AIMGroup talks about the benefits of Not a CV

AimGroup, Business Intelligence for Marketplace and Classifieds, talk to Geoff Sims, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Not a CV.

A new interactive recruitment platform, Not a CV, has launched in the U.K. aimed at helping employers make the right choice.

The machine technology-enabled digital platform incorporates a free psychometric and curated timeline for each candidate, which, Not a CV says, allows employers to get a wider ‘whole person’ view of the candidate. The platform connects with potential candidates in real time to speed up the recruitment process and gives employers an option to access interview questions that are realistically linked to the specific role and shortlisted candidates.

The platform offers recruiters a no engagement, no fee deal based on connecting candidates who ‘like’ the role to the employer who can then ‘like back or reject’. Employers follow five steps to use the platform:-

  • Employer chooses the skills required
  • Attach the psychometric profile for the role/opportunity
  • Candidates who match the role can choose to use one of their limited ‘likes’ with the employer’s opportunity
  • Employers like back or reject. They only pay for ‘mutual likes’ – this reveals the candidates full digital profile including evidence of their work, community activities, skills, psychometrics, qualifications and work history
  • Start interacting with shortlisted candidates – arrange interview / next steps

“Not a CV is different to anything out there. Job seekers no longer need to chase individual employers or recruitment agencies by email with copies of their CV,” said Geoff Sims, Not a CV MD.

“For employers, the platform helps them clarify what they are looking for and allows them to achieve a better cultural fit by connecting them with candidates who are aligned to their purpose.”

“CVs are so tedious to trawl through and do not give you a multi-dimensional view of the candidate’s personality, skills and achievements, which means many great candidates end up getting missed. Not a CV offers candidates the chance to create a digital profile that is far more relevant in this digital world.”

Sims said that the platform could save employers money because with the psychometric test, it’s more likely they will get the right fit for the job, reducing the number of candidates who end up leaving the role after a few months.

“The matching process is based purely on suitability for the role and organisation removing a layer of unconscious bias which can negatively affect hiring decisions,” Sims said.
