CV's need to be processed and profiled accurately for a recruitment agency to move to the matching stage, making CV profiling a big part of the recruitment process. CV profiling is the only way to put forward the most suitable candidates for the client to interview.

Key Benefits of Automation

Moving to recruitment management software with automated CV profiling delivers a host of benefits to enable you to deal with more candidates efficiently, and ultimately do more business.

Automated CV profiling with Vacancy Lab

Vacancy Lab offers a centralised, comprehensive platform for recruiters in agencies and HR and includes automated CV profiling as a standard feature in a comprehensive solution for managing all aspects of candidate management. Vacancy Lab offers recruitment consultants the chance to take the business to a completely new level with automation.

Customisable search criteria

Highly customisable, Vacancy Lab’s CV Profiling tool scans and picks out pre-determined, key information from a document or PDF dragged into the browser window. These key definitions can be customised for each post to collect specific information, such as name and contact information, experience and qualifications. These key definitions are recorded within an automatically updated database and the CV attributed with those skills. This makes the process of CV profiling faster, provides accurate tracking, eliminates the possibility of human error and adds a new level of automation to the matching process. For specialist recruiters, the system offers a great range of options for customisation in CV profiling. In the service industry, for example, parameters can be set to look for specific areas of experience.

Powerful Search

The powerful search facility enables fast and streamlined matching in several ways and can be customised to look for very specific details. Basic search can be conducted to find candidates to match a vacancy and vacancies to match a candidate. There are further options to find candidates with specific skills or experience and search can be tailored to find posts (or candidates) by location (or distance from candidate) and by salary bracket. With this type of search facility, professional recruiters can spend less time profiling and more time matching their candidates and posts.

Database automation, storage and compliance

A centralised database within the management platform is automatically updated and the sensitive information stored securely according to GDPR guidelines. Compliance with data protection regulations is of paramount importance and agencies can face huge fines for not meeting mandatory requirements. Vacancy Lab assists with GDPR compliance and offers reassurance for agencies handling a large amount of data.

Reporting and billing

Recruiters earn their money from connecting the right candidates with the right employers. Once a successful candidate is found, interviewed and hired, the agency commission is paid. This means that every candidate and every post must be accurately recorded and billed in a timely fashion. Vacancy Lab ensures that reporting and billing can be calculated quickly and accurately via the secure database. Agencies can use KPIs to report on how effectively they are reaching their core business objectives and evaluate success at multiple levels.

Automated candidate tracking

No longer will CV's become lost in a sea of spreadsheets. With automated candidate tracking and email features, your agency can gain an enhanced reputation and never lose a candidate or a CV again.

Hosting anywhere

Whether you’re looking for a cloud-based solution or a hosting option from your own infrastructure, the Vacancy Lab platform is accessible for everyone from anywhere. Data protection is always seamless.

Read the case study

A busy recruitment agency in the south of England approached J&L because they were no longer able to keep track of all the candidates records through their (now extremely large) Excel file. The file was being used in different ways by different staff, meaning that the data contained in wasn’t consistent. In addition, the CVs that they held were in a variety of formats, some were scanned documents, some in Word, some held on email and even a pile of paper CVs in drawer.
