Managers & Directors

Applying at management or director-level in today's market really does demand a CV that’s competitive, fresh and original. Don't just make general, subjective claims to your leadership skills, but actually prioritise, describe and prove them in alignment with your target role. 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:

IT & Technical

We bring 14+ years' experience of 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 some 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:

  • Solution & Enterprise Architects
  • Application & Software Developers
  • Big Data, Business Intelligence & Data Warehousing
  • Information & Cyber Security
  • E-commerce, Digital & New Media
  • Telco & Mobile
  • Systems & Network Engineers
  • Programmers & Analysts
  • Database Administrators
  • Service Delivery & Support
  • CTOs & CIOs

Project & Programme Managers


Every PM has their own approach and formula for driving each stage of the project lifecycle. Our ability to define this with each client and translate onto paper has helped us elevate their CVs consistently. We've worked with those who deploy PRINCE2, Agile, Lean, Scrum, Waterfall and Six Sigma methodologies amongst others, but each time we explore how you manage the key phases:

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

We’ve written CVs for both permanent and contract PMs, as well as PMOs, for projects spanning:

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

Banking & Finance

We have a wealth of CV writing experience with professionals across Financial Services and Retail/ Commercial/ Investment Banking, including those applying to such names as:

  • Barclays
  • HSBC
  • Morgan Stanley
  • Bank of America Merrill Lynch

It's key to not only describe your industry/ financial credentials, but also the softer skills necessary to deliver. Our city-based team has specific expertise with functions and roles such as:

  • Financial Controllers
  • Accounts & Audit
  • Corporate Finance
  • Risk & Compliance
  • Investment Banking
  • Asset & Fund Management
  • Private Equity & Venture Capital

Interim Managers & Consultants

LOGO ALIUM.pngAs official CV partner to Alium - leader in Interim Management Recruitment, we have developed a reputation in this market. The interim arena 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, build a plan to remedy, and turn it into actuality whilst maintaining support and buy-in from all.

FX, Trading & Money Markets

In the past our city-based team has worked repeatedly for Money Market professionals and Traders. Quite often our clients in this arena are approached about opportunities in the 'hidden' job market via contacts and networks. Therefore the CV is required more to support their credibility and strengthen their bargaining power for a potential offer. We have the credentials to build targeted CVs and LinkedIn profiles for those across:

  • FX/Futures
  • Fixed Income, Equities & Derivatives
  • Commodities
  • Capital Markets
  • Portfolio Management
  • Hedge Funds
  • Private Wealth
  • Front, Middle & Back Office
  • Treasury Management
  • Analysis

In these highly-competitive markets your industry acumen and connections are often the main currency. We'll consolidate your skill set including any specialist expertise (e.g. MM instruments, trading platforms) to help maximise your pitch.

Public & Third Sectors

Our team has extensive experience in pitching those for Public and Third sector appointments - UK and beyond. This includes knowledge of the complexities involved with the New Public sector. Often we need to focus such CVs around ethics, policy, strategy, relations, engagement, networks, development or targets.

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 Healthcare & NHS
  • Private Healthcare
  • NGOs & NPOs
  • Not-for-Profit

  • Ex-Military & Police
  • Academia & Research

Non-Executive Directors

Whether you’re an established NED looking to add to your portfolio, or wishing to enter this market for the first time, we’re highly-experienced in presenting the main criteria necessary. Ultimately, the key is to demonstrate how you can unlock the value in a business by drawing on your wealth of experience, provide expert counsel and a vital independent perspective. Areas to explore on the NED CV include:

  • Good Governance
  • Integrity & Ethics
  • Strategic Evaluation
  • Financial Acumen
  • Risk & Regulation
  • Board Decision-making
  • Transformation & Turnaround
  • Acquisitive Growth/M&A
  • Coaching & Advisory

For those seeking their first NED appointment, we'll reframe the skills gained from your past executive career into a more conducive light. For experienced NEDs we'll ensure your CV is current and competitive. In both circumstances, we'll build a rigorous case on your behalf by articulating the diversity in your skill set.

Business Analysts

With a comprehensive view of the project in a real working scenario, BAs often deal with both business and developmental perspectives. One of our in-house writers here specialises in this field, working with each client to define their approach to such stages as:

  • Scoping Prospects: initiation, analysis, feasibility, agreement and consent.
  • Gathering Requirements: capture, document and validate functional/non-functional.
  • Process Mapping: identification, presentation, recommendation and requirements transfer.
  • Solution: input generation, interfacing, co-ordinating, design, specification and formalization.
  • Testing & Verification: acceptance criteria, measures, standards, controls and reporting.

Whether interim or permanent, an effective BA's CV in today’s market should describe and prove each of their skills at each phase of the lifecycle in chronological sequence. This not only differentiates them from other BAs, but also demonstrates how crucial their approach is to the success of a project, and how their quality of work permeates through the outcome.
