CV-Library acquires programmatic platform Brilliant Jobs
CV-Library has officially acquired Brilliant Jobs, a platform that uses the latest AI and programmatic technology to efficiently connect candidates with employers. The acquisition was part of a strategic move to own and integrate a leading programmatic product within its existing technology stack and to expand the organisation’s product offering.
The move is part of the CV-Library Group’s wider plans to deliver a global programmatic job advertising solution across its existing and new territories. Whilst CV-Library in the UK continues to invest and deliver traditional job posting products, it will offer clients and partners the option to buy, advertise and optimise their job adverts based on performance.
This will be led through CV-Library’s U.S. based business, Resume-Library, which is one of the fastest growing job boards in North America, as well as providing a springboard for further international expansion over the next 12 months.
CV-Library have earmarked over $9m for acquisitions and platform transformations over the next 2 years and the first stage, integrating Brilliant Jobs, is due to be complete and available to the market in late October 2022.
Lee Biggins, Founder and CEO of CV-Library and Resume-Library said: “This acquisition provides us with the technology to bring a true programmatic solution to the market, with a product mix that suits every hiring model. I am personally very excited about this step forward in our vision to become a leading job board globally, as well as the possibilities it brings for us as a modern technology business.”
The acquisition also sees the formulation of an impressive new team at CV-Library, led by Andrea Olivari, Global Partnerships Director, with Chee Ho Wan, founder of Brilliant Jobs, joining as Head of Campaign Delivery.
