What our clients say

“After 15 years with the same company the idea of writing a CV – or even working with someone to create one – was very daunting. Kate made the whole process effortless. By dint of clever questions and active listening, and applying her own considerable business skills and knowledge, she created a marketing document that even impressed me! More importantly the head hunter who had asked for it said it was the best–constructed CV he had ever seen. I have confidently recommended Kate to several associates since, all of whom have been delighted in the result.”
Pamela L Taylor, Group Buying Controller, Furniture Village Ltd


“The CVs that Fiona has written are clear, succinct and compelling. She has an immediate grasp of what matters and what doesn't and not only does she present the candidate well in their CV, but her interview with them prepares them well for the real interview.”
Kim Crawford, Managing Director, Periscope UK Ltd


“Kate is a great communicator, very easy to work with, and extremely efficient and timely with the work she produces. I am delighted with the CV that she produced for me in that it is succinct and to the point, it lacks the clutter and ‘standard’ phrases that one often sees in a CV, and most importantly it stands out from the norm.”
David Szymanski, ex-Managing Director, Hanson Building Products. Now Non–Executive Director of the Building Research Establishment


“Having worked with Fiona over the last 12 months or so, we have found that candidates improved significantly their ability to get interviews with her well–refined approach to CVs. It is a service that is invaluable.”
Lesley Exley, Managing Director, Exley Hervey Executive Search


“Kate provided an excellent and professional service, which greatly assisted me in presenting my experience and achievements in a convincing and attractive way to prospective employers.”

Director, Ministry of Defence


“Fiona delivers sharp analysis, excellent ideas and a polished product, leaving no stone unturned until the client is completely satisfied. She's utterly reliable and a delight to work with.”

Lesley Hussell, Owner, Editing Edge


“My improved CV gave me the confidence to apply for positions I believe I would previously not have been considered for. I liked the thoroughness of creating it. I felt I was working with Kate to ensure that I was highlighting my best credentials and most useful experiences. She was able to recognise skills I had which had often been overlooked when I created my own CVs. I really was extremely happy with how it was created, and the finished piece.”

University Graduate seeking first permanent job


“I can highly recommend Fiona - she did a fantastic job of reorganising my CV. Before meeting with Fiona I had been looking for a new job for approx 6 months. Within two weeks of using her service I had three interviews and two job offers."
Giles Crosthwaite, Product Controller, Financial Services


“I secured a new role after being made redundant 2 weeks after posting my new Magic CV on and have just had my contract renewed for a further 12 months in what some might say is a difficult market (banking/mortgages!) Even better, I am earning more than in my previous job. I found the Magic CV service quick, efficient and effective. I have recommended Kate to 4 of my old team.”

Mike Collins, Business Development and Change Manager, Santander


“Fiona is inspiring and a more than capable person. In writing my CV she listened to my needs and asked relevant questions to glean the information that she needed to produce the finished product. I was delighted with the result as the format was clean and concise and it reflected my past career in a professional manner. Above all it presented my skills without them being hidden by nonsensical jargon.”
