Searching for that perfect job role can often feel repetitive, so why not make it easier for yourself by getting in front of recruiters and amplifying your chances of getting hired?

What is CV Search?
CV Search is a free tool on the Training Vacancies platform that increases your visibility to prospective recruiters. The platform allows employers to sift through profiles and search for potential ACA Trainees.

Once the recruiter has found a potential candidate, they can contact them directly and invite them to the interview stages.

When completed, press save and your profile will get instantly uploaded onto the CV Search platform for recruiters to view!

Anyone who has created a profile on our ICAEW Training Vacancies platform can upload their CV. Additional information around levels of experience, exams passed, time spent in a training agreement will significantly help amplify your profile to prospective employers.
