The Cost of CV Writing Services

Summary

If you have been looking around for a CV writing service you will have noticed that prices vary considerably and may be wondering why. The CV & Interview Advisors (that’s us) were one of the early entrants into the world of CV writing and have been around for many years.


If you have been looking around for a CV writing service you will have noticed that prices vary considerably and may be wondering why. The CV & Interview Advisors (that’s us) were one of the early entrants into the world of CV writing and have been around for many years. We consider ourselves an authority on our industry and all things related to job hunting and would like to shed some light on this issue.

For us, it is a simple question of economics; a CV (if done properly) takes a few hours to write, we estimate between 4 to 6 hours depending on the level of seniority of our customer. If you factor in the time we spend talking to our customers to extract information about their skills, achievements and career history then 6 to 8 hours plus follow up would be typical. Now ask yourself what kind of person you would want writing your CV, someone who works for minimum wage or a highly qualified senior level person who can add value to the process.

If you make some assumptions as to what a highly qualified senior level person would expect to be paid for 6 to 8 hours work, it is clear that major compromises would need to be made to produce a CV for anything less that £200.

If you were to engage the services of a Plummer, Electrician or even a specialist Gardener, you would expect to pay at least £200 for a days work and that’s a conservative estimate! Proper CV Writers should come from a HR, Recruitment and / or Senior Management background and have the writing skills of an Author or Journalist; this level of expertise just cannot be bought for £50.


The CV & Interview Advisors Professional Level Service costs between £199 and £399 + Vat. If you are interested in further information, please contact us on 01274 408 222 or email us at info@cvandinterviewadvisors.co.uk
