We simply don’t believe in ‘one size fits all' generic CV writing. If you operate at a certain level and want to either progress or change your career, the current market demands a serious, credible CV which is non-formulaic, nor rushed or missing detailed industry insight. As leading specialists in CV writing at professional and management-level, we’re used to capturing and wording the most complex or diverse of skill sets for those across such areas as Business, Technology, Commerce, Finance and Media.

Our advice in The Telegraph:
We explore that when it comes to CV writing it’s vital that you’re pitching yourself at the right level – in some companies there is a gulf between the remit and responsibilities of a middle and senior manager. If you want to pitch up a level, use your professional profile and skills section to embellish your potential. Overall, a management CV is so much more than a record of information now. The team here at The CV Experts knows exactly what’s competitive in the current market.
Our advice in AOL Money:
This is where we advocate making the CV as bespoke as possible, and demonstrating the correlation between the role and your skills. The profile needs to act as a headline for your CV. It should sum up your mission statement and your point of difference. It should be a simple, succinct summary. Don't fall into off-the-shelf phrasing. Steer clear of the cliché and be original in your wording so that the person reading it doesn't skim over vital skills and attributes. A good professional CV now must contain fresh, non-formulaic phrasing which makes your approach original and distinct – this is the foundation to success which our CV writers follow rigorously.
Our advice in Jobs & Career:
A curriculum vitae has to start with a call-to-action opening statement. Here we explain how senior- level career change is achievable through your CV, but you must exercise shrewd creative licence. Start with tailoring your professional profile. As the CV opener, this is a great opportunity to grab the reader’s attention by telling them what they want to hear. After all, are you keen to read a news article if the headline is boring? The professional profile (sometimes called personal profile) opens and sets the tone for the CV. Our CV service will always provide you with commanding opening profile content.
Our advice in The Guardian:
Employers this year will on average read 70 résumés for every vacancy advertised. So how can a graduate make their CV stand out? The Guardian asked three recruitment experts, including our own CV writing team, for their top tips. We explain that if you haven't got a lengthy employment record, emphasise your talents. We recommend beginning with a skill section which outlines your key personal strengths, using any previous jobs as evidence. Our professional CV services are in fact in place to select, filter and prioritise your abilities to optimum effect.
