CV search and discovery
How do I set up CV by email alerts?
Give your alert a name (if desired), input the email address you want your alerts to be sent to, select your desired alert frequency, and click Create Alert. Whenever a new jobseeker uploads a CV matching your search criteria, we’ll email you their details at your selected frequency.
To stop an email alert, simply navigate to the CV Discovery homepage and click Manage All to the right of your CV Alerts area. You’ll be taken to a menu where you can see a full list of all your CV alerts; click the Bin icon to the right of your chosen alert. This will delete the alert.

How do I refine and sort CV search results?
Once you have made your initial search, you can use the filters on the left hand side to refine your search results by parameters such as how recently a candidate has updated their profile, their desired salary, their level of profile completion, and many more.
For more tips and advice on best practice when searching for candidates, simply contact your account manager on 01772 639042 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I view and download CVs & profiles?
Should you wish to view the candidate’s full profile including their contact details, simply click on View Full Profile, which will use one CV credit. Once the full profile has been revealed, you can then select either Download CV (to download the candidate’s CV in its original format) or Download Full Profile (to download the candidate’s Simply Marketing profile in its current format as you are viewing it).
Selecting to download a candidate’s profile or CV once you have already spent a credit to view the profile, will not use up an additional credit.
Alternatively, if you would prefer to download a candidate’s CV straight from the limited view of their profile, you can also select Download CV whilst on the limited profile view and your CV credit will be used at this point. The candidate’s full profile will also be revealed within your current browser once you have downloaded their CV, and you can also then select Download Full Profile to receive a copy of their Simply Marketing profile with no further cost to your CV credits.

Can I save my most common searches in CV Discovery?
You can also create an alert for your most common searches where you’ll be notified by email of any new candidates who match your search terms, at the frequency of your choosing. Whenever you create an alert, this search term will also appear next to your recent searches on the initial search page whenever you access CV Discovery, so that you can access them easily with a single click, saving you valuable time.

How do I use Boolean Search in CV Discovery?
Using any combination of the operators AND, OR, NOT, you’ll be able to search for highly specific terms.
Quotation marks should be used around your desired search terms, and parentheses should be used if you are grouping multiple terms together under the same search condition, e.g. search for anything EXCEPT (this OR this).
See below for examples:
“SEO” OR “search engine”
“outreach” NOT (“direct” OR “mail”)
“product” AND “manager”
