Our latest project - 'Roomoo' has gone live today! Visit the website at http://www.roomoo.co.uk/.
The website aims to help 16-25 year olds find work, training opportunities and advice. Hallnet were initially approached by Helena Youth Voice (HYV) to develop a website, guided by HYV members, that would provide the youth of St Helens advice and information on housing and careers. After conducting a series of focus groups, it was soon apparent that all of the HYV members were primarily interested in a way to find employment. Working closely with HYV members through a series of interactive planning sessions, we developed the employment hub you see today.
Roomoo enables 16 - 25 year olds to search a directory of latest job opportunities, find advice, training and events and create an online CV & portfolio to showcase themselves to prospective employers. Employers and organisations have the ability to filter and contact candidates through CV keyword & category searches and on-site messaging system. They can then view matching candidates and contact them through the Roomoo system.
We'll follow up with a more in-depth case study in due course but, for now, we would like to wish HYV the best of luck today at the grand launch in St Helens
