A fresh approach to online classifieds

When International News & Media approached us back in 2009 they wanted to build on the success of their existing online classified offerings by launching an online recruitment platform which would challenge the market leaders and boost revenue from digital outlets.

We tackled the project, like many others, by getting everyone in a room at the same time to delve into the business objectives and create that shared understanding of the problem at hand. The solution was design led with our team iterating over concepts and wireframes with the nijobfinder team until we arrived at an effective creative.

The project dealt with large amounts of data, all arriving from various sources. We engineered a solution built upon a custom PHP development framework designed to handle huge amounts of incoming and outgoing data through multiple channels.

We knew, through our experience in developing online classified portals, that one of the major roadblocks to success could be aggregating data and feeding it into the system. We developed a bespoke piece of software for recruitment agencies which could be integrated with their existing systems to provide a link to nijobfinder. With a minimum amount of disruption we created a cost effective solution to the problem providing total control over this key integration.

Award Winning

The success of nijobfinder.co.uk was recognised by the industry on two separate occasions with the popular recruitment portal picking up NORA awards for best regional recruitment website in 2012 and 2013.


We built upon this success by developing an iPhone app and responsive website to compliment the platform thereby increasing the audience reach with more touch points for potential users. We also integrated an effective advertising platform, allowing INM to maximise revenue whilst providing a genuinely useful service to jobseekers in Northern Ireland.
