CV-Library Named ‘Best Online Recruitment Solution Provider’


CV-Library, the UK’s leading independent job board, has been awarded the ‘Best Online Recruitment Solution Provider’ accolade at the 2016 Technology Innovator Awards.

The awards, which are ran by Corporate Vision, celebrate and reward the individuals, departments and firms behind the ground-breaking developments that change the way we do business for the better.

Katherine Spice, IT Director at CV-Library, comments:

“It’s fantastic to be recognised in Corporate Vision’s awards. We have seen technology transform the recruitment process over the past decade and being at the forefront of that is something I am immensely proud of. We’re continually looking at ways to enhance our platform for both recruiters and candidates, and our technical work very hard to help us stay ahead in what is now a very competitive market.”

These wins are a nod to what has so far been a very successful year for CV-Library, with the UK’s leading online job board breaking record after record in terms of new account growth, revenue and the size of their CV database, which now stands at an outstanding 10.2 million.

Lee Biggins, Founder and Managing Director of CV-Library, adds:

“Being recognised is a real achievement for us at CV-Library. The past year has been one of exceptional growth and its awards like these which allow us to take a step back and appreciate firsthand just how great the work is that we are doing.”

The category of ‘Best Online Recruitment Solution Provider’ was newly created for 2016.

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.
