  • Andrew is good at what he does. I was impressed with the expediency of the whole process; from him reviewing my CV, providing feedback and producing the polished finished product. Thank you Andrew.

  • StandOut CV really lives up to its name! It was a pleasure working with Jonathan. What I liked was that we could have phone conversation initially, that helped a lot to explain my background, achievments etc. In the end, I've to emphasize the outstanding service & the fact that it only took 3 days. Well worth the money!

    Terje Bohn
  • I would definitely recommend StandOut CV. I felt that Jonathan was extremely professional and helpful. To actually be able to speak to someone who knows what he is doing and give excellent advice. I felt that he listened and really tired to understand my experience. I definitely feel it has been money well spent

  • Andrew re-wrote my CV some time ago now and I haven't been applying for jobs. However, I saw a great job come up and I applied with my new CV. This shortlisted me for interview out of lots of people and then I got the job! Andrew's work is excellent, he really knows how you put you in your best light.

    Liz Beesley
  • Fantastic service and content! Andrew was patient with me, understood my background and provided a great product. Minor amendments and tweaks were performed with no hesitation and I would genuinely recommend them.

    Milena Murry
  • Excellent service from Nicolette. She was experienced in my field of work (IT contracting). I had a telephone chat that lasted well over an hour where we went through my cv in detail. Within two days I had a draft CV cut down from four pages to a much more focused two pages and the day after I had my linked-in profile and covering letter. I am extremely pleased Highly recommended. .
