How to write a good CV, UK

Writing a good CV is the difference between getting to the shortlisting stage of a job seeking opportunity or not. If your CV is not able to get you to the interview, you cannot be offered the job. But CV writing is a skill in itself. As a professional career coach and CV writer, I help people not only discover their right career paths to find work they love but also ensure they have all the skills required to get a tangible job offer. 100% of Mapleleaf Vision clients who have completed the bespoke ‘Beyond the Crossroads” career coaching programme have had success – all are in new roles or completely new careers that they are thriving in, and love.

The Mapleleaf Vision blog has lots of free advice and articles on writing CVs, interview tips and information about finding your dream job. Below are a collection of blogs on the subject of CV writing to help you write a great CV.

I first worked with Will whilst I was a junior member of a teaching team. I worked closely with him for around three years and he became a true mentor to me. During this time Will helped encourage me to discover my own leadership style and he mapped out what it takes to be successful. I highly recommend Will for life and career coaching.

Will is a professional, natural leader who manages to make you feel at ease. He manages to be both emphatic and encouraging, whilst also managing to challenge you to find your own answers. Will’s approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. Working with Will has allowed me to address challenges I was facing and he brought a wealth of resources and practical tools to help me set goals, clarify my values, and explore avenues right away. Even though I left teaching 5 years ago, I still seek out Will for his help and guidance and I appreciate his versatility as a thought partner, ally, and coach. Our sessions are always productive and efficiently run, which is perfect for someone who is juggling many priorities! Will brings great communication, professionalism and quality to his work and I highly recommend him as a life/business coach.

Will at Mapleleaf vision fitted me in for a last minute decision-making session that I needed to make ASAP re. a job offer / career change. He was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff! He unpicked things that I could never have done on my own. I’m so grateful to him & will be highly recommending him to everyone! Where there is a ‘Will’, there’s a way! Thank you, Will. You truly have a gift.
