Contractors and Interim Managers have a hard time writing a CV due to the sheer number of roles that need to be included in their CV. It’s not unheard of to have a 6 pager and that’s before we start listing all the other challenges that you face when putting finger to keyboard. It’s also a different market to seeking a permanent job – your CV is your sales brochure and business case and the professionalism of your CV is synonymous with how you are perceived as a service provider.
Do you identify with any of the following statements?
One of the reasons that Contractors have their CV professionally written is to overcome these challenges and the good news is that we have developed three unique and innovative CV writing methodologies based on extensive research that are recognised by recruiters and companies as much more effective than the 6 page ‘monsters’ that many seasoned Contractors have.
In addition, you will no doubt operate as a business under a Ltd company banner with a view to providing services to your clients. If you are operating as a business then like all businesses, you should have professionally prepared marketing materials. In your case, that revolves around your CV and LinkedIn profile. This is why we have written over 4000 CVs for Contractors (your competition!).
Once we have your go ahead, we need to arrange a mutually convenient time to spend 2 hours discussing your career. This allows us to extract all the information we need to write your CV.
We go away and write your CV in the time frame agreed (usually 5 working days)
We email you the first draft of your new CV as a Word document.
We are happy to make any changes to your CV until you are 100% satisfied with the final document.
We will keep working on your CV until you are 100% happy and if at the end you are not, we will refund your money.

CVs need to be optimised for ATS’ (applicant tracking systems) which are programmed to search for certain pieces of information that is then regurgitated and presented to the recruiter or hiring manager in a summarised format. What the ATS finds on your CV and presents to the recruiter might be completely different to your intended message depending on what headings you use and where you include certain pieces of information.Read more
