How much should you be getting paid? This app will look at your CV and tell you what you're worth

Adzuna has built a tool to help employees negotiate pay

By Hazel Sheffield

A new app by the job search site Adzuna can tell you how much you are worth just by looking at your CV.

Value My CV looks at over 100 data points in a CV, from education to employers to job skills, and uses that data to calculate a person’s market rate. It was created by the same data scientist who worked on Rightmove’s house price algorithm.

Users can then generate a statistical estimate of their salary alongside suggested jobs, CV improvements and career pathways.

Andrew Hunter, who co-founded Adzuna, said that it took them about a year to build the technology.

“We think there’s a problem matching candidates in the UK,” Hunter said. “There are a million unemployed and a million jobs, but at the moment people don’t realise what’s available. We’re trying to help solve that problem using new technology.”
