Information Technology

& Telecommunications

As former Big 4 and FTSE 500 technology professionals themselves, our dedicated IT&T team has professional experience within this sector.

The Information Technology & Telecommunications sectors comprise the defining industries of today’s globalised world. The reliance on IT&T and the development of cutting- edge solutions now underpin all sectors, both private and public.  ICT drives innovation, transforms the ways in which we work, breaks down global barriers and facilitates international collaboration on a previously unprecedented scale.

The subsections of these industries determine the capacity of both large multinationals and local enterprises, enabling them to flourish in response to customer demand and to become more agile as they integrate new tools and techniques that in turn create dynamic business strategy. From Software, Infrastructure and Cloud Services, Cybersecurity and IoT to Data  Science, the range of careers for IT professionals is constantly evolving.

The sector wants individuals whose technical knowledge is matched by advanced analytical and problem-solving capabilities together with the crucial softer competencies of effective team working and the ability to translate ideas into the solutions that will inspire company strategy. City CV helps clients to present this skill mix through a suite of personal branding documents and interview support packages that will attract and impress top IT&T recruiters and employers.

The opportunities to progress and diversify are virtually unmatched. In an internationally competitive environment, individuals are no longer tied to a particular location. Because they can work for any company from anywhere in the world, it is even more important for them to stand out from the crowd with a powerful CV,  LinkedIn profile and interview pitch. City CV’s tailored career coaching helps crystallise personal career goals and shows how to secure the most fulfilling and rewarding roles at all stages of a career.

A CV in this sector needs to fuse IT credentials with the commercial value that an individual brings to a business. How they contribute to hitting targets, boosting profit and transforming processes for internal clients and customers. Framing achievements with conviction and confidence. Why the candidate will be a superb cultural fit. This is where City CV can help.

“Looking to reach the next level in my career, I found that despite my technical competency, I wasn’t best placed to communicate how my particular skill set would translate to the executive level. Initially sceptical of the merit of a professional CV review, I arrived at City CV after realising that the conversion rate for my applications was around 7% – not great.

The consultant I was given, Karl, who, contrary to my rather arrogant assumption, knew my industry backwards, and was able to walk me through my profile from the perspective of my target employers, and through one-to-one conversation, iterated through until we had a CV that communicated exactly what was needed – no more, no less.

The effect was immediate, with my conversion rate skyrocketing to 40%, 4 job offers, and ultimately a 38% salary increase. Naturally, I now consider the services of City CV as essential to my career progression as networking and conventional CPD. An absolute no-brainer, worth every penny – cannot recommend strongly enough.”
