Careerwise Recruitment


The Brief

See how we increased website traffic and conversions for CareerWise Recruitment; a recruitment company with offices nationwide.

Our client asked ePresence Digital Marketing to cater for the changing demands of their website visitors with a big emphasis on making the new website more mobile friendly and easier to use.

The Opportunity

In 2018 CareerWise Recruitment decided to upgrade their website. While results had shown incremental growth for a number of years of working with us, both the client and ePresence recognised the need for a new website to cater for the changing demands of their website visitors with a big emphasis on making the new website more mobile friendly and easier to use. We felt a new website would marry well with our digital marketing objectives and achieve better results and more conversions.

The Challenge

While the old website was mobile responsive, the user experience on mobile devices wasn’t where it needed to be. A mobile first approach focusing on making it easier for the website visitor to search and apply for jobs and submit their CV was imperative with a new website. The old website also looked a little dated and the new website had to look well on both mobile and desktop.

The Approach

The initial objective was focussed on Website Development and the importance of User Experience and Conversion Optimisation. The primary goal for their new website was to make it easier for website visitors to make the desired actions of applying for a job, submitting their cv or signing up to receive job alert emails. Along with Website Development, we focussed on:

  • Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
  • Paid Advertising


The team at CareerWise Recruitment were delighted with how their new website looked and the intuitive search functionality. Combined with a multi channel digital marketing campaign, CareerWise recorded an 85% growth in traffic and significant growth in conversions achieved through their website.
