IMAGINE: Not just outranking, but conquering your fellow competitors. ‘YOU’ get to say ‘CHECKMATE’ to the competition, because when we think ‘YOU’ win, that’s what you want, isn’t it?

With so many CV companies around, why should I use you?

We provide our extensive expertise in typography, copywriting, desktop publishing and self-marketing to the forefront. All our professional CV writers have a minimum of 10 years’ experience, with backgrounds in Motivational Psychology, HR departments, recruitment and marketing. They all possess up-to-date knowledge on the principles of influence and recruitment and keen senses for what employers look for when selecting candidates.

We practice the latest findings from experts in the fields of psychological advances i.e. Motivational Psychology, Psychological Triggers, Judgmental Heuristics, Emotional Marketing, Prospect Theory, Collective Efficacy and Self-Regulatory Mechanisms (self-influence in human self-development, adaptation, and change). It’s taken many fine experts decades of research in the fields of psychology and behavioural science to deliver some of the most significant and cutting-edge breakthroughs, and to whom we are exceptionally grateful for their time.

These principles are applied to all human decision making across cultures, genders and age groups; providing us with an instant competitive edge over those without this breakthrough knowledge.

As mentioned, it's taken decades of research in the fields of psychology and behavioural science – scientifically proven principles that allow ordinary people just like you to gain an instant competitive edge over your fellow job applicants.

Impartiality


Frequently, we are asked the following ‘apprehensive’ question:

“What places a consultant in a higher authority position over me, seeing that it’s my CV?”

Our answer is simple; “A professional CV writer is an independent individual, who provides an ‘impartial’ overview.”

The CV writer’s ability to stay focused while being consistent, clearly capturing key strengths and experience, whilst retaining the client’s personality, leaves the client feeling elevated, motivated and confident. It’s this ‘impartiality’ that allows others to see qualities and traits that we ourselves cannot see.

Right Questioning


Our consultants are highly skilled at asking the right questions, their job is to pull out bits of information and place together in a coherent form. They have the ability to place themselves in the mind-set of their clients in order to get a real feel for who they are, what they’ve achieved and what they’re looking for.

Stressing the importance of asking the ‘Right Questions’ - this brings forward a crucial benefit. Consultants will be asking very similar questions to that of your interviewer. You will also be advised to make a list of your own questions in relation to the position you’re aiming for.

Your interviewer will certainly expect you to ask some questions of your own, near concluding the interview. It’s this clarity and preparedness that will not only provide you with renewed confidence, but also make a great impression upon the interviewer.

Your true worth


The main task of the CV writer is to discover your ‘true worth’, which is then transferred to the application document (your CV). At this stage, it is not only your skillset, experience and personality that count, but your presentation of it.

As you’ve just read, we take a coaching approach, providing the time, care and effort to focus on you individually, to produce a highly focused and impactful CV. We will craft the best CV – one that shows your ‘true worth’. Distinguishing you from the crowd and increasing your opportunity for continuous advancement.

Fair & comprehensive


The CV packages we offer are both fairly priced and comprehensive e.g. you will receive your digital copies at no extra cost (all-inclusive). Clicking on those additional ‘tick boxes’ can be very costly, it’s a common payment practice used amongst other CV consultancies.

We are confident to say that we offer an exceptional and cost-effective service.

Detailed Telephone Consultation

Carried out by an experienced professional (Coaching Approach); an impartial companion who takes the time and effort to recognise your true qualities and traits.

When your CV is sent to a hiring manager, it is not only your skillset, experience and personality that counts, but your presentation of it – formatted in a legible style.


Digital Copies

You will receive digital versions of your CV (Word and PDF files) via email on the same day it’s completed. This conveniently allows you to print, edit and easily share (email/upload) you’re CV. For those without email addresses – we provide these files on a memory stick for you. Unlike other CV consultancies, we do not charge you an extra fee, for these digital files.


Keywords

Keyword maximised for recruitment database systems.

The primary application within any recruitment management suite is an applicant tracking system (ATS); an applicant tracking system simplifies the recruitment life cycle by automating the hiring process - from receiving online applications and reviewing resumes, to interviewing candidates and on-boarding new hires. It is believed that approximately 65 percent of all mid-sized companies were using some form of ATS in 2012, and that number is growing as more companies adopt HR technology.


Printed Copies

Many employers still request CVs by post rather than email; we provide you with 3 copies printed on Watermarked Cotton Fibre Paper sent to you in a hardback envelope via recorded delivery.


12 months CV revisions
