As former Big Four and FTSE 500 technology professionals, our dedicated IT&T team has specialist sector experience.
Information Technology & Telecommunications comprise the defining industries of today’s globalised world. IT&T drives innovation, transforms the ways in which we work, breaks down global barriers and facilitates international collaboration on a previously unprecedented scale.
The subsections of these industries determine the capacity of large multinationals and local enterprises, enabling them to flourish in response to customer demand. From Software, Infrastructure and Cloud Services, Cybersecurity and IoT to Data Science, the range of careers for IT professionals is constantly evolving.
The sector seeks technical knowledge, matched by advanced analytical and problem-solving capabilities together with the crucial softer competencies of effective team working and the ability to translate ideas into solutions.
In an internationally competitive environment, individuals are no longer tied to a particular location. Because they can work for any company from anywhere in the world, it is even more important for them to stand out from the crowd with a powerful CV, LinkedIn profile and interview pitch. This is where City CV can help.
In addition, City CV’s tailored career coaching helps crystallise personal career goals and shows how to secure the most fulfilling and rewarding roles at all stages of a career.
“Looking to reach the next level in my career, I found that despite my technical competency, I wasn’t best placed to communicate how my particular skill set would translate to the executive level. Initially sceptical of the merit of a professional CV review, I arrived at City CV after realising that the conversion rate for my applications was around 7% – not great.
The consultant I was given, Karl, who, contrary to my rather arrogant assumption, knew my industry backwards, and was able to walk me through my profile from the perspective of my target employers, and through one-to-one conversation, iterated through until we had a CV that communicated exactly what was needed – no more, no less.
The effect was immediate, with my conversion rate skyrocketing to 40%, 4 job offers, and ultimately a 38% salary increase. Naturally, I now consider the services of City CV as essential to my career progression as networking and conventional CPD. An absolute no-brainer, worth every penny – cannot recommend strongly enough.”
