Professional CV writers can create a CV for you that will win you more job interviews than a CV you produced yourself
Should You Write Your Own CV?
Just think – your CV may have to beat 100s of rival applications for every job you apply for. It must be nothing short of excellent, with its good looks matched by attention-grabbing content that sells you to an employer. How well it is researched and written will make the difference between gaining an interview or being rejected at the earliest stage. Ask yourself :
- Do you know what employers are looking for when short-listing for interview?
- Can you evaluate the skills, talents, experience and achievements you should include on your CV?
- Just as importantly, do you know what should be left out?
- Do you have the skills that professional CV writers have to have to write a truly outstanding CV?
If your answer to any of the above is ‘no’, then you should consider using a CV writing service to prepare your CV. A professionally produced CV is an investment in your future and can save you a lot of time, effort and disappointment by helping you to get the job you want. With employers keen to recruit you, it will also enable you to raise your next salary by improving your bargaining position.

Why You Should Avoid Inferior CV Writers
Many CV writing services do not include a telephone consultation and only spend one to two hours working on your CV. This is unsatisfactory, because not even the best writer can produce a great CV in such a short time. All you will receive is a regurgitated version of your old CV.
These CV services lack the expertise to identify your skills, experience and achievements, because they don’t have sufficient recruitment knowledge. As they often lack advanced copywriting skills, the CV content will not highlight your finest and most relevant strengths as a candidate. The result is a weak CV that fails to command the attention and interest of employers. You will gain fewer interviews and will spend longer finding a job. The job you get may not be the one you could have gained and may pay less than you are worth. Worse still, you may not find a job at all.
The majority of such CV services are comparatively cheap, ranging from £30 to £200 per CV. Like any other service, you get what you pay for – by the time overheads are covered, there will not be much left to pay a skilled interviewer / CV writer. You should expect to pay at least £60 an hour and the process should take at least 3 to 5 hours, depending on how much experience you have.
Our CV Writing Services
Just like any other well-operated professional service, Bradley CVs charge an hourly rate. This is currently £75 per hour. Each service is charged at a fixed fee, so you know exactly what you will be paying in advance. Your CV will be designed by one of our professional CV writers to help you land a job by showing an employer exactly what you have to offer and why they should interview you. If you have a specific deadline, please mention this when you order.
Our 2-page Starter CV is suitable for students, recent graduates and those who have never worked full-time. We will identify what needs to go into your CV during a 30 to 45 minute telephone consultation. Next, we will spend about 3 hours writing your CV. We will email you a proof copy within two to five days. We will then make any required changes after a follow-up telephone call, before emailing you the final version. The Starter CV service is £249 (this is the fully inclusive price, there are no additional charges).
“Thank you for the excellent CV, it looks great. With the CV you wrote for me, I applied for 7 graduate level jobs, obtaining 4 interviews and was offered 2 jobs.”
-- Miss Blyth
High Profile CV
If you have ever worked full-time then you may want to consider our High Profile CV. A telephone consultation of approximately 45 minutes is a vital part of this service. Our professional CV writer will spend over 5 hours on your CV, identifying your specific career aims and targets, and tailoring your individual strengths and experience to meet the employers’ needs (if you need a 3-page CV, we spend 7 hours on it.).
We email you a proof copy within two to five days of the consultation. A follow-up call then allows us to discuss any changes you require, before we email you the final version. The 2-Page High Profile CV service is £397 (this is the fully inclusive price, there are no additional charges). If you feel that you need a 3-page High Profile CV, then this is £497.
“Just wanted to let you know that I have been offered a fantastic job. My new CV created so many
opportunities for me, for every job I applied for, I secured an interview. It gave me back the confidence I'd lost and I was able to be more selective
about which jobs I applied for.
Even now that I have accepted this new role, I am still being contacted daily regarding new roles. It was definitely money well spent and I have recommended you highly to many other friends and colleagues.”
-- Sheree Halliday
Our outstanding 2 or 3-page Premier CV is for people who require the best possible CV and for people who are pursuing the most sought after jobs, for which competition is very fierce, with as many as 200 to 300 applicants.
Our professional CV writer will research, prepare and write a superb CV that immediately grabs the attention of senior decision-makers, allowing you to attain that much coveted interview. The telephone consultation takes about 90 minutes, twice as long as for the High Profile CV. Talking to you at length allows us to uncover a far larger amount of vital information about your background. We will conduct an in-depth analysis of this material, before writing a far more distinctive CV, using our proven copywriting skills and detailed knowledge of employers’ requirements.
We spend a total of 8 hours, the equivalent of a full working day, writing a 2-page Premier CV (this compares to just over 5 hours for a High Profile CV). If you order a 3-page Premier CV, we spend 11 hours preparing it. A 2-page Premier CV is £597 (this is the fully inclusive price, there are no additional charges), while a 3-page Premier CV is £797.
“My friends thought I was mad to spend £600 on a CV, but with the help of your CV, I secured an interview
for a job that I wouldn't have been considered for with my previous CV.
They offered me the job, which pays an extra £45,000 more than my previous job! My friends don't think I'm mad anymore, as I turned a £600 investment in myself into an extra £45,000 per year.”
-- Kerr Wells
Your Finished CV
We guarantee that you will receive an outstanding final product. We will email you proof copies and the final version of your CV in Microsoft Word format. This is the standard format required by both employers and recruitment agencies.
Writing Your Cover Letter
You should make an impact the second that an employer sets eyes on your application. It’s vital that your email cover letter makes the employer want to read your CV, by clearly linking your most relevant skills, experience and achievements to their real needs.
Bradley CVs can write you a general cover letter, a letter for a speculative application, or a letter in response to a particular advert. Our consultants will spend up to two hours expertly composing the letter after completing your telephone consultation. You can receive a £30 discount if you order a letter at the same time as your CV, meaning you pay £149 instead of the usual £179.
Preparing for Interview
Are you worried about missing out on a job at the salary level you want, just because you lack the necessary skills to find the job, handle the interview and negotiate a starting salary upon being offered the job. If so, then we have a full range of services that can help you.
