The SignedUp platform is powering a new web presence and membership management system for the Isle of Man Construction Federation (IOMCF).
The IOMCF administers the Isle of Man Government’s List of Approved Contractors through the Manx Accredited Construction Contractors Scheme (MACCS). In this role, the IOMCF reviews applications and maintains a list of the Island’s accredited construction companies.
Previously known as the Employers Federation, PDMS worked with the IOMCF to create a new brand for the renamed organisation. This included creating a new website www.iomcf.im, designed and built by PDMS’ design and development teams, with a fresh new look and online membership directory. Residents of the Isle of Man can use the website to find quality local companies and get in touch, confident that they will find the right tradesman for their projects.
In addition to needing a new updated web presence, the IOMCF were also looking for a better way to manage their membership and to help promote job vacancies and apprenticeship opportunities in the construction industry. PDMS were able to provide a complete end to end service – implementing their Employed platform for membership management and to provide a jobs feed for the home page and a great looking website to provide information and advice not only to members but also the wider public. PDMS’ in-house design team also came up with a new logo and branding as part of the project!
The membership management of the IOMCF is now powered by employed.im – a careers and employability portal featuring the Island’s latest job and placement opportunities, and a range of other services and administration tools for employers and organisations. By using employed.im, the IOMCF has been able to reduce administration time and members can now take control of their own company details directly and in real time. In addition to providing an online membership directory, the IOMCF website now features specialist job opportunities on the Island through a dedicated industry feed, provided through employed.im. IOMCF members now have a single, central point where they can quickly and easily maintain their profiles, advertise and find available job vacancies.
Steve Woodward, Secretary of the IOMCF Group, comments; “The new website is a great new resource for both members of the Construction Federation and anybody on the Island looking for a contractor. In addition to a fresh new look, we’ve been able to tap into the benefits of using employed.im to manage our membership – giving us more time to focus on providing advice and guidance.“
Future developments plans for the IOMCF website include client testimonials and business ratings so individuals can see first-hand accounts of previous clients and projects completed.
