About Us

City CV was founded in 2008 by Victoria McLean, a former Head Hunter, Recruitment Specialist and Manager on-site at Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch. Its formation responded to the need for an expert organisation to support individuals in understanding corporate hiring practices and navigating the complex recruitment market.

City CV has continued to flourish with a dedicated focus on helping clients to secure their target roles. Initially established as a niche financial services business, it has extended its range, team and specialities to cover the full breadth of the corporate world and the public sector. It has built an unrivalled reputation for getting results.

A distinctive mix of Executive Head Hunters, HR Professionals, Interview Coaches, Copy Writers and Recruiters, the City CV team collaborates closely with clients on every aspect of the application process, whether for individuals or groups, as part of its well-established career coaching and outplacement programmes. From CV writing to interview coaching to graduate application form assistance, we offer all our clients a professional, unique and tailored approach to their job search.

At City CV, we work hard to gain our clients that vital edge in a highly competitive job market. Our single-minded aim is to provide our clients with a powerful toolkit to realise their career ambitions and achieve their job goals. It’s our unique combination of exceptional writing abilities, multiple award nominations, intuitive coaching and a robust strategy, backed up by unparalleled quality standards that set us apart.
