CV Writing – Academia & Public Sector

The Higher Education landscape is constantly changing as universities respond to the new funding regime, the post-REF research environment and increasing international competition, all of which affect the positioning of UK Higher Education institutions. Whilst this means that the HE and FE job market is more diverse and more competitive than ever before, it also offers increasing opportunities.

Academic Excellence: City CV has special expertise in CV writing for academia, whether for academic management, teaching/research or administrative roles in both universities and colleges. We can tailor your professional, academic CV to a specific application and ensure that your key achievements, skills, relevant experience, research activities, publications and awards are properly highlighted in order to provide a coherent and compelling narrative of your career history and your fit for an advertised role.
