Executive CV Service FAQs

How many pages should an executive CV be?

You’ve probably already been told that a CV shouldn’t be more than two pages. For Director-level CVs, this rule doesn’t necessarily apply. Senior-level candidates tend to have more experience than other candidates. Therefore, a three- or four-page CV is perfectly acceptable – particularly if you have a technical background.

Who is this service for?

Our executive service is for clients seeking senior-level positions. Examples include: CEO, CTO, CFO, Company Director, Operations Director, IT Director, Marketing Director and Business Development Director. If you’re not sure, please contact us first, or submit your CV for a free evaluation.

Can I see some example executive CVs?

Should I create multiple variations of a CV for Director-level jobs?

Ideally, yes. If you’re targeting a specific vacancy, you’ll need to stay on point throughout the CV. For example: if you are applying for a job as Marketing Director, but some of your career covers IT, place more of a focus on the relevant employment and keep the “target” consistent throughout. If you’ve got a mix of experience, and aren’t targeting one particular role, a speculative version of your CV should work fine (and can be tweaked later if needed).

First impressions count!

As with any CV, the first impression is the most important (and probably more so when applying for Director-level vacancies). A clean and easy-to-read executive CV format is imperative. Avoid opting for overly-fancy formatting or images.

Value proposition through numbers

Competition is fierce. In 2016 Business Insider UK published figures on applications per role. Morgan Stanley, for example, received 8,000 applications for around 100 positions in one year.


We will create a CV to effectively leverage and promote your quantifiable achievements (rather than being purely skills and responsibilities based). An executive CV should show what you did, why you did it, and how this made a difference. As Peter states in the video above, rewriting “responsible for increasing sales”, to: “increased sales by 45% in six months through the introduction of targeted promotional campaigns” is a quick and easy way to increase your CV's impact.

Comments From Customers

"There was constant communication from the start. The resultant cv and linkedin profile were professionally written and far superior to my humble effort. I found this company from a trust pilot review, there are a lot of organisations who do this and it can be difficult to chose the right one, from my research, other providers can be a waste of money." Doreen M.
"Refreshed my cv for exec role. Although I'd added all the tips that you read about to enhance your cv over the years, I really needed some professional help to breathe new life into it for a particular exec role that was on offer. Not only did Lee pick it up quickly but he very cleverly refreshed the content, brought it back to the key salient details, and tailored it brilliantly to the specific job description that I'd sent him. Not only that but he worked late into the evening to get it finished as I was on a tight timescale. I suspect he also reviewed the firm that I'm talking to to add some key aspects to the cv that will really make it stand out to them. Superb service." Nick Robinson
"It really makes a difference! I am a Sales Executive and after 14 years of working for the same company I decided to look for a change in my career. I applied for many jobs during almost two years with little or no success. At first I was skeptical about this kind of services but once I saw the CV they prepared I was impressed. The CV said exactly the same thing as the one I had made before but it is written in a way that recruiters like. I had a 50% ratio in cvs sent/interviews and already a have a very interesting offer on the table. Best money ever invested in my career. It is probably more effective than a 20000 euro master course if you want to give a push to your career." Jamie G.
