With over 100 applications per job, recruiters spend an average of five seconds looking at each CV. To give yourself the best chance of securing an interview, it is vital that you equip yourself with a first-rate CV.
There are no second chances at a first impression.
Writing a CV sounds easy and there is a great deal of information available online, however, it is often contradictory and outdated, making it difficult to know where to start.
There is much more to a CV than a standard list, the format is crucial and content is key. We have an extensive knowledge of the recruitment industry having worked in this sector for many years and in this time we have read thousands of CVs. We have developed a deep understanding of what interests and attracts recruiters, hiring managers and business owners, and write CVs that secure interviews.
We will write a concise, compelling and professional document providing a detailed insight in to your skills, strengths, expertise and key achievements, clearly illustrating how you can add significant value to an employer. Immediately attention will be drawn to the most relevant aspects, using the most effective layout and font combination, saving recruiters precious seconds searching for information.
To enhance your personal brand and utilise multiple tools to secure your dream job, you may want to consider a cover letter and LinkedIn profile in addition to a professionally written CV.
“I wanted to say a massive thank you and your team, after 20 years in my last employment feeling very nervous about looking for employment again, from the time I walked through your door you put me at total ease. Never having done a CV before you made sure I pulled on all my strengths from my previous employment helping me feel very confident that I did have a lot to offer. Well I am very pleased to say that I got the post of general manager at company name withheld - and it doesn't stop there having then recommended your services to my daughter Emily, she also got the position of Assistant Manager at the new company name withheld coming to Shrewsbury shortly.
I will continue to recommend your professional person centred service you and your team offer Meg many thanks again.”
