NEW YORK (May 7, 2019) — Talent Inc., the global leader in technology-enabled career services, today announced the acquisition of the assets of CV Knowhow, a Manchester-based provider of CV-writing services to job seekers living in the UK. The news follows Talent Inc.’s recent launch of TopCV.de, signifying the company’s European expansion and first German-language offering.
“Strategic acquisitions enable us to deliver a more customized product and optimized customer experience through local expertise, while growing our global market share,” said Jeff Berger, CEO & founder of Talent Inc., which offers a suite of three brands: TopResume, TopInterview, and TopCV. “By acquiring CV Knowhow, we can deepen our knowledge of local best practices and recruitment processes to better serve those candidates seeking to land their next job in the UK, as well as other countries where CVs are customary.”
Acquiring CV Knowhow enables Talent Inc. to bolster its current offerings from TopCV, the largest CV-writing service in the world, which writes and analyzes more than one million CVs and LinkedIn profiles each year. Job seekers work directly with professional writers and industry experts to redefine their personal brand and stand out from the crowd during the job-search process.
“It’s been a privilege to work with the great team at CV Knowhow,” said Shaun Kirk, founder and CTO of CV Knowhow, following the acquisition. “After investment from 360 Resourcing in 2015, CV Knowhow has successfully grown to be the UK’s market-leading, CV-writing service, and it’s great to know that the brand will now be under the stewardship of the global market leader in career services.”
Additionally, Talent Inc.’s acquisition announcement this week aligns with TAtechEurope, a two-day conference that brings together the EMEA community of business leaders, technology experts, content developers, sales and marketing professionals, analysts, and investors in the talent-acquisition technology industry. As part of the annual European event, Mr. Berger will serve as a panelist among other industry experts from around the world.
