The UK’s leading independent job site, CV-Library, has been named a UK National Champion in The RSM Entrepreneur of the Year Award category at The European Business Awards; Europe’s largest business competition set up to celebrate business excellence and best practice in the European business community.
The Awards, now in its 10th year, is supported by business leaders, academics and political representatives from across Europe, and this year engaged with over 33,000 businesses from 34 countries. CV-Library has been chosen after the first phase of judging by an independent panel, having been evaluated on its innovation, ethics and success and will now go through to the second stage of the competition.
Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library comments:
“We’re very proud to be selected to represent the United Kingdom as a National Champion. The European Business Awards is widely recognised as the showcase for Europe’s most dynamic companies and we are proud to be recognised at this level. It’s been an exciting year here at CV-Library and we are working hard to expand and develop every aspect of the business. As a result we have grown consistently by 40% or more year-on-year for the last three years, aiding our regional and international expansion.”
As a National Champion, CV-Library will go on to compete in the next phase of the competition, which will see the company submitting a presentation video, telling the organisation’s unique story and explaining the business’ success. The independent judges will award the best of this group the ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status in The RSM Entrepreneur of the Year category and the selected companies will then go on to the Gala Final in 2017.
Separately, in a two stage public vote, the videos will be hosted on the European Business Awards website, and the company who receives the most votes in their country will become the ‘National Public Champion’.
“The next stage of events, where we’ll be judged on our video submission and public vote, should be particularly exciting and whatever the result is, I’m very proud that our organisation has come so far in these prestigious awards. I’m looking forward to seeing what the next 12 months has in store for us, and awards like these continue to motivate me to take my business to new heights.”
The Awards’ core purpose is to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe.
