Managers & Directors

Operating at management or director-level demands a CV that’s dynamic, strategic and distinct. Let’s not just make claims to your range of leadership skills, but actually describe and prove them. We’ll consolidate your past results and present you in an original way. Whether you manage on the front-line or govern above that on a strategic level, we have experience in functions such as:

  • Business Development & Sales
  • Finance & Accounts
  • Technology & Digital
  • Media
  • Operations
  • Marketing & Communications

From middle management to C-level executives, we define how you lead, deliver and add value.

IT & Technical

A number of our writers specialise in CVs for IT professionals. Our detailed knowledge of technologies and methodologies enables us to create IT-focused CVs with authority and conviction.

The key is to demonstrate a wide portfolio of skills. It’s symptomatic of weak IT CVs to include long ‘laundry lists’ of technology, but they crucially need to appeal equally to 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 content on both your technical and your non-technical skills to differentiate you. Our IT CV experience spans:

  • Solution & Enterprise Architects
  • Application & Software Developers
  • Business Intelligence & Data Warehousing
  • Service Delivery
  • Digital & New Media
  • Telcos
  • Systems Engineers
  • Programmers & Analysts
  • Database Administrators
  • CTOs & CIOs

Project & Programme Managers

  • Transformation & Change

Banking & Finance

It's key to not only describe your financial expertise, but also the non-financial skills in your arsenal. Our city-based team has reaped great results for functions including:

  • Financial Controllers
  • Accounts & Audit
  • Corporate Finance
  • Risk & Compliance
  • Investment Banking
  • Asset & Fund Management

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 experienced in presenting the key criteria necessary.

Business Analysts

With a comprehensive view of the project in a real working scenario, BAs often deal with both business and developmental perspectives. We have an in-house writer who focuses solely in this field, working with each client to define their approach in 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.

Whether interim or permanent, an effective BA's CV in today’s market should convey their skill set chronologically through the lifecycle. We know how to demonstrate how crucial you have been/can be to the success of a project and how your quality of work will permeate through the outcome.

We factor into our written work the nuances necessary for the document to succeed in its target country.
