Competitors happy to endorse

New Zealand owned and operated job website celebrates its place as being the smartest online job site in New Zealand by receiving endorsement from one of its main rivals.

APN Media owned competitor has unwittingly been promoting CVBank’s banner on its home page for the last 5 days referring thousands of job seekers through to its newest rival CVBank.

CVBank Managing Director Scott Jackson said, “We thought we would test how effective our competitors were monitoring what’s happening on their site, because we think users and advertisers aren’t getting the service, or value for money from the existing job board companies”.

Thursday saw CVBank’s banner ads sneak under the radar, enticing job hunters with a $100 cash reward to find a job through its site. “I was amazed they allowed it to go up, and what’s more they haven’t taken it down.” Mr Jackson says. To Jackson, this proves that “if you want the best service and a well monitored job site, CVBank is the only place to be”. is one of Wellington’s hottest start ups, launched in June 2008 in order to bring the New Zealand Job board space back to the hands of New Zealanders. “We are simply answering the call of the market” Mr Jackson says. “We want to give the public an easy way to find jobs, a service that is smart and well monitored, and importantly, a kiwi owned job board for kiwis”.

In today’s job board market there is a lot more needed than just a plain website charging fees. With smart technology to align job hunters with great employers including the use of VideoCVs, Video Job Ads and Job Text Alerts, CVBank’s smart marketing tactics also ensure its offering is one that even its competitors will support.
