UK Employment Service

National

 

Jobpoints are part of the UK Department of Work and Pensions: Jobcentre Plus - one of the world’s largest government employment services.  Big Bad Wolf Design worked with EDS to deliver a new kiosk based system which would allow users to access all available jobs via a simple touch screen interface.

The Jobpoint system is one of the largest integrated network of kiosks in the world.  It has also become a blueprint for public employment service systems internationally.  It has helped Jobcentre Plus greatly to improve its service and increase satisfaction amongst job seekers and employers. 

The original Employment Service was rebranded as Jobcentre Plus and I was brought in to advise on the redevelopment of the website and to apply the new corporate identity to the JCP Jobpoint.

The Employment Service kiosk application – JobPoint – was the winner of the “Most Innovative e-business Project” in the UK Computing Awards for Excellence 2001.
