One of the best things about life at Handle Recruitment is the fact we get to work with such a fantastic variety of companies operating in some really cutting edge sectors. We also love to keep on top of what our favourite employers are doing and last week, a very special client, the Official Charts Company, launched its new identity and a completely redesigned consumer facing website.

The new identity combines two vibrantly coloured arrows which overlap to create a secret “1” representing, of course, the most important number in the music charts. And you’ll be seeing a lot more of it as the company plans to roll the “1” icon out as a kitemark of data quality and accuracy.

Additionally, the relaunch of – on an all new digital platform - showcases the very best of current charts music – as well as some fantastic retro legends.

It’s described as a buzzing hub for music fans who will able to search the Official Singles and Albums Charts archive on every page of the site, and interact with other music lovers through its social media and community features. If that isn't enough, the site also features news, video interviews, current and retrospective features, artist chart profiles, galleries and competitions.

We think the new website is amazing, but don’t just take our word for it! Go and have a look yourself – we’re sure you’ll be as hooked as we are in no time.
