About the client

Applii is a new job portal website, designed to help students find their ideal apprenticeship, internship of graduate positions.

As a user, you can create your own personalised account to search for your perfect job – from over 5,000 available positions.

Each listing also utilises a coloured status indicator – to immediately tell users if a position can be applied for now, or will be open soon.
