Thanks to your help I’ve secured four interviews this week, two of them final round. I know, specifically, that this upturn is due to your work, because I reapplied for one position I had been previously rejected from, only to now make it through to the first round having applied with the new CV via a different recruiter. I can’t think of better evidence than that!

M.G ... Agile Project Manager / Scrum Master

I wanted to congratulate you on an OUTSTANDING job. I was lost for words when I read the CV…the CV is PERFECT. Again, thank you very much for delivering an extraordinary CV.


Just letting you know Veronica has done a wonderful job and I’m happy to sign it off as accepted.

Howard ... Management Consultant

Many thanks for the updated version. Quite pleased to say that you have been brilliant and quite impressed the way you have structured my CV. Will be in touch with you if any queries.
At same time I would like to say a big thank you to the City CV team and especially to Victoria McLean for providing such a wonderful service and recruiting such a wonderful team.

The CV is outstanding, Phil is a very talented young man and it looks perfect.

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!

Geoff ... Business Analyst and Project Manager

Well done and a heartfelt ‘Thank you’ – a really fabulous job.


Your CV is getting me shortlisted. Thank you. Honestly, many thanks for your help, Nadia. I have been looking for a job since yesterday and I have been shortlisted for three roles already.

A.A. ... Equity Research / Investment Analyst

Invaluable help and support with CV, LinkedIn profile and interview coaching! Highly recommend – money well spent!


I’ve reviewed the CV (and used it already a couple of times), and I am very happy with the result, so you can consider this mail as official sign off. A special thank you for Lauren for her excellent work! I will not hesitate to recommend you to colleagues, actually I’ve already started doing so.
