Reed CV Database Search

Recruitment Technology
At Flat Fee Recruiter, we are really excited to be the first fixed fee recruiter to partner the Reed CV database search!  This is aimed to bolster your direct hiring strategy and target the passive job seekers (candidates who may not be actively applying for jobs). We already have some great results from clients who have been testing it.  So why not Be Savvy and get access to the top talent before the recruitment agencies or your competition.

What is it all about?

As you would expect from Flat Fee Recruiter, we have kept it as simple and cost-effective as possible with no strings attached.  We will do most of the legwork for you like setting up your initial Boolean search criteria and alerts, scour the results for the best candidates and then get in touch and tell them all the good stuff about your job.  It's basically what a recruitment agency is supposed to do, without the cost!


  1. Reed is one of the biggest and the most well-known job boards in the market
  2. Every month a quarter of a million job seekers upload their CV to the reed database
  3. 37% of CV's are completely unique to Reed, which means that you won't find them on any other job board
  4. They do not like old data!  Reed is rigorous in cleaning and removing old candidates (unlike many of their competitors) which means that a higher than average percentage of candidates will be interested in talking to you

How does it work?

There are just 5 simple steps to reach out to a wider candidate base:
  1. Let us know which job role you want to search CV's for
  2. We will set up a CV search specifically for the job (we only want candidates who have registered with the site within the last 3 months)
  3. Over the course of your advert campaign, we will earmark the best candidates and then filter them into the top 10, giving you a screenshot of their basic details.
  4. We will download these CV's and contact the candidates on your behalf explaining all the benefits of your vacancy
  5. When we have a positive response from an applicant, we will send you and the candidate an email (with their CV) so you can take it on from there.
And... We can also set up CV alerts for you:  If a new job seeker registers their CV (based on the criteria you have set), you will get an email alert which means that you can tell us to download their CV and contact them immediately (before anyone else)!
