New responsive design for the Oxford Careers website

Student meeting Careers AdvisorWe have been working with the team at the University of Oxford Careers Service for a few years now; helping them ensure that their website meets the needs of the students, alumni and recruiters who use it.

Last year, the team noticed that more and more people were becoming interested in accessing the site on smartphones and tablet computers. They also felt that the site wasn’t really making the most of blogging or social media tools, and that the design and structure of the site could be improved.

So we started working on a website redesign project with the team in Oxford and our lovely designers at Design By Day in Salford. Our main objectives were to:

  • Redesign the site and ensure that it worked on all devices (computers, tablets and smartphones)
  • Move the site into WordPress and make use of the free tools for blogging and social media
  • Create a more usable main menu for the site, to enable one-click access to key content

The site went live earlier this week and it’s going down really well with users.

We think it looks great, but don’t take our word for it, have a look yourself: http://www.careers.ox.ac.uk
