The value we can add to your CV:

A polished, slick advantage to help you put your best foot forward. We create content that’s fresh and original, without clunky English or clichéd phrasing. Believe it or not, you may not be the best person to objectively select and prioritise your skills. Our services are driven by a strategic focus on your target role, with our in-house CV writers specialising in different levels, sectors and functions. We can also ensure that your LinkedIn profile is as equally polished and precise. They say you're known by the company you keep, so we hope our contributions to the likes of The Guardian and The Telegraph, as well as our prestigious group of partners and affiliates, show our class. Our team is a healthy combination of superbly-creative Copywriters and accredited Career Coaches, and as such we can put a full array of tools at your disposal beyond the CV if required to help you progress, such as career planning and interview coaching.

How our CV writing service works:

We simply ask the questions that matter and then do the rest. Our CV writing services are in place to repackage you in line with current market demands and criteria. Understanding and defining your career goals helps focus our efforts in exactly the right direction – getting your foot in the door, so our first step is always to carefully clarify your objectives. Not everyone comes with a fully-decided target role, so if required we can even help you define your objectives going forward. We’ll then craft your CV strategically to reflect our advice, and can even create you a second or third version aligned with different goals. Call/message us to outline your requirements or send us your current CV for a free appraisal.

Managers & Directors

Applying at management or director-level in today's market really does demand a CV that's competitive, fresh and original.

Whether from a blue-chip or SME background, our approach remains the same - articulating in detail how you drive functions forward and add value. From middle managers who lead on the front-line to C-level executives who operate at a strategic level, this non-exhaustive list contains some of the many functions we have experience with:

We bring 15+ years' experience in creating CVs for IT professionals. Our detailed knowledge of existing and new technologies/methodologies enables us to write them with authority. As such, Telegraph Jobs published our IT CV advice (click to view).

The key is to demonstrate a wide portfolio of skills. It’s symptomatic of many IT CVs to resemble long, technical ‘laundry lists’, but they crucially also need to appeal to general management and HR. Most organisations do not exist in order to create new technology – they leverage it to achieve their overall aims. The reader needs to see original content on both your technical and non-technical skills to differentiate you. Our experience includes:

  • CTOs & CIOs
  • Solution & Enterprise Architects
  • Digital, E-commerce & New Media
  • Application & Software Developers
  • Big Data, Business Intelligence & Data Warehousing

Our ability to capture this from our clients and then translate into words has helped us to elevate their CVs over the years. Whether you deploy PRINCE2, Agile, Lean, Scrum, Waterfall or Six Sigma methodologies, we explore how you manage or oversee the key phases:

  • Engagement & Requirements
  • Planning & Scoping
  • Implementation
  • Monitoring & Controls
  • Readiness & Delivery
  • Completion & Closure

We're experienced CV writers for both managers of individual projects and the programmes above them, which drive:

  • Transformation & Change
  • Modernisation & Progression
  • Cost Efficiency & Productivity
  • Evolution & Improvement

Finance & Banking

We have a wealth of CV writing experience for professionals globally within Financial Services and Money Markets, as well as Retail, Commercial and Investment Banking.
The key is to not only describe your role and industry credentials, but also the softer skills necessary to deliver. Our expertise spans:

  • FDs & CFOs
  • Financial Controllers
  • Accounts & Audit
  • Corporate Finance
  • Risk & Compliance

Interim & Consulting

LOGO ALIUM.pngAs official CV partner to Alium - leader in Interim Management Recruitment (click on logo to see our CV advice on their website), we have developed a presitgious reputation in this market. The interim world can offer highly-lucrative day rates, and is therefore competitive. We adopt a different approach when creating an interim-focused CV to follow the lifecycle across engagement, evaluation, proposal, implementation, completion and handover. We present more of a business case than just historical list of past assignments, and as such, have achieved real success for Interim Managers and Consultants who drive solutions to:

  • Business Process Improvement
  • Productivity Step Change
  • Transformation & Turnaround
  • Restructuring & Streamlining
  • Cost Efficiency & Rationalisation

Ultimately we need to describe how you establish trust, gain an understanding of organisational needs/ culture, plan a solution and turn it into actuality whilst maintaining support and buy-in from all.

Career Change

CAREER CHANGE.pngPursuing a change of direction, whether to a new function or sector, can seem like a daunting challenge. Although many people have the skill set and abilities necessary, they feel it isn’t tangible because of how their existing CV presents them. We've helped many clients over the years achieve the professional move they desire by showcasing their transferable strengths, potential and value offered through tactical creative writing.
After fully establishing your new target role/audience, we profile you in the present tense with a more competency-based approach in complete alignment. A strictly chronological CV which places the emphasis on your past positions and activities won't help facilitate such a change, so we’ll repackage you in a new light through our purposeful written skills. Transitional moves we can help turn into reality include:

  • Public to private sector
  • Permanent to interim
  • Business owners back into the market
  • Progression to the next level
  • Relocation to a different geography

Not-for-Profit & Public Sectors

We have extensive experience in writing CVs for Not-for-Profit and Public Sector appointments, when we often have to focus on different skill areas such as ethics, policy, strategy, relations, engagement, networks, development or standards.

As well as helping clients advance their careers in these sectors, we've earned equal success for those wishing to transition either to or from the Private sector. This is achieved by writing a more hybrid-style CV with the onus placed on transferable skills and abilities. Our expertise covers:

  • Government - Local, National & International
  • Public & Private Healthcare/Medical
  • NGOs & NPOs
  • Charities & Foundations
  • Utilities
  • Education & Development
  • Science & Pharma
  • Social & Public Services
  • Fundraising
  • Environmental
  • Ex-Military & Police
  • Academia & Research
