Catriona Herron Watt – CV Saviour: Resumes That Rise Above The Rest

CV Saviour Professional Resume Writing Service

We believe EVERYONE can get the job they want. We help people get there, by writing brilliant resume and career marketing documents that get them invited to job interviews. 

Our History

“I established CV Saviour in London in 1997 as a professional CV writing service, after initially struggling to crack the UK employment market, despite being armed with 10 years work experience in medical and health-related fields, and two qualifications.” 

“I was lucky to get work with some amazing employers who supported my career aspirations, and my training and development. After getting some coaching, mentoring and résumé writing training from some of the best in the business, in my spare time, I began helping other newcomers to the UK, mature-age graduates, the unemployed, retrenched and those returning to work after extended absences.” 

“After years of marketing professional services and partnerships for US, UK, and Australian organisations, for the past 7 years my focus has been on branding, repositioning and marketing people through their résumés and online profiles to assist them with their next career move.  I now offer a professional CV writing service for Australian job seekers. That’s where we can help you too.”

Certified Professional Resume Writing Service – Australian-based, Operating Worldwide

Did you know that in Australia, resume writing is an unregulated industry, meaning anyone can hang their shingle and set up business as a resume writer? Are you willing to put your career and earning potential in the hands of just anyone? We didn’t think so. That’s why all our professional resume writers and proofreaders are bachelor degree-qualified at a minimum, highly experienced, with additional qualifications, and experience gained in Australia, the US, and the UK, with qualifications in Human Resources, Commerce, Engineering, Business, Marketing, Communications, and Journalism. All have the added advantage of experience in the recruitment and selection of staff, from graduate through to C-Suite.

The advice we provide is based on our 20 years experience as professional CV writers. Our Principal is one of only 16 Certified Advanced Résumé Writers (CARW) in Australia, and one of only a handful worldwide who acquired certification at Gold Pass Level.

We follow the standards of the Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA), Career Industry Council of Australia (CICA), the  Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI), Career Thought Leaders (CTL), and Career Directors International (CDI), all of which we are members or affiliates of, and with whom we complete our annual continuing professional development (CPD).

While we’d love to be able to guarantee you a job, we can’t. If you’ve been talking to resume writers who say they can, you’d want to be asking them how on earth they can guarantee that! What we CAN guarantee you is that you’ll get a much better CV than the one you’re working with now, and we can guarantee you that we’ll do everything we can within our power to go over and beyond to exceed your expectations. And we’ll provide you with the BEST advice in the market, on the market as it right now. We’re not a resume writing factory. Our success hinges on yours, and we’ll do what it takes to make you happy with the outcome of what we produce for you.

Our Clients

We have very high standards, and so do our clients.

Every day, we work with clients across all industry sectors, from school leavers and new graduates to chief executives. Just like you, they don’t always want to advertise the fact that they’ve used a professional resume and LinkedIn profile writing service to help them land the job, and we are 100% committed to respecting their privacy. There are 3 things all our clients have in common though – they want the best; they want a partner with a proven track record of success, and they want to be presented in the best light possible, so that they can achieve their career dreams. That’s why Stanford University chose us to write LinkedIn profiles for their MSx Sloan Fellows, why Uber asked us to present to them as part of their Momentum program, why we work with NewsCorp and why  Financial Services Institue of Australia (FINSIA).
