Do you know the CV is more than 500 years old?
It’s thought Leonardo da Vinci penned the first known professional resume back in 1482, listing his skills, his experience and his ideas for invention.
But is this still the best way for us to assess potential talent? Since then, the CV has changed, spread rapidly and developed into a primary recruitment tool with the primary function still remaining: to secure an interview. CVs were useful when you only got around 20 applicants, but in today’s technologically advanced world where online job applications have dramatically increased the volume of candidates is it still the right tool to be using when there are thousands of job seekers out there?

Hiring off the back of a great CV does not guarantee a successful hire
A great CV does not guarantee someone can do the job. Neither does poaching ‘experienced’ and costly staff from competitors. Consequently, this has led employers to find new ways to recruit and retain candidates successfully. A successful hire is more likely to result in the employee making a valid contribution towards business growth.
To enable an employee to contribute towards business growth requires experience and knowledge, both of which are acquired over time. Resulting in organisations now using a range of proven techniques and expertise to recruit, develop and retain their talent.
Raw Talent are passionate about challenging the norms of recruitment with the strong held belief that hiring off the back of a CV is wrong. We assess candidates on their ability, behavior and competencies for the best fit and investment for our partners.
