I asked the CV House to help me produce the first CV I have ever really needed in a long corporate career. The service was very professional, prompt and courteous, and the result was an accurate, compelling and concise account of my key achievements and career history. I would not hesitate in recommending The CV House to other senior business leaders who need either to create or refresh their CV.

Very happy to recommend Janet. CV House provided hugely valuable assistance in 2015 putting together a CV summarising work and achievements in a highly specialised field. All done sensitively and efficiently.

Gordon Nardell QC
Barrister at 20 Essex Street.

Having decided to make the move to a ‘portfolio’ career, following a long career as an executive spanning public and private sectors, I had to completely redo my CV. I found it really difficult to start afresh and put together something that summarised my career and skills effectively so decided to get some outside help. Janet at the CV House did an exceptional job in taking previous CVs and letters of application, talking to me at length and then producing an excellent CV and other supporting documents that really fit the bill. Once I had the CV and started using it, I very quickly built up a portfolio of non-executive and chair roles across public, private and third sector organisations. I am very grateful to Janet for the help she gave me.

Roles include Chair, Slough Children’s Services Trust, Chair then NED, Minerva Education and Independent Member, Chair of Governors, Stafford University.  Previously Non-Executive Director, Birmingham Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Global Director of Education, Serco.

After a long executive career I have been building a portfolio of non executive directorships in different European companies. Since I never had to write a CV in my life, I decided to approach an external company to provide this service. I have been impressed with the quality and efficiency of Janet’s work during the whole process.

The initial discussion was very well prepared and focused on concrete contributions and achievements throughout my career. The first draft of the CV was excellent and required only minimal modifications. I feel very good about the structure and crisp content of the document, and with the outstanding feedback I have received so far.

Patrick de Smedt

I left the Army and was struggling to produce a CV that civilians could understand. With just a few hours’ probing with incisive questions, Janet Moran from the CV House produced an outstanding CV and Summary which subsequently led to me becoming Chairman of four companies. This was one of the best investments I have made and the return on it has been impressive. I could not recommend her strongly enough to anyone, such as myself, who is making a career change and needs to demonstrate transferrable skills.

Peter Gilchrist
Senior Independent Director and Chair, Remuneration Committee, Ricardo plc; Chair and Director of various other boards and previously Major General, HM Forces.

Janet provided an exceptional service when I required an updated CV and a LinkedIn profile.  She is very attentive and provides fresh impetus, which has resulted in an individual, interesting and professional CV. It is always difficult to write objectively and fluently about oneself but Janet can look at the information and collate all the relevant points. This is most certainly a service I will be recommending and using in the future. It has been remarkably stress free, easy and convenient and produced a CV I am proud to send on.

The CV House really changed the quality of my CV, making it into a document I’m really proud of.

Having completed the process of preparing my CV for the first time in nearly 30 years, I just wanted to formally express my appreciation of not only the final result but the process that you adopted. You extracted the key points in my career to date and expressed them in a succinct and positive style. I could not have prepared my own CV in the powerful and crisp way that you have achieved. I am actually proud of the result – a true compliment from someone who did not recognise the need. My sincere thanks.
