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 - The best writers demand premium prices and we are willing to pay them in order to provide the best possible service to our customers.

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 webs biggest career sites such as Guardian Careers, CV Library and the Daily Mail - Find out more about our experience and credentials.

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.

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 (additional £70) or a cover letter (additional £10)

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.

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 we are about.

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.
