Transform your career with City CV & Starfish

Specialist Not For Profit Expertise

City CV clients have secured exceptional roles at all levels of seniority in the not-for-profit sector. Our team of consultants are experienced at hiring at every level including CEO, Executive Directors and board positions. Our writers and coaches collaborate to fuse their knowledge of crafting and finessing CVs for these sectors with an understanding of how to navigate the job market and stand out and be memorable at interview.

Experts in your field

Working in collaboration with Starfish Search, we know how employers in the not-for-profit sector recruit the strongest talent – the language they use, the values they seek, and the techniques and strategies that will boost chances of success both on paper and in person at interview.


Industry insight:

We know how hiring decisions are made across UK and international charities, academia and the public sector and what employers need to see on paper, online and in person.


Proven track record:

Our clients have secured roles in organisations, including the United Nations, British Council, NHS, Local Government, WHO, Russell Group Universities, Ombudsman Services, the Civil Service, the FSA, Save the Children, Medicine Sans Frontiers, Oxford University, Sport England, International Red Cross, Housing Associations, the National Audit Office and other NGOs.

Transform your career

We understand how to shape your CV and LinkedIn profile to enable employers to recognise and have confidence in your abilities and organisational fit. We assist in producing your promotional material to ensure it has maximum impact with potential employers.


Secure a new role faster:

Learning how to market yourself on paper takes expertise, practice and years of training. We create your CV from start to finish in 7 working days. We also offer a 48-hour express CV writing service.

Mitigate your daily opportunity cost:

Maintaining the status quo has a negative impact on your financial and psychological well-being. Our clients profit from a healthy return on investment within a week of starting their new role.


Increase your earnings:

Your new professionally written CV will position you as a competitive candidate, a formidable contender for roles with higher remuneration and greater influence.

“Thanks for assigning such a great team member to work with me, my CV and then with my LinkedIn profile. He has great interpersonal skills, adapts well, is fast and does give one the feeling being in ‘good hands’. He must be one of the best in your team! I thank you very much for staying in touch and for coordinating the effort to get me a professional CV and I think a good LinkedIn profile.”
Martin, Senior Charity Executive

“I am super happy about my experience with City CV, which helped secure a new senior position, notwithstanding current market circumstances. In addition to the CV and LinkedIn consultation, I had various career and interview coaching sessions with Nadia and Tony, which have all been precious to me in order to succeed the several rounds of interviews. Professional and reliable at all times, I highly recommend City CV. “
