‘Appy days! CV-Library’s mobile app updates result in huge hike in candidate registrations

The UK’s leading independent job board, CV-Library, is constantly making updates to its mobile job search app, with its latest feature enabling candidates to search and apply for jobs, even when they don’t have an internet connection.

The change has been made to improve the user journey and increase applications from candidates that live in areas of poor connectivity, or are commuting via the tube. This is now available to candidates using Android devices and is due for release on iOS this month.

As a result, the amount of candidates registering on CV-Library through its app jumped by a huge 24% last month, when comparing year-on-year data.

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

“We understand that most job hunters use their mobile to search and apply for jobs and our dedicated UX team are working extremely hard to make the journey as seamless as possible for users.”

Other upcoming features include fingerprint ID login, making it quicker, easier and more secure for job hunters to apply for jobs on the go.

Key stats around CV-Library’s mobile app

  • Average of 3 applications per user
  • UK's top rated job search app
  • 4.3million job searches per month

Biggins continues:

“We’re constantly developing our offering and are focussing heavily on our mobile app right now. In fact, we’ve now added messaging about our mobile app to hundreds of our outdoor advertising sites, helping to boost candidate registrations and applications for our clients’ jobs.”
