WHY PAY FOR CV SERVICES?
Why would you ever pay for CV services when you can do it yourself? Hmmm – good question. Let me counter it with one of my own. Did you know that it can take a recruiter less than ten seconds to make an initial decision on your CV? Ten seconds. That’s an incredibly short amount of time to make a big impact. Which means the question you should really be asking is “Have I got a CV powerful enough to pass the ten second test?”
How do you know if you pass the test? If you’re getting interview requests then your CV is doing exactly what it needs to, and you don’t need my CV services or help.
But if you’re not getting interview requests, one reason could very well be that although you have the skills for the role, although you might be the perfect fit, your CV is just not telling or selling that story to the recruiter. Your CV is your first introduction to your new employer. It needs to be impressive enough to leave them wanting more, needing to meet you, hoping that you might just be the missing piece of their puzzle.
That’s where an independent, professional CV writing service is worth investing in. Because, although you might have exactly the right qualities for the job you’re applying for, that’s not what your CV is telling the recruiter. CVs are hard to get right. And let’s be honest, they can be boring to update, a tedious chore on your to-do list when you’ve got better things to do.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Let’s have a chat, and then you can let me do what I’m great at, while you go and do something fun. In no time at all I’ll work my magic and you’ll have a CV that looks sharp, professional, that shows just how awesome you are at what you do, and that makes the recruiter keen to find out more and offer you that magic interview.
WHY PAY HEENA FOR CV SERVICES?
I’ve been working in a professional services environment for over twenty years (oh god, that makes me sound old, doesn’t it!). I’ve been a recruiter, a mentor and a coach for many people in many companies, including over a decade at a Big 4 audit firm, finance companies, manufacturing companies and the service industry. I’ve read through hundreds of CVs. I’ve conducted countless interviews. I know how it works and I know what recruiters look for, because I’ve been one.
I’ve been on the other side too – I still work as a contractor in the finance industry, and my own CV has a 100% success rate – it has got me an interview for every job I have applied for. That’s the role of a strong CV.
As well as all that I’m a writer. I know my way around words. I love weaving magic, painting a picture through a cleverly crafted paragraph. I can help you create the right impression on paper. I love the transformation, it gives me a real buzz – and that’s what makes me so good at it! Trust me – updating your CV has never been so much fun!

LinkedIn Profile – £99.

All personal statement and CV writing options include three revisions, and a final word and pdf copy of the statement and/or CV.
We start with your current CV, a questionnaire and a fact-finding Skype/Zoom conversation so I fully understand what you need and can deliver on it.
(And if you really can’t face completing the questionnaire, for an additional fee we can have a longer Skype/Zoom session where I take down all your details so you literally have to do no typing at all!)
