About Me

I write and edit CVs, cover letters and supporting statements that deliver interviews. I create copy that hits the mark and provide targeted job search advice enabling people to reach their full potential 

You can benefit from:

  • My in-depth understanding of why some CVs deliver interviews and other don’t

  • Expertise in crafting LinkedIn copy to enhance your professional reputation and personal brand

  • Knowledge of the role of a targeted cover letter to complement and reinforce applications

  • Advice about customising CVs, and the key differences between direct and recruitment agency applications

  • Guidance and support that will give you the confidence to shine at interview

CVs and applications are screened in just a few seconds, and fine margins make a difference, so it pays to use a professional to leverage your skills and experience

My knowledge comes from running a professional recruitment business for over 20 years, enabling graduate to director level candidates to accelerate their careers through the provision of an expert, ethical and consultative recruitment service

I have other experience in international business management, business writing and PR, event management, business development and in-house recruitment

My broad experience coupled with specific recruitment and consultancy expertise makes me particularly well-placed to give you an edge in a competitive world, whether you need a new or rewritten CV, LinkedIn copy, a cover letter, supporting statement or job search advice.
