CV-Library Celebrate Industry Record

CV-Library Celebrate Industry Record

Record breaking CVs, job applications and visitors for online job board, CV-Library, results in over 200,000 new candidates registering during January, a new industry record.

January is traditionally a strong month for the recruitment industry but nobody could predict the high volumes of job seeker traffic visiting CV-Library. On one particularly busy day a CV was being registered every 5 seconds and a job application was made every 1.1 seconds. This resulted in 17,933 CV registrations and over 78,900 job applications.

Lee Biggins, Managing Director of CV-Library: “It’s always an exciting time for recruiters and we’re blown away by the increase in job applications and CVs this month. More and more candidates are re-visiting our site and I’d like to think this is because we’re advertising more than ever and we’ve continued to give them what they want from our mobile site and Apps to the 1-Click Apply option.”

Recent Experian Hitwise statistics highlight CV-Library as being the only job board to see an increase in market share during 2012 and their title as the largest UK CV database remains. This can certainly be assigned, in part, to their increased brand awareness following the launch of their offline marketing campaigns in early 2012. They have continued to engage with candidates through their TV adverts, London Underground print work and train station advertising.

“We’re not just bringing new candidates to the site but we’re continuing to re-engage with existing users and attract them back to the relevant jobs that get added to CV-Library every day. We’re advertising up to 68,000 live vacancies at the moment which is more than we had even before the recession.” adds Biggins.

Overall, January brought over 200,000 new CVs to the leading job board and 1.5 million job applications. Job seekers’ dedication was also evident during the Christmas period with a 91% increase in job applications made on Christmas Day compared to 2011.
