CV-writers.org.uk is a professional CV writing service which offers a simple selection of CV writing options. Whether you just need an edit and reformat, something a bit more high impact, a consultation or covering letter, they have a range of documents to suit you. You can also invest a small amount of money in their Perfect CV writing toolkit, which outlines key changes you can make to improve your employment opportunities.
The range of services on offer is pretty limited, with no options to help you with interview preparations or other documents (besides cover letters). However, CV Writers do offer an editing service which revamps your current CV, which not too many other sites offer. Still at £80 this feels a little expensive.
Students and graduates can purchase an appropriate CV for entering the job market, for around £140, but immediate impression CVs (which come with a consultation) cost most, at £210. For the amount of money being paid, we generally expect a consultation as standard, so can’t help feeling that students are getting a bit of a raw deal.
The site claims that over 80% of its customers receive an offer for interview within 8 weeks. This is pretty good, although we’ve seen better odds elsewhere. They do offer a free CV review, which at least will provide you with some sense of where you might be going wrong, if you don’t wish to pay for a CV writing service. You could even check their CV writing toolkit (for just £10) and work on your CV for yourself.
The site’s blog contains a range of useful articles which are worth exploring. These posts are quite specific and include topics such as “great jobs which involve driving” or “how to sell yourself with no experience”, but there is some more general advice which ought to help you out.
Producing your CV takes around 5 working days from the time of any consultation, and they offer edits on the first draft. You can also provide feedback to your writer, which can help them out in the future. This is all fairly standard for CV writing services, though.
In short, CV-Writers.org.uk is a fine site to visit if you want your CV produced on your behalf. However, it is lacking options and some of its services feel a bit overpriced. Whist there are definitely a number of positives here, this service just fails to impress us when compared with so many other CV writing services on the market. It’s not a bad option, but there may be better ones around.
