CV Appraisal

 

Not sure if your CV is up to scratch? If you really want to know whether we can add value, send us a copy of your existing CV. If you want expert guidance on tweaking your CV then for a small fee we will carry out a brief appraisal of your CV by telephone or email, highlight any problems and advise on any simple improvements you can do yourself.

​Personal Consultation

 

One of the unique features of our service is accessibility: you are welcome to come in and see us face to face if you wish. Many of our clients have no details prepared or may simply prefer to be personally involved in the compilation of their CV. If you have any queries or wish to discuss any aspect of your CV, or you just want to talk to a real person - then a face to face consultation is for you.

CV Makeover

 

Think your CV is OK? Maybe you have the knack of selling yourself on paper and don't feel the need to completely revise your CV. The CV Makeover is a good way of letting us refine and polish your existing CV without the expense of full CV Compilation. Please note that this option is only a reworking of your existing CV and is only suitable if your CV is above average to begin with. We would need to take a look at your current CV to determine if this option is suitable for you.

Application Forms

 

If you are struggling with those awkward job application forms which require a personal statement or answers to criteria-based questions, we can help. We have years of experience in dealing with these kind of applications. Prices for this service can vary depending on the amount of input required. Just send us the details of the job you are applying for or give us a call, and we will be happy to provide a quotation.

UCAS Applications

 

Most university applications in the UK are now processed via UCAS (the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). Part of the application  involves writing a personal statement. We can advise on what information should be included and assist in preparing the statement for you. Please note that this is a bespoke service. Please call for a quotation.

CV Compilation

 

For a really professional CV, you need full CV Compilation using one of our own layouts. We recommend appropriate layouts from our portfolio of original in-house templates and take care of wording, formatting and presentation.
 

CV Clinics

 

The Write Stuff operates CV Clinics at some of the UK's largest recruitment events and careers fairs. Our expertise has enabled us to establish an unrivalled reputation amongst exhibition organisers as the number one choice for providing professional CV advice at their events. Check out our News & Events page to see where you can visit one of our popular CV Clinics.

​Phone/Skype Consultation

 

If you need a personal consultation to compile your CV but cannot travel to our office, it is possible to arrange a consultation by telephone or Skype. This can be used in conjunction with sending us your existing details by email, or exclusively to give us your details verbally. Telephone consultations are generally shorter than face to face, therefore are better value for money and save the time and effort of travelling.

Cover Letters

 

Just as important as the CV itself, a professional cover letter can make all the difference to your job search. We will be pleased to compile a bespoke cover letter along with your CV, whether it is a generic (basic) letter to accompany your CV for multiple applications or a specific (targeted) letter for a one-off vacancy.

LinkedIn Profiles

 

LinkedIn is a powerful tool for networking and career development, and can be harnessed to assist in your job search. You can keep in touch with your colleagues, customers and wider professional network. With a professionally written profile, LinkedIn can help you keep abreast of where the jobs are and act as a shop window for your potential employers.

SERVICES

The Write Stuff is not just a typing service. Unlike other CV services, we don't just retype your information, ­ we tailor your CV to suit you and ensure that it actively sells you to potential employers. We compile your CV according to your individual circumstances, and take care of all the presentation, content and layout, using our own in-house templates which have a proven record of success. Once your CV is complete, we can also retain a copy on file for future updates and amendments.

We also offer a range of different service levels to cater for individual requirements.
