A hugely invaluable aid to modern job hunting, there are a number of CV banks and CV distribution sites in the UK providing free online CV submissions for job seekers. These sites are dedicated CV database repositories and some also have posted job vacancies, enabling to not only post your own CV but also search online for matching vacancies.
Registration is free, allowing you to post your current CV profile. Once registered, your CV is emailed to targeted recruitment agencies and employers who will subsequently contact you with matching vacancies.
CVs are usually held for about six months during which time you can keep your CV current by updating and reposting your profile at any time.
The advantage of this service is immeasurable. Once submitted, your CV profile does the work for you. It can be searched and viewed by relevant employers throughout the country, freeing valuable time for you. You can use the time to focus on other areas of job hunting such as networking and targeting CVs to advertised job vacancies.
If you are concerned about the prospect of being viewed by your current employer, some services will only release your contact details to selective employers of your choice.
Finding these sites is straightforward. Simply type 'CV bank' or 'CV distribution' in the Google UK search engine. Alternatively you can locate these sites in the Yahoo UK directory.
Even after securing employment, you can retain your CV on the database if you are partial towards future approaches from employers with improved job offers.
