Professional Writing

Writing your own resume doesn’t come naturally. A professionally produced and structured resume benefits from expert scrutiny and industry insight. It will present each person’s distinctive attributes in a way that shows the value they bring to their future employer.

Our team adopts a nuanced and strategic approach, which fuses market knowledge with a deep understanding of recruitment techniques. Our specialist resume writers are also talented interviewers, who can draw out your employees’ strengths to build their personal brand and create a compelling resume story.

Our process is quite simply life-changing, involving an in-depth consultation with an expert, who has spent years perfecting the art of resume writing and who genuinely cares about each client and their future success.

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-optimized resumes, LinkedIn profiles, letters and bios that generate interviews.

Career Transition Coaching

At times of layoffs, corporation restructure and career transition, it is important for your business to offer support, promote change, inspire optimism and set the scene for a positive future. The way to achieve this is through tailored and professional career transition coaching and interview training.

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 resumes and approaches for different roles, and can be there to guide, support and encourage.

Career Coaching

Ongoing support from a skilled career coach brings clarity and composure to an uncertain environment.

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.

Interview Training

With a market average of 27 applications to secure just one interview, your people need to make the most of every opportunity. As part of the Professional Coaching Program, our tailored one-to-one interview coaching will provide the preparation and techniques your employees need to transform their interview success.

This includes partnering with each employee to create, practice 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.

We know that no two employees are the same. We create a specific development strategy for each individual.

Wellbeing & Mental Health Support

Being laid-off 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 being laid-off. We regularly run mental health
webinars 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, layoffs 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

“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 layoffs 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

“We employed City CV’s professional services to help support our colleagues who had selected voluntary layoffs. 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 program 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.”
