Synopsis:When you are asked to develop a recruitment microsite for a major High Street fashion franchise, you never say no. When asked to develop three, it's stuff of what dreams are made of!

As part of a massive recruitment drive to find replenishers and store managers over the seasonal periods, Selfridges asked a website designing company to develop three recruitment microsites, all running for set periods to coincide with major press advertising campaigns.

We designed, developed and deployed three sites under various titles, these being:

• No Flakes
• Selfridges Managers
• Join Selfridges

Now offline, these three sites enjoyed an overwhleming response, with candidate numbers reaching close to 10,000 - yes, 10,000!!! A website designing company housed the sites on a single Windows 2003 dedicated server to handle the extreme bandwidth usage and to ensure the uptime was maximised for these mission critical websites.

Each featured an ASP.NET driven MS SQL database admin system, allowing the client to oversee who had applied and filter candidates by work permit, gender, eligibility, experience, job applied for, location... in fact, so much that there's too much to list. All three sites were extremely well received and more are planned for the future.
