Marketing & Creative

Our team includes writers with backgrounds in communications, marketing, TV & radio, journalism and the arts. We have helped clients from all parts of the sector to secure their dream jobs

Marketing, Media and the Creative Industries are characterised by a fluidity that allows individualism and individuals to flourish. With more than a quarter of a million businesses worth over £100 billion to the UK economy and with unparalleled global opportunities, this is one of the most dynamic sectors in the contemporary marketplace.

People who work in the creative economy tend to possess a diverse skillset that blends imaginative flair, an analytical mindset and cutting-edge use of digital technologies that generate fresh ways to promote ideas, transform knowledge and penetrate new markets. Responsive, agile and intuitive, they understand – and influence – consumer behaviour, and shape the customer experience. At City CV we understand how to elicit and articulate those industry-specific qualities and how to turn a career history into a compelling CV, LinkedIn profile and interview pitch that showcase each individual’s talent.

Whether you work in marketing, design, advertising or are a creative artist, you will share many of the same attributes. People in these fields are proactive and resilient, able to multi-task and with the self-discipline to work autonomously and as part of a vibrant team. Their ability to explore concepts, inspire others and contribute to commercial success places them in high demand. Our creative industries’ clients come to City CV for specialised help in in encapsulating these qualities in their CV, LinkedIn profile and cover letter, and for support in developing an interview pitch that will make them shine.

We also offer outplacement support and career transition coaching to help individuals move on and move forward in their career.

“You all did a fantastic job. The CV is so powerful that a recruiter manager from McKinsey has contacted me less than 48 hours (!) after submitting my application. Thank you all, much appreciated.”
Asaf, Branding Professional

Just over a year on, I am excited to say I have received an offer and contract for my first marketing job. This is due, in no small part, to the excellent CV I was able to submit.”
