Frustrated by his own time-consuming job hunt back in the days when he was a carpet fitter, managing director Lee Biggins, 40, started this online job site with a £9,000 loan in 2000. The company stores nearly 12m CVs that are accessed, for a fee, by recruitment agencies and companies including Sports Direct, G4S, Adecco and Signet Jewellers. It also advertises more than 160,000 vacancies at over 10,000 companies and provides careers advice. Outside the UK, it operates CV-library.ie in the Republic of Ireland as well as Resume-Library.com in America, where it opened an office in Boston in May 2016. Sales hit £25.2m last year.
