Comet Support

Responded to a call for a colleague support website to be set up following Comet going into administration in 2012 by quickly building a site. Continued to maintain and update the site as required.

The Project Brief

When Comet Group Ltd went into administration in late 2012 much of the web hosting and infrastructure was shut down. As colleagues left the business there was no way to communicate easily with them, or help them with training and job support after they had left.

The administrator and management team required a website setting up very quickly in order to communicate employment help and support, as well as publicising job fairs and vacancies.

Client



A former electrical retail chain trading in the UK. The company sold consumer electronics and white goods, along with related products and services.

The Solution

Our proposal was to use existing infrastructure that was low cost and could be maintained. Hosting and a domain existed to do this, however there was no suitable website or CMS platform in existence.

We created a WordPress website that fitted the required brief, prepared the initial site content with the HR team and launched the site with a colleague support helpline. This was all completed within an intensive 72 hour period.

The site had a simple to use CMS template that allowed new jobs, support information or help posts to be uploaded, plus a constantly updated table of recruitment adverts and job fairs. The site had basic Google analytics so that its usage and usefulness could be tracked.

The Results

The site proved an extremely useful resource for former Comet employees, receiving steady traffic for much longer than expected.

We ran and supported the website until the end of April 2013, during which time hundreds of job adverts were published, as well as significant training and employment support opportunities.

What Our Client Said

“When Comet went into administration we needed a website created quickly that could communicate the redundancy process and help ex-colleagues find jobs. Insite Web turned this around amazingly quickly and put a process in place to update content easily and then ran this for the next 4 months”
