Having worked with Volcanic in a previous role at Pro Recruitment, Josh Jezard, Senior Marketing Executive, knew the value our SaaS recruitment website platform would deliver. So after joining MedGen in June 2019, and immediately identifying that the website needed an update, he had no hesitation that Volcanic would be the supplier of choice.
(Fun Fact: Josh won our trip to Iceland back in December 2018 for our #OrangeChristmas campaign)
One of the things that really impresses me about Volcanic is the control the SaaS platform gives me to manage my own site. The ability to continually update the site, both on the back-end and front-end, and keep up to date with the changing nature of recruitment is a huge benefit for us. I don't need to rely on developers for minor changes, such as adding buttons to the site, or worry about being quoted an hourly fee for making amends. I can just go in and makes any required changes myself quickly, easily and at no extra cost.
Volcanic were able to offer MedGen a rapid delivery of our best-in-class platform. When asked about how he found the project delivery, Josh says:
The delivery of our website was so quick, about 10 weeks from the initial kick off call to the site going live. I really couldn’t have asked for any more. My Project Manager was brilliant and always at the end of the phone. The design team were great at taking the photoshop mockup I had created and transform it into a design that was 10 times better than I had imagined. Everybody was completely on the ball and really helpful, they anticipated all the needs I was going to have before I actually asked the questions, which took a lot of stress out of the process.
When speaking to Josh, the MedGen website had only been live for two weeks. In this short amount of time, the new website was already delivering astonishing results:
800% increase in candidate registrations via the website in the first two weeks
Increased website traffic
Since going live with our new website we have noticed a massive difference in candidate conversions. In the past two weeks we have had an 800% increase in registrations, traffic is up, and we've had more applications to jobs than ever before.
I can now drive candidates to the website, knowing that not only are they likely to convert but they’re also being captured in a secure environment and I have full visibility of that data.
When asked about commonly used features of the Volcanic platform, Josh said:
The on-page editor is great. I’ve been able to easily build new pages since going live without any additional support. In the old days I would have to go into the back-end of my website, go into the HTML, look for missing tags, and ultimately waste so much time going back and forth. Having that on-page editor is just a godsend for creating content.
