CV-Library Named Best Job Board


CV-Library, the UK’s leading job board, is thrilled to announce that it was crowned at last night’s National Online Recruitment Awards 2015, a prestigious recruitment award which is recognised on a national scale. Often seen as the industry’s flagship award, the UK’s largest job site came out on top of its category ‘Best Generalist Job Board’, after fending off tough competition from other national job boards, some with a global presence.

The award, sponsored by Actonomy, recognises CV-Library as the largest and most popular recruitment site in the UK, as well highlighting the commitment made by the job board to continuous development. The job site, which now holds a candidate database with over 9.4 million CVs and benefits from 3.5 million monthly unique users, is rapidly expanding and shows no signs of slowing down.

The finalists in the award category, included:

  • CV Library Ltd
  • Monster
  • Reed
  • Indeed
  • Jobsite

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, comments:

“It’s an absolute honour to be named as the Best Job Board in the UK at last night’s awards. We are continuously investing in the business to make sure that our candidates and clients have a simple, smooth and enjoyable experience, and it’s wonderful that this has been recognised.

CV-Library is one of the UK’s largest online job sites, with the UK’s biggest database of over 12m CVs. The company was founded in 2000 as a response to Lee’s identification of a market niche. As a young carpet fitter at the time struggling to find work, Lee saw a need for an easy-to-use job board benefiting both job hunters and recruiters. With a £9k loan and help from a web developer, the CV-Library website was built. Lee’s raw passion and hands-on marketing strategies lifted the business off the ground and it is this that continues to push his company to new heights.

The business is now one of the fastest growing websites in the country. The team is expanding rapidly, now employing over 200 staff. It has also launched sister website, Resume Library, in the US, where the company is set to expand and take the brand global over the coming years. Lee puts the reason for his success down to working incredibly hard, loving what he does and a strong desire to make the business the best it can be.

Lee has received over 50 awards and accolades to date and was last year recognised as Entrepreneur of the Year. In April 2015 CV-Library was also ranked as number 49 in the Sunday Times Profit Track 100.
