Suffolk County Council
App Design and Development
Suffolk County Council approached us to design and build an app to enable users to search for apprenticeships, traineeships and jobs in Suffolk. Aimed at providing support from school through to early 20’s, the app offers support and guidance, helping young people towards their future career.
An app was built on the Titanium framework; enabling a quickly scaled app for both iOS and Android users. The app integrates with a bespoke CRM database, enabling Suffolk County Council the ability to add and update data and service the user accounts. 3rd party integration with ICanBeA, provides the user with more detailed Job Profile information, helping to aide making career choices. A CV Builder, designed and built on the Suffolk County Council “The Source” site, was modified and added to the app so users could create and upload a copy of their CV.
