Hi, I'm Lindsay and I am a freelance CV writer based in Hockley, Essex.
In 2018, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to leave full-time employment and be a stay-at-home Mummy to my beautiful daughter.
Fast forward 5 years and I now have a beautiful son too!
Now that they are both at school/pre-school, it's time for me to get back to my 'other' job.
My background is in HR and Recruitment within various sectors including Food Service, Automotive, Gaming and Betting, Health & Fitness, and Retail.
I have extensive experience in effective talent acquisition, performance development, and general HR process.
Writing your own CV is tricky....we're not great at highlighting our own achievements and shouting about how fantastic we are!
Job seeking and applications can be hard to navigate, and without a winning CV, it's even harder!
Get in touch today to see if I can help.
Your CV may need a few tweaks or it may need a complete overhaul, so text or email today.
Your CV should be an engaging document full of your career highlights, achievements, and relevant experience.
Your CV shouldn't be a carbon copy of your current job role description-it needs to demonstrate why YOU are the best candidate for the job!
Your CV also needs to consider the numerous applicant tracking systems that are out there!
I offer video consultations to fully understand your career history and, most importantly, your career goals! I then produce a new CV for you, specifically tailored to the sector or role you are aiming for.
Contact me today.
Depending on the organisation and the recruitment process, you may be asked to submit additional information in the form of a cover letter or personal statement.
This extra information gives the recruiter a feel for your personality and a better understanding of your career motivation.
It is really important to use the job role profile when completing this document, to ensure you submit the information the recruiter wants to see!
There will always be a 'person specification' or 'skills' section, and the cover letter is your opportunity to demonstrate your capability to fulfil the role.
Contact me today for any additional job application support.
We start with a video consultation to understand each other a little better and find out exactly what you need from your CV. This may be a general CV you can use for numerous roles or it may be a targeted CV for a particular role you have set your sights on! Once I have all the information I need, I will work some magic and send you a personalised CV to review.
All services and fees can be found on this website under the relevant tab. Depending on career level and specific requirements, fees start at £160.
I am proud of my work and believe I create fantastic CVs, however I am unable to come to the interview with you and answer all those tough questions. I can provide you with a CV in alignment with the role you are looking for, however it is up to you to convince the recruitment team that you are the person they have been looking for! I will try and weave as much of your personality into your CV as possible, but you need to sell yourself in person!
Once I have all the information I need from you, usually 5 working days.
