CV writing

CV, Personal statements & Job applications

I offer two types of CV writing services – either a re-write of your existing CV or writing a new CV from scratch.

If you already have a CV ready and are unsure which option to choose, then please feel free to email me (attaching the CV as a (.)pdf document) and I can advice you about which option to choose, with no obligation.

A new CV will include:

– your contact details , a short personal statement (if needed), educational qualifications, work experience , key skills (tailored to the job), volunteer experience (and key skills gained), publications, help with choosing the correct referees for your application.

It will typically be 2 A4 pages, proof-read and provided to you in (.)pdf and (.)docx format, ready for submission.

Please email me at tutors@tutors-in-bristol.co.uk, or use the contact form to get in touch if you need a new CV. Typical turnaround times for new CVs are 3 working days (72 hours, excluding weekends and bank holidays).

Cost

A CV re-write will include:

Sentence organisation, grammar and spelling correction and proof-reading, along with suggestions for additional items that could be included in your CV, advice on CV layout.

Please email me at tutors@tutors-in-bristol.co.uk, or use the contact form to get in touch if you need a new CV. Typical turnaround times for CV re-writes are 2 working days (48 hours, excluding weekends and bank holidays).

You can combine a CV with a cover letter for  £35 (re-write) or £45 (from new)

 

Personal statements

I can write you a good quality personal statement, highlighting your key skills and work experience, to show you are the perfect candidate for the job. I will convey in words your enthusiasm for the job and characteristics that make you an ideal employee.

Please email me  at tutors@tutors-in-bristol.co.uk or get in touch via the contact form if you would like help with a personal statement. I will send you a summary sheet to complete that will form the basis of the personal statement.

Typical turnaround times are 3-5 working days (excluding bank holidays and weekends)

Cost
500 words maximum = £40 (or 1 A4 sheet, font: Arial, font-size:12, line spacing: single)
1000 words maximum = £60 (or 2 A4 sheets, font: Arial, font-size:12, line spacing: single)

I can also write longer personal statements, please ask me for a quote.

 

Job applications

Job applications can be quiet daunting, especially if you are new to the job market. I can help you with a personalised job application, tailored to the job and your skill set. I can also help you write speculative job applications (i.e. enquiring for a job with a potential employer).

Job applications can include:

1. a CV

2. a Cover Letter

3. Personal statement

4. Skill sets related to the job

5. Organisational skills (i.e. time management)

6. Publications

7. References

As each and every job application is unique and needs to be tailored to the job, please contact me for a no-obligation quote if you are interested.

 

Help with interviews
I can help you prepare for job interviews by coaching you through a list of relevant questions and information that you need to prepare in advance of the interview. Prices quoted on request. Please get in touch via email at tutors@tutors-in-bristol.co.uk, or use the contact form.
