Warrington, United Kingdom (4th April, 2013) – Vid-CV, a platform which allows job applicants to create videos to complement their CV, has launched an innovative new service for recruitment agencies, employers and candidates.
Vid-CV has been designed to add a new dimension to the recruitment sector, offering job applicants the opportunity to create a video as part of their CV. These videos will help recruiters and their clients to find the strongest candidates for their roles on a more consistent basis; clients taking up the Vid-CV platform will divert their candidates to a fully-branded landing page where they are guided through every step of the process. The end result is a branded CV covering their candidate.
The finished video CVs can be viewed on smartphones, tablets and computers, allowing recruiters and employers to access candidates’ videos wherever they are. Vid-CVs are not looking to replace the traditional CV, but to enhance them.
Chris Rowson, Managing Director of Vid-CV, said: “Vid-CV is a natural evolution to the traditional recruitment process, with the widespread social use of video content. The Vid-CVs will allow recruiters to appraise key skills and passion for a role that the written CV will never achieve. However, the content still complements the CV document, which still has a vital role to play in the selection process.”

Vid-CV allows candidates to sell themselves through video presentations and their own voice rather than relying solely on the traditional written CV. Recruitment agencies and businesses can use this platform to gain a greater depth of familiarity with candidates, and discover more of an individual’s characteristics before the interview stage.
