Seeking a Web Developer to Help With Creating A Job (employment) Website
We require an experienced developer to build our website.
The website is an employment website for both those wishing to list jobs available and those wishing to list themselves as potential employees
A brief description of the website:
We want to split the usage of this website into two primary groups: employees and employers.
Through a subscription, employers will be able to use this website to create a searchable profile of their company and their job ads.
Similarly, employees will also be able to use the site to upload a profile and apply to job ads.
To build a profile, both groups will have a certain template that will ask for relevant information. For instance, employers will have to answer what industry the company is in, where the office(s) are located, what role their searching to fill, what hours/days/skills they require, whether they will accept unsolicited job applications, etc.
For employees, their profile may be slightly more detailed and the template will ask for what area they live in, the radius they would like to work in, days/hours they’re looking to work, key skills, education, strengths, and so on.
All of these answers will also serve as keywords that website visitors can search by. Users will also have the ability to upload a picture, resume and limited portfolio.
Any visitor to the website will be able to view an employee or employer profile, but in order to gain access to the relevant contact information, the visitor must pay a one-time fee or have a subscription. So each profile must be two-fold: the initial limited profile and the full profile which is only accessible after paying a fee.
The website will also have a matching service that will search the profiles and match employees with employers based on the information they have provided. The website will generate weekly automated emails that will notify subscribers of relevant matches based on their last search or profile information.
Only paying subscribers will be able to get details to contact employees or employers. We would, however, like to be able to offer free listings to charities and students seeking work experience.
We would like most of the website to be a CMS system so we can modify profile templates, keywords, category lists and so on. Also, we would like the ability to delete inappropriate material/profiles.
The system needs to be able to take online payments via credit card or paypal (or similar).
We would also like an inbuilt crm solutions – perhaps linked to a current web-based product – to be able to contact subscribers regularly with both relevant information and with specific jobs list pertinent to either the jobs available or the employees available.
Once the website has been designed and made live, we are also considering creating a related iPhone application or possible Facebook application so experience in developing either of these would be a bonus.
Please submit your proposal as well as your previous job experiences and portfolio. As this is only a brief explanation of the website we would like to develop, full specifications will be discussed with serious candidates.
