Simon Parry worked as a consultant and information architect on this Project led by Prospect to develop an App for apprentices and would be apprentices.
The App features advice, ranging for the how to become a App to your employment rights once you are employed. However, the unique selling point of the App was the ability to search both the main sources – the National Apprenticeship Service & Not Going To Uni – for Apprenticeship vacancies in the UK, making it the most comprehensive apprenticeship job search available.
Simon worked on the project throughout, from carrying out the initial surveys that helped formed the requirements to writing the full specifications, running the tender process, testing and publishing the App. Simon used his search engine optimisation knowledge to provide ‘App store optimisation’, ensuring that the App appears at the top of the Google Play and Apple App store for the relevant searches.
