Background: Uteach, a leading recruitment agency specialising in education and teaching, sought to revamp its digital presence to increase website traffic and job applications. With a rich history of connecting skilled educators with reputable institutions, Uteach aimed to further optimise their recruitment process. Recognising the potential for digital innovation to streamline their operations, they approached our team for a comprehensive solution that would not only elevate their website's performance but also enhance their recruitment CRM software.

Challenges: Uteach faced a dual challenge; their existing website was not attracting sufficient traffic nor engaging potential applicants effectively, leading to lower than desired application rates. Additionally, their recruitment CRM software was lacking in efficiency and performance hindering their ability to manage and process applications seamlessly.

Objectives: The primary objectives were clear:

  2. Consult on and onboard Uteach on to our recruitment CRM software to ensure higher efficiency and performance, enabling Uteach to stand out amongst competitors.

Our Approach: Our strategy encompassed a two-pronged approach, focusing on both the website and the CRM software.

  • Content Strategy: Developed a content strategy to showcase Uteach's unique value proposition, success stories, and the breadth of available opportunities.
  • SEO Optimisation: Employed advanced SEO techniques to improve the site's visibility on search engines, targeting keywords relevant to the education and teaching sector.

CRM Software Enhancement:

  • Performance Analysis: Evaluated the existing CRM software to identify areas for improvement in functionality, speed, and user experience.
  • Integration: Ensured seamless integration with the newly optimised website, facilitating a smoother application process for candidates and easier vacancy management via the new CRM.
  • Training and Support: Provided comprehensive training to Uteach staff on the enhanced CRM system, alongside ongoing support to ensure smooth operation.

Results: The implementation of the redesigned website and enhanced CRM software yielded impressive results:

  • Increased Traffic: Website traffic saw a significant increase, with a 45% uplift in unique visitors within the first three months after launch.
  • Higher Engagement: The application rate through the website improved dramatically, with a 60% increase in completed applications.
  • Efficiency Gains: The CRM software enhancements led to a 30% reduction in the time taken to process applications, allowing Uteach to manage a higher volume of candidates more effectively.
