Career Refinery & Masterclasses
Our team adopts a nuanced and strategic approach, which fuses market knowledge with a deep understanding of recruitment techniques. Our specialist CV writers are also talented interviewers, who can draw out your employees’ strengths to build their personal brand and create a compelling CV story.
Marketing means standing out. We will arm your employee with exceptionally well researched and beautifully written personal promotional documents.
The City CV writing team are experts at articulating our clients’ USPs and creating powerful, keyword-optimised CVs, LinkedIn profiles, letters and bios that generate interviews.
Career Transition Coaching
Our Professional packages include proactive ongoing career support, which provides departing staff with a career companion. As needs change, the coach can adapt and refocus the transition plan. They can prepare interview strategies, discuss applications, advise on tailoring CVs and approaches for different roles – and be there to guide, support and encourage.
We individually match our career coaches to each employee to produce optimum results. That personal touch is a lifeline for exiting employees. It will allow them to progress quickly, making the right career decisions to locate and secure their new role.
This includes partnering with each employee to create, practise and deliver structured, strategic answers to a wide range of interview questions, helping the interviewer buy into ‘Brand You’. We will work hand in hand with each client to improve eloquence, overcome interview anxiety and increase personal credibility, gravitas and impact. Empowering negotiation techniques will help seal the deal.

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.”
“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.”
“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.”
