need to match the drive and ambition of the employer; they need to fit in with the current team so they all pull in the same direction. Option Change consultants take the time to get to know the client, they learn about the prevailing culture at the firm then use their own experience to find the candidate who best matches that culture.

Announcing the launch of new website by financial services recruitment consultancy Avenoir Group

Avenoir Group - Financial Services Recruitment
Avenoir Group is a recruitment consultancy based in Leeds that specialises in the financial service sector. It offers opportunities for finance professionals to further their career in wealth management, financial advice and paraplanning.
We designed for them a bespoke recruitment website that is fully responsive and should serve their needs admirably. 

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

After spending years in financial services recruitment, Avenoirs founder knew there were better ways of getting the job done, but was tied down by having to satisfy his KPIs every day. This left him with little time to do what actually works. After a while he decided enough was enough and left them to start a recruitment consultancy that does work.
While others fail to move with the times, Avenoir Group is already ahead of the curve. While others bury clients under reams of unsuitable CVs, Avenoir Group goes the extra mile to understand the client’s needs before using unique and complex techniques to deliver a shortlist of perfect candidates. In this way, Avenoir consultants believe, there is more chance of employee retention. 
Clients respond to this level of service. They come back for more every time a vacancy arises. It is how long lasting relationships and solid partnerships are built. That level of commitment to excellence and hard work never goes unnoticed, or unrewarded. It is why Avenoir Group is already forming partnerships with some of the best known brands in the financial services market. It is why some of the best talent in the business have already signed up, with over 100,000 on the candidate database and counting!
Based in Leeds and serving the entire UK financial services industry, Avenoir Group offer tremendous opportunities for finance professionals to further their career in wealth management, financial advice and paraplanning. The recruitment consultants at Avenoir receive intense training to make them real experts in their field. That’s why candidates, who have made it past the stringent vetting process, know that they are talking to someone who has in depth knowledge of the subject matter.

Revamped website launch for East Anglia’s favourite recruitment consultancy Just Recruitment

Just Recruitment - East Anglia Recruitment Agency
Just Recruitment is a long-standing consultancy with several offices covering the East Anglia region.
They are currently investing in infrastructure and rebranding their company and thought it was time to revamp their existing ageing website with something more robust. Zero-One Design worked with their marketers and software designers, Bond recruitment software, to produce a brand new, fully responsive website that will take their mission forward.

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

Just Recruitment has been East Anglia’s leading independent recruitment agency since its founding back in 1983. From the beginning it has showed an urge to improve its scope and catchment area and has spread unerringly throughout the region opening offices in Ardleigh, Haverhill, Ipswich, Sudbury and Witham. Along with this geographical growth, it has also grown to be a part of the community; employing over 2000 temporary workers at any given time and providing permanent jobs for many more.

Anyone who claims that Just Recruitment is about nothing more than just recruitment couldn’t be wider of the mark. The just philosophy is “Placing People First”.  It is a motto that the consultants have lived by since they first joined the company. It is about treating individuals as individuals, treating them fairly and with respect and being honest in all their dealings. People respect that in return.

The fifty qualified and experienced consultants employed by Just Recruitment aren’t interested in just hitting targets and pushing candidates into unsuitable positions. What would be the point? They get to know the candidates, interviewing them at length. They find out what their strengths and aspirations are, what they want and what they can offer. Only then can they determine the best match for them from the wide range of opportunities on their database.

They will work with the candidate to produce a professional CV and personal profile before introducing them to potential employers. If required they will prepare the candidate for the interview, make themselves available to answer any questions and offer support, giving them every chance of succeeding.

New clients will join over 200 existing clients who have enjoyed the relationship they have forged with Just Recruitment over the years and keep coming back, confident that their vacancies will be filled with exactly the right candidate for the job.

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 - 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, 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 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 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.
