“I contacted City CV following my redundancy. I was previously in a senior role as Head of Security for a major global brand. I have never needed to rely on a CV before, having always secured roles through my networks or executive headhunters. However, in the COVID recruitment climate, my CV just wasn’t cutting it. I applied for a sizable number of “cold start” roles, but wasn’t getting the interview invitations.
Roll forward to August 2020 when I engaged City CV and within just over a week applied for my first role with my new CV…and I got it! I discovered retrospectively, that my CV and LinkedIn combination alone, got me onto a shortlist of 6 from over 240 applications. It was a long process…9 interviews, but it was worth it.
I have just received the offer and signed the contract. Not only that, but I have had a 28% annual income increase on my last position, which I would not have achieved otherwise.
I actually applied for one other role with my new CV as a back-up and was also invited for interview. I ultimately withdrew having now been offered this perfectly progressive career role.
When I first saw Victoria, she talked about ‘return on investment’. I absolutely agree. This was money well spent and I am now revitalized to begin adding value to my employer in the New Year, knowing that they respect the value of my skill set.
A big thank you to Karl, Victoria and the whole City CV team.”
“In the past decade, I have reached a few levels in the narrow competitive security consulting industry in low, medium and high-risk environments. I have used friends, family, and two CV writing agencies while preparing to excel through that time. Back in June 2021, I took the most challenging task since transferring my know-how and experience to corporate security in Europe. I needed an industry expertise agency that could prepare my CV to reflect my experience, character and capability.
City CV was recommended to me by another Global Head of Security, and I decided to take their 30min free call to understand better how they can support me. Fantastic Eleanor deconstructed my old CV, advising what was missing and where the improvements could be made. After the call, I was convinced that my new CV would be done from scratch and in line with industry requirements and the job I wanted to compete for. I then filled out my pre-consultation notes before a consultation call. What amazed me with my writer was his in-depth knowledge of my industry and how focused he was to extract details of my past projects and achievements. On top of that, he provided advice and guidance on how I could potentially approach in job search in an already competitive industry.
The end product came in a short time, and I put it to the test. Having ATS friendly CV saved me time, and soon enough, I started to receive calls from some big corps. In total, I have narrowed my dream employer to three major companies in the banking, technology and commercial real estate sector. That accounts for twelve rounds of interviews and two offers. I could note each time talking to interviewers was their genuine interest in my experience, which was now thanks to City CV well presented, quantified, and reflected my achievements.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending City CV service for peers in the security industry. I well understand how challenging is to present ourselves to the commercial sector while transitioning from service to the corporate world. I know 100% that I will be using City CV services when the time comes to progress in my department.“
