Case Study

Students' Unions Recruitment website

Student Unions

In the United Kingdom, Students’ Unions are independently run, often registered charities working alongside educational institutions. They exist to provide support to and represent the interests of students while they are studying in higher or further education.

The complex governance and shared leadership between staff, officers and a Trustee Board sets them apart from the usual charity governance models.

The Website

As you can tell, Students’ Unions can be complex places to work in. Often, a Students’ Unions recruitment process can have a number of steps. Prospective candidates need help navigating through policy, governance and many other aspects of the organisations.

A website was commissioned that would both explain the Students’ Union sector, context, governance, policy and more. It’s focus was to provide the ability for Students’ Unions on a budget to create job microsites.

Information Gathering

People aren’t usually interested in spending a lot of time on Students’ Unions recruitment websites, so the main requirement from the client was to ensure that the site visitor was able to access the information relevant to their role quickly and easily. This meant a well designed navigation system, related page links and effective search facilities.

The font was chosen so that the website could give its message quickly and without fuss.

Responsive

The client identified audience for the website is technology aware, and as likely to be accessing the site from a device as from a laptop.
 
Chilli Designs sites are responsive, so are able to reconfigure to ensure that they look great no matter what device accesses them.
