Professional services, professional website

Akira created a website that reflected the far-reaching search capabilities of Verriez in seeking out the best national and international candidates for high level and executive positions.

High prominence was given to the company blog/news feed on the home page to keep both clients and candidates informed of new developments. Text sliders were used to include highlight key areas of expertise, such as Specialists in finance and accounting executive search, without cluttering the home page design too much. This was complemented by a straightforward back-end CMS system so Verriez could update their Current Searches page quickly and easily.

Responsive, mobile-friendly design

With the majority of both candidates and clients being heavy users of mobile touch-screen technology, Akira Studio designed a fully responsive website that would automatically reformat according to the device and being used. This enables professionals and business people using a wide range of mobile devices, from smartphones to iPads and Blackberrys, to access the website while out and about, away from the prying eyes of their current boss!

SEO keyword research and copywriting

SEO research established the key phrases both prospective clients and candidates were typing into search engines to find executive search recruitment services.  The research results were then gently incorporated into new on-page text and meta tags, created by our copywriter Kirsty after in-depth discussions over Skype with director Paul Verriez in London Canada, Kirsty near London UK and Paul's colleague Tara in yet another office!
