Higher Education Employability Programmes

Enhancing students’ employability is a major objective for business schools, universities and colleges today. At City CV we work in partnership across the range of Higher Education institutions to maximise your students’ chances of securing their target role.

City CV’s specialist market knowledge enables students to gain a real advantage over other applicants by optimising the impact of their CVs and applications, and by developing interview confidence and performance. This includes expert advice and inside knowledge of the recruitment and application process for investment banks, investment managers, the Big Four accountancy firms and global blue-chips.

It is this professional insight, knowledge and background that gives City CV the edge, and that creates the distinctive focus that maps on to more generic career training.

City CV has won first prize for ‘Best Graduate CV’ and ‘Best International CV’ in the international TORI awards, the ‘Oscars’ of the CV writing world and the industry’s most prestigious competition.
