Recruiting made easy

The CVWarehouse story

CVWarehouse started as a back office management tool for Executive Research. A recruiting agency, founded by Inge Geerdens in 2003 and today part of Acerta. But Inge wanted it to be more. She dreamed of an easy-to-use online hiring tool. She wanted to improve the recruiting experience for both companies and candidates.

So, she went back to the drawing table to design something new. A tool allowing candidates to upload and manage their CV’s and application letters. A tool making it easier for people to apply for one or more jobs. And also a tool that companies would be able to use as a job portal next to or integrated with their company website. With a lot of extra features, e.g. to post and promote jobs, manage applications and build a talent pool. Even to work with recruiting partners. Inge’s team build way more than a CV database. CVWarehouse became a full-fledged Applicant Tracking System (ATS).

A first version of CVWarehouse launched in 2006. It was well received on the Belgian market. Big international brands, like McDonalds, Brussels Airlines, Q8 and Estée Lauder signed up early. Inge soon decided to also try her luck abroad.

Today, CVWarehouse has offices in Antwerp (Belgium), Lisbon (Portugal) and San Francisco (USA). Over 300 companies in 20 countries use the company’s ATS. Either as a stand alone job portal or as a part of their company website, integrated via API or iFrame. It’s also available in over 10 languages.

Customers love the tool for its comprehensive feature set and easy-to-use setup. But perhaps most because of the no nonsense, helpful approach from the CVWarehouse team.
