Need a recruiter website? This blog will run you through how to launch your very own site in under 5 minutes.

On Your Marks, Get Set, Build A Website!

It is possible to build a Freelance Recruiter Website in under 5 minutes!

When you’ve made the decision that you’re going to become a freelance recruiter, you will soon realise that there’s a long list of tasks that you will have to tick off before you get started.

For example, you will need to:

  • Register a company
  • Open a bank account
  • Set up a database
  • Pay for accounting software
  • Build a website

The list goes on!

I think in the future I will write a mini-series that’s a step-by-step guide to getting started as a freelance recruiter and cover all the things you need to do, to get up and running.

However, today I’m going to run you through how you can build a fully personalised recruiter website, in under 5 minutes and without paying a penny.

I know it’s a big claim but stick with me here.

What Tools Will I Need?

To get your recruitment website up and running you will only need 1 tool and to be honest with you this blog is also about to turn into a bit of self-promotion.

The one tool you will need is the ‘Giig Hire Free Website Builder’.

Giig is an all-in-one platform for freelance recruiters, it has a free forever version that you can make use of without limitation. There’s no trial period and no restriction on how much data you can store.

Today’s blog will focus on the free website builder and how you can launch a website in 5 minutes.

However, if you’d like to read more about some of the other tools available on the platform, I will leave the link here for you.

How do you launch the site?

So let’s bring our attention back to the focus of the blog…

Creating a website in under 5 minutes!

I know what you’re thinking,

“Get to the good stuff and show me how this is possible”

So without further ado, I will show you how you get the website created in 30 seconds.

Attached below is a video where I run you through how quick and easy it is to create a website once you have signed into the Giig Hire platform.

As you can see in the video, we have created 3 different templates for you to use to get up and running. The templates were created to give you an insight into what is possible with the builder and give you a helping hand in getting started.

Once you have launched the site you will then need to spend some time personalising the template so that the website fits with your company brand.

What Customisations Can I Make?

In sales, no matter what you’re doing whether it’s a cold e-mail outreach or building a website you have to remember:

“customisation is key”

It’s one thing to launch a website using one of our free templates but if you don’t spend the time to edit and adjust it then you will have a blanket page that doesn’t showcase your brand or personality.

Recruitment is a relationship-driven industry where it’s important to let your personality shine through!

If you can’t showcase what makes you unique then you will really struggle to cut through the noise in what is an already congested market.

The recruitment industry is already overcrowded and I only see it getting busier, which is why it’s important to stand out.

I have created a video that’s 5 minutes in length to show you a demo of exactly what you can do to edit and adjust your recruitment website after launching one of the templates.

For those of you that don’t want to sit through the video, the customisations you can make are:

  • Headers
  • Text
  • Buttons
  • Images
  • Calls To Action (CTA)
  • Videos
  • Cards
  • Spacers

Now I would run through each of these in detail but to be honest I think it would get boring pretty quick.

If you’re interested in seeing them in detail, you should definitely watch the demo video.


There is one customisation that I will run you through quickly, which I think will be pretty powerful.

I mentioned at the start of this section that customisation is key and letting your personality shine through is important which is why I’d like to draw your attention to the fact that you can add video to your website.

In today’s market creating content is your currency!!

More than ever people want to consume content on a topic rather than receive a cold call from someone.

In the same way that you’re reading this very blog right now…

There’s your evidence.

Now when you first start recruiting it’s natural that you’re going to have to do the manual outreach, the cold calls and cold e-mails. It’s not pretty but it has to be done.

Whilst in the background you should definitely be creating content that showcases who you are and how you can help.

We want to support you in taking this first step into content creation by allowing you to have a video front and centre at the top of your website.

Let me show you an image of what it looks like.

Most recruitment websites in today’s market are bland, they all churn out the same standardised text explaining how they put the candidate’s and client’s needs first, to make a great recruitment experience.

Now don’t get me wrong, putting the candidates and clients first is important, but with everyone saying the same thing your website won’t stand out if you take that approach.

Adding a video to the top of your website gives you the chance to be different and stand out from the crowd and the best part is that it’s really simple and can be set up in 3 steps:

Step 1 — Record your video

Step 2 — Upload your video to YouTube

Step 3 — Copy and paste your YouTube link into your Giig website

And there you have it!

A personalised video, that showcases your personality and allows clients to watch it in their own time.

Now I know for some people recording a video can be a cringe-worthy activity.

I find it cringy myself.

However, when you start to see the impact it can have on your website traffic and business growth, you will be pleased that you took the plunge.

So there you have it, a free and easy way to build a recruitment website in under 5 minutes.

I told you to stick with me,

I hope you’ve found this content useful and hopefully, it will assist you in getting your first recruitment website up and running.

For those of you that do want to jump over to the site, I will leave another link here for the All-In-One Giig Hire platform.

So you can take a look at the other tools available to you.
