“Effective, efficient and very professional. The team turned around a great CV and LinkedIn profile in no time to meet my short time frames.

They were fun to work with, professional and I got the job!

Thank you team.”

Virginia Matassa


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.
