The Probation Bulletin remains the chief vehicle for professional recruitment within the Probation Service and carries details of virtually all available job vacancies in the field. Novamedia created this website to replace a system which involved uploading large pdfs of job advertisements. The new site allows advertisers to submit adverts online whilst a back-end admin module allows staff to quickly approve and modify them.
The Probation Bulletin website is also fully responsive, meaning it works just as well on mobiles and tablets as it does on a tradtional computer screen. This is useful for jobseekers who may be looking for jobs whilst on the move and who can quickly respond to email alerts when new jobs are added.
Creating this website also involved setting up a reliable system which emails jobseekers new vacancies and courses when they're added to the site. The system we chose for this was Mandrill and this is fully integrated into the Probation Bulletin's back-end functionality.
