I left my corporate career 7 years ago to pursue personal interests and achieve a better balance between my work and personal life. However, I found myself looking to re-enter the corporate world after my children entered full time education and I’d sold my successful small business. Having been in a specific industry based primarily in the South East, I quickly found that both my career break and location were viewed with suspicion by potential employers looking at my CV.
Having spent some time with Inspired CVs identifying personal strengths and specifically the positive personal development I had achieved throughout the last seven years, we soon drew up a list of detailed transferable skills relevant to my targeted industry sectors. Not wishing to relocate, we identified local potential employers, and engineered my CV to highlight appropriate skills and experience for these recruiters.
I now feel in a strong and confident place to secure the senior post I am looking for and most importantly do not feel “on the back foot” needing to explain my career break. Thanks to all at Inspired CVs!

Having completed my degree and a further range of courses, I was looking for a highly professional CV to apply for some key positions overseas. I came across Inspired CVs, and was really impressed with the initial consultation and decided to go ahead with the process. I was amazed at how they extracted all of my relevant experience and managed to present it so concisely. I was delighted with the result, and Inspired CVs even helped me put together an application for the main job I wanted to land.
To my delight the employer responded within days and I am now working abroad doing what I love! I would recommend this service to anyone and have already done so!

I have now used the service of Inspired CVs on two occasions, once when I was faced with redundancy from a previous business, and then more recently when I wanted to move into a position within the oil & gas industry. I was successful in my applications each time thanks to Inspired CVs and I cannot speak highly enough about the business. They really stand out through their superb attention to detail as well as the professional quality and content they provide, and I have already endorsed the service to a number of people.

I contacted Inspired CVs looking for some help applying for a job I really wanted, but I didn’t think that my CV would even get me an interview. The consultant at Inspired CVs was extremely helpful, they really took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for, and created me a fantastic CV and covering letter. I was delighted when I was invited to an interview, but it was over ten years since my last one, so I immediately contacted Inspired CVs for interview coaching. At the interview, the coaching proved invaluable, the interviewer commented on how impressive my CV was, and I was offered the job the following day. I would highly recommend Inspired CVs to anyone looking for help to make their CV look professional, or those in need of some great advice on how to sell themselves in an interview.

“I would like to thank Inspired CVs for the help and excellent advice and for the work you did on my CV. It is now a very professional CV thanks to all your efforts. I would recommend you to anyone looking to improve their career prospects.”
Stuart, Sales Consultant
“The service has been excellent, it’s all come together really quickly which has taken a lot of pressure away from me and given me more time to focus on planning out possible jobs. I felt the advice Inspired CVs gave me in the office was great, it gave me direction for my next steps. The quality of the CV, Covering Letter and LinkedIn profile has been first class and I’m really happy with how quickly everything was put together. I will be back in touch in the near future for some more help.”

“Having used the same old format for the past 16 years on my CV, I realised it required some professional work to improve it and It was with some trepidation that realised it was going to cost money. I followed the example of a friend of mine and I contacted InspiredCV’s and I am delighted to report that the entire process from the first telephone call with Pauline, all the way through to the (very well polished) final draft was a painless, relaxed and exceptionally professional process.
The initial telephone consultation was very detailed and Pauline even offered to travel up to Aberdeen to see me in person (for no extra charge). That was not required as her evident skill is extrapolating pertinent information negated the need for a return trip to the Granite City.
My CV has literally been transformed and the in-house knowledge which InspiredCV’s obviously have has been brought out in the verbiage of a document which I am now very proud to send out to agents and potential employers. I can’t believe that I doubted the veracity of the benefits which a small proportion of a day-rate can bring to the document which will now make the difference between me getting an interview or not. I feel the balance has now been tipped in my favour.
I have no hesitation in recommending Pauline and her team at InspiredCVs”
HSE Engineer (Oil & Gas)
Having been faced with the reality of redundancy after 30 years of loyal service to the same company due to the relocation of the head office, I started to wonder about, and even doubt, my own ability in furthering my career. When I met with the consultant at Inspired CVs, he instantly made me feel at ease through his approachable, straight talking and professional manner, which made it so much easier through a very difficult time. The CV I received was excellent, while the interview coaching has helped my confidence grow and my motivation return. I have no hesitation in recommending Inspired CVs. Great job!
