As UK leaders in CV writing for professionals and management, we’re used to capturing, distilling and framing the most complex or diverse of skill sets.

Managers & Directors

We bring 14+ 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 advice on IT CV best practice (click here 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. We offer specialist experience for:

  • Solution & Enterprise Architects
  • Application & Software Developers
  • Business Intelligence & Data Warehousing
