Victoria spent her earlier career in global recruitment before joining Goldman Sachs and then Merrill Lynch, where she delivered insights that transformed recruitment strategy and influenced multinational resource allocation. In 2009 she founded City CV to bridge a market gap for top-quality CV and profile writing. Since then Victoria has grown City CV into an international client-focused business that empowers job seekers and helps companies to protect their most important resource – their people.
Frequently featured as a careers expert in leading media, Victoria regularly wins major international industry awards. She is in high demand as a keynote speaker at international events and team building days. She also runs workshop and webinar programmes for City CV’s corporate partners. Passionate about DE&I, Victoria is a regular speaker at women’s networks. Her original insights address the imposter syndrome, the impact of menopause on business success, setting boundaries at work, and staying visible in a hybrid world.
Today, Victoria and every member of the City CV team share a common goal – to change lives. Under Victoria’s leadership, City CV’s team of writers and executive coaches transform careers and guide businesses on how best to inspire, raise brand awareness, take care of the people they let go and optimise employee engagement.
