CV-Library reaches a key milestone, with 12 million CVs now on its database

CV-Library has today announced that its online database now boasts 12 million registered CVs, making it the largest CV database with the highest number of registered CVs in the UK.

CV-Library has reigned as the nation's largest CV database for the last four consecutive years and this looks set to continue. The number of British professionals registering with the job site averages at nearly 200,000 each month, resulting in a 10% increase in overall candidate numbers over the past eight months.

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

We’re excited to have reached another impressive milestone at CV-Library and we constantly strive to be the very best job board out there. Our sizeable database of CVs is one of our unique selling points, outweighing all of our major competitors across the UK. We want to ensure that our clients have exclusive access to the latest talent pool, enabling them to find the right candidates for their roles. This new milestone is a testament to the business’ core focus: creating a talent pool of the UK’s most qualified candidates.” 

In addition, CV-Library is continuing to solidify its position as the market leader as it continues to break records when it comes to site visits, job applications and vacancies. The site has already been named the UK’s ‘Best Job Board’ at the 2017 Global Recruiter Awards.

Biggins continues:

“We invest heavily in our candidate attraction methods and strive to give job hunters the best experience we possibly can. Following our successful expansion across the UK in 2016, 2017 has already seen us launch in the Republic of Ireland and I’m excited to see what the rest of the year has in store for us.”

CV-Library was founded by Biggins in 2000 as a response to his own frustrating job search experience, and has grown into the UK’s leading independently owned job board. For further information on CV-Library and to view its extensive database of 12 million job hunters, see
