How do you justify your prices? Some of your competitors are much cheaper

Although we are not the most expensive CV writers on the web; we certainly aren't the cheapest.

We feel that we justify our prices through the following reasons;

We employ talented, experienced professional CV writers with extensive recruitment knowledge - The best CV writers demand premium prices and we are willing to pay them in order to provide the best possible service to our customers.

In order to create an interview winning CV, you need a writer who understands the job market thoroughly, and has the skills to extract the necessary details from you that will impress your target employers. 

If you are paying a company a cheap price to write your CV, chances are they will not be able to afford to hire a professional writer with the necessary recruitment and CV writing experience for you service.

We are trusted throughout the careers industry - Our CV advice is featured on some of the web's biggest career sites such as Guardian Careers, CV Library, Total Jobs, Business Insider and The Independent - Find out more about our team and credentials on our About page

We take the time to get to know you - Our market leading consultation process means that we extract the important information from you that employers want to see in a CV.

Your writer will work closely with you via telephone and email to ensure that they understand your work fully and no important facts are left uncovered.

A shocking number of our competitors don't offer a consultation at all which means all they are doing is reformatting your CV and giving it a spell & grammar check.

Our service goes a lot deeper because we want to make CV's that win interviews - not just ones that look nice.

Can I add a cover letter or LinkedIn profile?

Absolutely. Once you've spoken to us for your initial CV review you can order your CV re-write and also add a LinkedIn profile or a cover letter.

Once you've made your order, you will receive an order confirmation email and then we will assign your CV to one of our professional CV Writers who has experience in your industry.

Your CV Writer will then contact you (usually within a few hours) to begin the consultation process.

What is the process?

Our CV Writing Service process is very simple:

Firstly we review your CV with you free of charge, before you make any decisions - this can be done via telephone or email


1) Place your order and you will receive an email confirmation, followed by contact from your writer to introduce themselves, ask some preliminary questions and book in your consultation.


2) Your writer will call you to carry out your consultation. This usually takes 30min - 1hr and will cover your work history, skills, knowledge, achievements and target roles.

It is helpful to have an example of a typical role that you may look to apply for the consultation.

3) Once your writer has gathered all the necessary info from you, they will re-write your CV from scratch in 2 working days and deliver it to you for review.

4) If you require any revisions, your writer will work with you to perfect the CV until you are 100% happy.

How long does it take?

Our CV writing service usually takes between 2-4 working days from order to final delivery.

One day for the initial review and booking in the consultation, then a further 2 days for the CV to be written, sometimes followed by another day for revisions. We are aware that some of our competitors offer quicker turn-around times but our service is focused on quality rather than speed.

What payment do you accept?

We accept secure payment through Stripe which allows you to pay with all major credit & debit cards through a secure payment gateway.

We also offer monthly payment options to spread the cost over 3 months.

How can you improve my CV?

We determine what your target employers need from candidates, then work with you to extract your most relevant talents and communicate them through your CV

With our dedication to tailor your CV towards your target market of employers and recruiters - we can improve your CV in a multitude of ways:

  • After a thorough consultation, we will completely rewrite your CV from scratch with a professional outlook that will provide a lasting first impression
  • Formatting and structure that highlights the details employers look for
  • Explaining how your actions have made positive impacts on your employers by demonstrating and quantifying your value
  • Perfect spelling and grammar as well as removal of unnecessary information and cliché phrases which may detract from your talents
  • Key word optimisation to ensure your CV is found in database searches and a punchy writing style that will keep readers interested
  • Our CV writing service guarantees a polished professional looking CV with content that will compel employers to contact you

Why don't you offer a 24 hour turn-around?

We simply don't feel that 24 hours is enough to provide a quality professional CV writing service.

A 24 hour service from one of our competitors will simply get you a reformatted CV with a spelling & grammar check, but that's not good enough for our customers.

We take the time to get to know you and extract the important information that is needed to create an interview-winning CV.

We also put in an extensive amount of time, effort, research and proof reading into each and every CV we write, so that it's perfect by the time it reaches you.

How well do you know my industry?

The StandOut CV team consist of a huge network of professional CV writers who work on a permanent or freelance basis.

Each CV writer specialises in one or more industries for the following reasons:

  • They have worked directly within the industry themselves for a number of years
  • They have recruited within the industry for a number of years

Either way they will have a full understanding of your industry including terminology, expectations, culture, job types and more. 

We will always pair you with a writer who experience in your field. If for any reason we do not have a writer with the experience that you need - we will not take the work on

This means that once we have delivered your professional CV, you can ask us to make as many changes or corrections as you like, as many times as you like, until you are 100% happy with your new CV.

Once you have agreed that you are happy with the CV and start using it, we cannot make further changes.
