Using CVMinder®

CVMinder® Guide

Here at Xperian Recruitment Ltd, we do our very best to treat all of our candidates with respect. That means that we:

  • Retain confidentiality around the discussions we have together
  • Keep you informed of progress with any job application
  • Only with your consent share your details with an employer

To help us, we use CVMinder®. It’s a secure applicant tracking system that preserves your application history, informs you of your application status and allows you to keep your personal information up to date.

CVMinder® puts you in control

We use CVMinder® to present your details to our clients and we can’t do that without your knowledge and consent. You automatically give consent when you apply for a specific vacancy, but with any other, you’ll be asked to apply or you may receive a notification of your inclusion as a candidate. This would only happen after speaking with you and you will have the option to withdraw at any time.

Here’s some helpful tips on making the best use of CVMinder®:

Updating your personal details and preferences

From the Home page, go to My Account.

You will be on the first of three tabs:

  • Personal Info – name, address, password, photo etc.
  • Preferences – job and alert preferences
  • Referees – referee contact details and sharing options
Personal Info

In Personal Information you can change your address, marital status, phone numbers, email addresses and CVMinder Account password.

Tip: Upload a photo of yourself as this will help your Consultant to remember you and your discussions.


The preferences section allows you to tailor your job preferences for future alerts. You can turn these on and off towards the bottom of the page. To help the CVMinder alerting system to deliver the most appropriate job alerts to you, use the keyword section at the bottom of the page.

Tip: Use keywords that best describe the position you are looking for and use only one word per text box.


Complete details for your referees here. You can select who can see your referee information by ticking the appropriate selection box.

Tip: Include your referee details in this section ready to share later at the click of a button.

Application Status and Documents

From the Home page, go to My Applications.

Once you have applied for a vacancy you will see your status here. You can:

  • Click the advert title to review the job advertisement
  • Review any documents that are attached to a vacancy
  • Return any documents that require completion

Tip: select the information button (click here if you are having problems) to reveal contact information for the vacancy and any tips for returning documents.

Job Search

From the Home Page, go to Job Search.

By default you may be seeing the publically listed jobs of only those organisations with which you are registered. If you are registered with Xperian Recruitment, you’ll see our live vacancies.

Tip: Change your search sector, salary and location preferences by selecting Refine Search Options. You can select whether you wish to see vacancies from all organisations using CVMinder or just those you are registered with.
