Just the job for the Arts Council
“We’re delighted with our website and the ever-improving numbers.”
Part of Arts Council England, Arts Jobs and Arts News brings all the latest news and opportunities to the arts sector.
Arts Jobs provides adverts for a range of job opportunities within the art and culture sector and Arts News is used to announce arts-related events, news and call-outs for exhibitions. These are all co-located one one lively website with an email list service to deliver the news direct to in-boxes.
Arts Jobs is a popular website and mailing list service for Arts Council England that promotes jobs, opportunities, and news in the arts community. All content is user generated, by everyone from world-renowned galleries through to individual artists.
We redesigned the website to be simple-to-navigate, to scale to bursts of traffic and be fully responsive to ensure a first-class user experience no matter which device visitors are using. We also integrated a heavyweight email system, capable of sending out 100,000 HTML emails per week. All of this
Built in open source Typo3, we wanted to create a simple to use user generated content tool that enables jobs to be posted, moderation of those roles and then for the new postings to be automatically sent to candidates based on their preferences. For this to work seamlessly, we opted for Amazon Web Services hosting bundled with their email delivery service.
"Here’s what the Arts Council say: “Since we relaunched the website, visitors have increased exponentially, page visits have improved and the average visit duration has lengthened.”
That’s not all: “Arts Jobs has become the number one online jobs community for the arts.”
