Project overview

Challenger Company

Jonathan Thelwell approached Orange Crush to develop an education recruitment platform. Having worked for the leading company in that sector for several years, Jonathan identified an opportunity to establish a challenger company, offering a more personal, tailored service at competitive rates.

The Orange Crush team have been absolutely brilliant in everything they have done for us. If there were a prize for friendliest team of developers in the UK, Orange Crush would win it. OC have understood and genuinely cared for our vision from conception and they have developed a superb, intelligent website solution that we are so pleased with.

The challenge

Challenging Brief

The functional requirements for the platform was quite extensive. Candidates would be able to set up accounts, manage profiles, set up email alerts, apply for advertised positions, track applications and share teaching resources. Recruiters would be able to purchase advertising plans, brand their own school profile pages, post vacancies, manage applications, view vacancy analytics and post employer guides.

The look and feel of the site needed to be professional and welcoming. With so much functionality for both audiences, ease of use was a critical factor.

As a startup, GTJobs had a limited design and development budget available.

What we did

Challenge Met

We were able to deliver all the functionality requested, along with one or two added extras, on schedule and within budget.

Jonathan now has a growing business, with an increasing number of candidates coming to the site and more recruiters signing up by the week.

We are so pleased to have helped Jonathan with his project and wish him continued success.
