Professional CV Writing

A professional, well-written and targeted CV is crucial for successfully landing your next role. Opinions and ideas vary enormously about the ideal content of a CV. Ultimately, a CV must showcase your skills and experience in a way that encourages the recruiter to invite you for an interview. My Professional CV Writing Service provides a personal, approachable and affordable way to have a great CV of which to be proud.

How does your CV Writing Service work?

Producing a polished, concise and professional CV is a collaborative process. You are the expert on you and your skills! I provide a bespoke one to one client service and work with you on every aspect of your new CV. After an initial free telephone or email consultation to establish your requirements, I assess your current CV and provide you with a quote. Once you give me the go ahead, I write a draft based on your original CV and any additional information you provide. Should you not have a CV in any format, I provide a very simple form that allows you to quickly provide the basics such as job title, employer, dates of employment and key responsibilities. I then work with this information to create a first draft from which we then work. If you have a job description and person specification for a role for which you would like to apply, feel free to send that over too and I can tailor your professional CV to your target roles. You can then use your new CV as a template for each role for which you subsequently apply.

How long does it take?

I aim to produce a finished CV within three to five working days of an initial consultation. If you have an urgent requirement for a professional CV, please call me on 07530 719271. There is an addition fee charged for a 24-hour and 48-hour service.

I've been in the work place for years! How do I fit it all in?

Two pages are ideal so keeping your work history brief, succinct and relevant is key to getting your CV read by the right people. If you have started researching, you are probably aware that on average, a recruiter spends about 15-20 seconds skimming each CV. Making sure your CV receives the attention it deserves is crucial to making it through to the next stage in the selection process - the interview.

What function does a CV perform?

You are now a product you are taking to market so it is your responsibility to sell yourself well. A CV is often your first opportunity to demonstrate your suitability for a new role so it must:

What do recruiters think of having a CV written professionally?

Many of my clients are referred to me by headhunters, recruiters and managers keen to see a well-written CV. A well-written professional CV will also be required to apply online or via a recruitment agency. Recruitment consultants rarely have time to re-write your CV for you, so having a professional CV written can add to your appeal as an easily placed candidate. As a recruiter, I was always relieved to receive a well-written, succinct and professionally presented CV. Many of my clients use my service because they simply do not have time to investigate current trends in CV writing, covering letters and application forms.

Will I need to make changes to my new CV?

A CV is a very fluid document and it is vital to review and edit your CV for every role to which you apply. It is important to analyse each job description and person specification to ensure you include the key words and phrases relating to the particular role. There are thousands of key words related to each profession and sector so it is impossible to include them all. Also, each organisation has its own style of writing - some more formal than others so checking out a company website as well as the job description can help you to make sure the minor amendments you make assist the recruiter to identify you as a suitable candidate. A professionally written CV can be used as a fantastic template for each application. The first crucial step in a successful job search campaign!
