Website of the Week: Hawkeye Recruitment Firm


This week's website of the week goes to Hawkeye Recruitment Firm. At Hawkeye, they pride themselves on their purpose, that is: finding the right quality people for employers’ highly specialized, hard to fill positions!

Senior Project Manager Lanara, began firstly by creating a responsive website design following the clients brief. The website needed to be a clean professional website, with strong call to actions and a clear and easy to follow navigation.

The website uses a full width panel layout, each panel bespoke made to the clients requirements. The home page features boxes that link through to pages they would like to highlight, as well as a slide show with captions for each frame. Each panel is stylised and created to fit the contents purpose.

The main aim of the website is to be a place for people to find out more information and to visit the list of job vacancies available. The footer that features on every page houses all of the useful information along with contact and social media information.

The contact page features a full width map for location, and an easy to use contact form to capture any enquiries or questions. There is also a bright yellow banner which a call to action button for those looking to get in contact.

Senior Project Manager Lanara made sure that each page follows the brand guidelines. The panels are either white, blue or an image panel. Each page is different but they follow a consistent style. The imagery was chosen carefully to reflect multi-ethnicities as well as sexes. There are a number of abstract style graphics and images used to reflect certain topics as well.

The candidates page features an email alert button, in order to capture a persons contact details in order to alert them of future job vacancies or related news. The jobs page features a third-party iframe for a program that stores and utilises the job vacancies. The about page features an attractive time line of the company and it's progress, which is a different way of displaying information to just having plain text. We created a favicon that appears next to the business name in the browser window. This was taken from their logo, and uses the small eye shown in the lettering.

The client was incredibly happy with the end result and kindly awarded us 5 stars out of a possible 5.

"We are completely satisfied with the service received! Customer Service, flexibility and reliability are all given five stars! What is great Toolkit Websites is the consistent communication between project managers and their customers, and admirable understanding of what we need, bringing this to life to reflect exactly what we wanted! This makes for top-quality service worthy of praise. For this reason will certainly use Toolkit websites for other smaller/upcoming project websites, and will spread the word about the impeccable service!"
