I want to build a website for a small (3 user) recruitment agency which will link into an internal client & recruitment database system, providing a "seamless" link to the outside world.
The key is for the entire platform to be web-based, allowing it to be rolled-out at very short notice to new branches or users via Web-deployment.
Candidates can register via the website, upload their cv and manage their own personal details (ie availability, type of job required etc)
Agency staff can then browse applicants by searching on a central skills register that the candidates themselves define.
The agency staff will be able to add client information to a client database, and log any activites (calls, meetings, cv's sent etc) against these clients.
Any new jobs will also be registered against these clients.
The system will collate these jobs and send a daily email personalised summary to all applicants, personalised with the specific jobs which support their search criteria.
A "housekeeping" function will send an email to applicants to invite them to click on the link to update or remove their details once their details have lapsed out of date (ie by 2 months).
It may be that I am trying to do too much and in fact this is two projects presented as one but advice is welcome! Of course if somebody can build the whole thing from scratch then fantastic!
The above is quite a comprehensive list. I think for professional executives to take the site seriously it would have to make good use of up-to-date techniques and standards, as well as having quite an "upmarket" uproach to the look and feel.
Thank you for reading this far and I hope that you can help me.
