Freelance CV services - 12/2001

., the stand-alone website for the media industry from the Guardian Unlimited network, now provides a Freelance CV service to boost its online recruitment offering. Powered by London-based online recruitment specialists Interbase UK, Freelance CV Services now provides three highly interactive databases of clients available to work in TV and Film production, Journalism and Advertising/PR. Freelance CV Services works on the business model of charging each freelance a small monthly or annual fee, but allowing the employer free access to the database.

Interbase UK currently owns and operates the British television industry-standard online talent-pool, and similar sites in the USA, Canada, Spain, France, Germany, Ireland, South Africa, India, Australia, Argentina, Chile and Mexico. In total, Interbase promotes the professional details and diary availability of over 40,000 tv and film production people.

Interbase UK director Moray Coulter said, ìWe were keen to apply our television industry success to other professional areas, and have already forged ahead in Journalism, Advertising/PR and Local Government, but we are thrilled to work with a blue-chip organisation like Guardian Newspapers Ltd. This is a very powerful combination - we have both specialist software and a business model proved over two years on the job, and must be the most popular daily online destination for Britainís media community. We expect that Freelance CV Services will become the central point of information for those creative industries within a very short period of time.î
