Our team has over 20-years of experience in all areas of recruitment, CV writing, job searching, interviewing, career coaching, HR and business management as well as our team of consultant’s bringing their own industry wide knowledge and expertise; having a CV written for you is one thing, but a professionally written CV from a provider who ensures that they get to know you and understand your needs is quite another, this is where we differ to many other companies.  We take the time to talk with you and listen to you, ensuring that we produce a CV, and/or other products/services as required, that are tailored to you.

How does the CV writing process work?

Our CV writers will collaborate with you to create a stand-out CV that is tailored towards the role and industry of your choice. Once you have booked a meeting a discussed your needs and requirements with a Career Consultant, they will create a draft for you to review and revise as many times as needed until you are satisfied.

Once we receive your order, we will provide you with a booking link to arrange a meeting with one of our Career Consultants to review your career history and understand exactly what you are looking for. Within 7 days you will be contacted to review your new documents let us know if you have any alterations or additions.  We offer unlimited revisions until you are happy.

Once we have carried out our consultation with you, your CV will normally be contacted by your career consultant within 7 days to review the first draft.

Will a new CV guarantee me a new job?

What if I am not satisfied with the content of my CV?

I can download a CV template for free from the internet, why should I pay for your services?

Anyone can write a CV and a template is a useful tool for doing this, however, not everyone can write a CV that contains the information that prospective employers are looking for in a format and style that will attract attention – if your CV is not getting you the responses you expect then you may need to pay for your CV to be written for you.

Our career coaches will fully immerse themselves in your session and help you to accelerate the pace at which you achieve your goals. The coach will help you to establish goals, hold you accountable for your actions and use a wide range of tools and techniques to remove any barriers to progress.

What’s the difference between working with a Career Coach and a Life Coach?

‘Life Coach’ is a blanket term to describe a professional who helps a client move forward in their life. A Career Coach specialises in providing coaching to help a client specifically achieve their professional goals.

How do you measure a client’s success?

We maintain contact with all of our clients up until they achieve their objectives, which could be to secure
more interviews, negotiate higher salaries, or find a new career path that they find fulfilling. With the client’s consent, we also document case studies to illustrate the journey for the benefit of individuals seeking
some evidence of our impact.

You will not need to pay a full price for CV update – We provide a ‘CV refresh’ at a reduced price.
