CV Refinery

We strive to remove all barriers and obstacles to finding the perfect role. In times of stress it can be difficult for employees to focus on the positives and articulate the vast array of skills and benefits they will bring to their next employer.

Our team will refine every employee’s CV to reflect their aspirations as they embark on the next stage of their career. It is a simple, three-part process that will result in a compelling, application-ready CV. Our focus is to ensure each CV reflects and meets the expectations of their target role.

Wellbeing & Mental Health Support

Redundancy has a ripple effect on all aspects of people’s
lives. The shock of a job loss triggers immediate anxiety and
impacts everything from self-confidence to family finances.
For many, the pressure is overwhelming, and the overriding
question is: ‘What do I do now?’.

City CV offers vital practical and emotional support to tackle
the stress, financial worries and personal/family issues that
arise from redundancy. We regularly run mental health
masterclasses and have almost 100 wellbeing-related e-learning
modules and articles on the Career Refinery Portal & App.

Our Wellbeing & Mental Health Support Helpline provides a
safe space ‘outside the workplace’ where exiting employees
can freely discuss concerns to help bolster resilience. We put
your people in touch with one of our wellbeing coaches. They
offer short term 30-minute wellbeing sessions and
will advise on referrals if necessary.

“The support City CV gave to my team and I, at a very difficult time, was invaluable. As a business leader, redundancies have to be one of the hardest situations to be involved in, for all concerned.

City CV’s practical advice and compassionate approach helped my staff feel better prepared for the changes they were facing and more positive about their future prospects.”

Alison Newman

Head of Finance Business Partnering, British Airways

“No one could have prepared the hospitality
industry for the devasting impact of Covid-19. As an employer we wanted to ensure that we supported those people within our business who were impacted by redundancy in the best way we could.

City CV are a natural partner for us. Their specialist team have provided practical and emotional support to our people when they needed it most. The feedback has been extremely positive.”

Sue Stephens

Senior Resourcing, Pizza Hut Restaurants

“We employed City CV’s professional services to help support our colleagues who had selected voluntary redundancy. We wanted to provide them with assistance to find a future role and City CV provided an excellent service which provided a ready-made, fully coordinated programme delivered by a career consultancy.

Their knowledge and experience and the support they provided has made a huge difference to those that have used the service.”
