Personal Bests across All Metrics for CV-Library

Personal Bests across All Metrics for CV-Library

CV-Library strikes personal bests across all metrics, receiving over one million job applications, 208,728 CV registrations (140,055 new CVs) and 2.2 million unique visitors in October alone a great achievement for the independent job board.

More candidates than ever are using the job board to search and apply to the 60,000 jobs they advertise on behalf of recruiters and employers from across the UK. These findings follow the recent headlines from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) stating that the jobless rate has in fact fallen, a telling sign that the economy is starting to recover from the recession.

Lee Biggins, Managing Director of CV-Library: “It appears that job seekers are becoming savvier to the world of online recruitment and the ease of applying directly to their ideal jobs from one place is very appealing. The ONS confirmed last month that the jobless rate is down by 7.9% and I hope that sites such as ours are one of the principal factors in supporting candidates from across the UK on their job hunt.

“The stats themselves are an astonishing achievement for CV-Library and with more candidates registering with us month on month we’re also seeing a steady increase in jobs being posted. With recruitment slowly starting to increase again it’s great to see the unemployment rate improving.”

In a recent report from one of the UK’s biggest multiple job posting services, CV-Library’s application to job ratio was 7.2% higher than the market performance index, which is made up of the UK’s top ten job sites.

CV-Library has improved many of their internal features during 2012 which has led to the increase in job applications. Their Jobs by Email service is used by 61% of their entire database of 5.2 million candidates and over 150,000 job applications were made via this service during October.

The earlier launch of their mobile site and apps has also led to an incredible rise in traffic with 16% of all web traffic coming from a mobile device. Combined with their SEO efforts and improvements in online ranking CV-Library is set to break these records again in the New Year.

“The size of our CV database has always been one of our strongest selling points but with phenomenal job application stats as well we want to demonstrate to recruiters that we have the quantity and the quality of candidates” Biggins adds.

CV-Library’s brand exposure is also greater than ever with offline marketing campaigns running throughout 2012, including advertising on the TV, in leading gym chains, at popular commuter train stations and throughout the London Underground.

Recruitment was one of the most unstable sectors during the recession. For an independent company, reliant on employers, to come out the other side stronger than ever is a fantastic feat.
