Founded by Paul Bradley, Bradley CVs was formed in 1993 to provide a specialist CV writing service for its clientele. Our aim is to create an imaginative
CV that will stimulate an employer’s interest in inviting you for that all-important job interview. Bradley CVs has built up considerable experience and
expertise in writing CVs that get results for clients from all backgrounds. As a leading authority on CVs we are regularly quoted in the national press,
including major articles in The Guardian, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Independent, etc. In addition, we also produced a CV
for BBC TV's Webwise TV Programme.
Why are our Consultants the best?
Our Consultants are hand-picked for their excellent knowledge of recruitment and their professional copywriting skills. Selected from 100's of applicants
our consultants know how to write a CV that will sell you to a prospective employer. We have turned down 100's of applicants who all claimed they could
write an excellent CV. These people typically worked for our competitors, or ran their own CV writing business, or worked in either recruitment or HR.
Why did we turn these people down? Because they just couldn't meet our high standards for preparing CVs. HR and recruitment personnel may be skilled
in recruitment, but they are are not normally skilled in copywriting and selling your skills and experience to an employer. Whilst the people who have
traditionally written CVs come from a secretarial background and are therefore not skilled in recruitment or copywriting.
Our Consultants possess the unique blend of recruitment knowledge and copywriting skills that are required to produce an interview-winning CV. We only
choose the best, which means that you can rely on us to produce a CV that will get you noticed.
