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!

M.K. ... Legal Counsel

When I needed a new, dynamic LinkedIn profile for a job I was applying for, City CV really came up with the goods. I was sceptical at first about what difference it would make but my new boss told me how impressed they were by it. Excellent work!

Nicola ... Solicitor

I just wanted to say thank you again, Victoria. I truly believe that this new CV is the start of many wonderful opportunities to come my way this year. Please say a big thank you to Carter for the amazing job he's done for me.

A. Lewis ... Legal Graduate

Thanks a lot, this looks amazing! I am really happy with the work you have done so I am ready to update my new profile.

Marco B ... Financial Lawyer
