Professional Writing

Writing your own CV doesn’t come naturally. A professionally produced and structured CV benefits from expert scrutiny and industry insight. It will present each person’s distinctive attributes in a way that shows the value they bring to their future employer.

Our team adopts a nuanced and strategic approach, which fuses market knowledge with a deep understanding of recruitment techniques. Our specialist CV writers are also talented interviewers, who can draw out your employees’ strengths to build their personal brand and create a compelling CV story.

Our process is quite simply life-changing, involving an in-depth consultation with an expert, who has spent years perfecting the art of CV writing and who genuinely cares about each client and their future success.

Marketing means standing out. We will arm your employee with exceptionally well researched and beautifully written personal promotional documents.

The City CV writing team are experts at articulating our clients’ USPs and creating powerful, keyword-optimised CVs, LinkedIn profiles, letters and bios that generate interviews.

Career Transition Coaching

At times of redundancy, company restructure and career transition, it is important for your business to offer support, promote change, inspire optimism and set the scene for a positive future. The way to achieve this is through tailored and professional career transition coaching and interview training.

Our Professional packages include proactive ongoing career support, which provides departing staff with a career companion. As needs change, the coach can adapt and refocus the transition plan. They can prepare interview strategies, discuss applications, advise on tailoring CVs and approaches for different roles – and be there to guide, support and encourage.

Career Coaching

Ongoing support from a skilled career coach brings clarity and composure to an uncertain environment.

We individually match our career coaches to each employee to produce optimum results. That personal touch is a lifeline for exiting employees. It will allow them to progress quickly, making the right career decisions to locate and secure their new role.

Interview Training

With a market average of 27 applications to secure just one interview, your people need to make the most of every opportunity. As part of the Professional Coaching Programme, our tailored one-to-one interview coaching will provide the preparation and techniques your employees need to transform their interview success.

This includes partnering with each employee to create, practise and deliver structured, strategic answers to a wide range of interview questions, helping the interviewer buy into ‘Brand You’. We will work hand in hand with each client to improve eloquence, overcome interview anxiety and increase personal credibility, gravitas and impact. Empowering negotiation techniques will help seal the deal.

We know that no two employees are the same. We create a specific development strategy for each individual.
