CV Update Service
City CV offers our existing clients a CV Update Service to ensure their marketing document is always current and ready for today’s employment market.
Adding new information to an existing CV involves an extensive review and careful editing of the current content before any new content can be added. This ensures the CV remains compelling and is fully aligned with the new targeted role.
Our update writing process goes through the same stringent steps as writing a new CV. It begins with a Skype / phone consultation with one of our professional writers who will prepare your updated CV, including fresh keyword research, aligning all copy to your target role(s), editing existing copy, creating new content and refreshing the formatting and style to bring it all up to date.
The updated CV will undergo City CV’s unique editing process, incorporating a clear interview-producing strategy, linguistic accuracy, correct tone and pitch, and key-word alignment to applicant tracking systems (ATS). CV quality is personally overseen by our quality proofing team, headed by our CEO and City CV’s Professor of English.
Your newly updated CV will be refined and the finished result – including formatting, power phrasing and keyword optimisation – will be tailored to you and your exact requirements.

Thank you so much for organising the career coaching session this morning. It has been a fantastic and productive session. Nick was so helpful and really helped me to take the best out of my CV and professional experience. I was so impressed. Thank you once again.
At the time you were preparing my new CV I managed to secure a position prior to obtaining this CV and so, at the time, I didn’t actually make use of it. Unfortunately, the CV I had used did not sufficiently accentuate my dual IT/legal background over a number of years – probably because I had never really taken CV preparation seriously previously. As a result I ended up in a rather junior position at a well-known professional services firm and, unhappily, I felt compelled to leave after only a few months. Since then I have started to use the CV you crafted and I was surprised by just how powerful an impact it has had. I received two offers last week, one of which I have accepted as Senior Counsel at a top tier law firm in London. I simply had to write to you and say thank you!
I have got the opinion of a good friend who is an HR professional on the CV – she has said it is perfect!
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.
I am absolutely delighted with the CV and covering letter. A big thank you to Godfrey and the team. Overall a really professional set of documents which I can now use with confidence.
I was invited for an interview just a few weeks after I got my CV done by City CV and now I have been hired as a Project Coordinator. The help and advice I received was brilliant. Thank you for all your help and assistance. I am sure I will be referring many people to you. Once again thank you.
I absolutely love the CV, it exceeded my expectations and has already got me to the interview stage with some good companies which is obviously very encouraging and pleasing. Please pass on my gratitude to Godfrey and the rest of your team involved. I will almost certainly be using your expertise again in future and will be recommending you to others.
I wanted to thank you for your great help! Devin has done a fantastic job writing my CV and Cover letter.
I had been invited for a couple of interviews last year. In December I got an offer from a top Swiss transport provider for a Manager role, a company I always wanted to work for. They even offered me to work 80%. I have started the new role in January and so far I am super happy.
With your help I was able to change industries (getting out of the financial services sector), working for the No 1 employer of Switzerland and to negotiate less than 100% 🙂
Thanks again! I have already recommended your service to a couple of friends and one is already in contact with you!
It was less than a month from completing the CV and LinkedIn profile to getting a role. And the bank found me via LinkedIn. No agent this time, direct to bank. I can’t thank you enough!
I didn’t thank you directly, but I take this opportunity to let you know it’s truly a fantastic job. It’s both a visual/layout and writing prowess. A friend told me a unicorn wouldn’t have a more magical resume
