Public, Social & Education
We work with individuals and organizations in academia, charity and the public sector.
These public-facing industries offer highly rewarding career opportunities. Each resume needs to capture the ways in which individuals make a difference to the communities they serve. Whether on the frontline with emergency services, a high-flying academic manager, running a policy unit or department or seeking a management or governance role in a charity, we can help isolate, identify and integrate those distinctive qualities and career history into a resume, LinkedIn profile and interview pitch that reflect each individual’s expertise and worth.
Many public sector job searches demand a highly specific approach with a tailored application and cover letter that encapsulates an individual’s ability to lead with initiative, their superior administrative capabilities, and their balanced approach to decision-making. At City CV, we know how employers in these areas prefer to recruit – 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.
We recognize the personal attributes that help candidates thrive in these fields – and we understand how to translate these into brilliantly effective, personal branding documents and a compelling interview pitch for promotion and professional advancement. We offer personal coaching sessions to help clients demonstrate their ROI, their cultural fit and potential to excel.
