Expert Resume, CV, LinkedIn & Business Consultant (ex-Big 4 EY/PwC)

"Stephen was phenomenal to work with. He was very professional and very supportive. His business acumen is top and he is an excellent writer. Highly recommend Stephen." (Client in Switzerland) A Resume Writer, Career Coach and Business Consultant with a Big 4 background in HR and Financial Consulting, Agency and In-House Executive Search and Recruitment, and built a high-turnover Commercial Business. I have worked with clients worldwide covering all sectors and business streams. I understand this from a recruitment background, a career consulting perspective, but also from my own hands-on experience overseeing all the operational and strategic aspects of a fast-moving commercial business. _____________________________________ RESUME, CV, LINKEDIN & RECRUITMENT SERVICES I understand what you do, how you do it, and can translate that into a high impact resume that will open the door to your next role. "Stephen is extremely competent. I had sent over 40 job applications without success, but had an interview request at the first job application after taking his expert advice! I’m extremely impressed and I’ll be recommending him to everyone who tells me they’re job hunting. Attentive and fast, thank you!" (Client in London) "Stephen is a very patient man with strong attention to details, I enjoyed working with him as he crafted a perfect resume for me...I got a lot of recruiters contacted me after just 2 days of updating my LinkedIn profile." (Client in the USA) The best piece of advice I can give you, is whether you work with me or someone else make sure it’s a consultant who has recruitment experience. You need someone who understands how a recruiter/hiring manager reads and assesses a resume, what are they looking for and how do you catch their attention immediately and make them thing, “great this is just what I’m looking for”. As a senior recruitment specialist, I have worked on hundreds of roles as a recruiter/hiring manager so I know exactly how the process works and what is going through a recruiter's mind when they read your CV, resume and covering letter. I take all this recruitment knowledge into my writing. I know what recruiters/hiring managers are looking for, how they read a CV/resume because I used to be one. These insights are the foundation of my CV / resume writing practice. I also have experience with ATS (applicant tracking systems) and how to design, format and write your CV / resume so that it isn't blocked/rejected by the software. I'm not a graphic designer or a professional writer pretending to understand recruitment or the hiring process. I'm an ex-recruiter who has read and assessed hundreds of CVs throughout my career who understands what hiring managers are looking for from you as a candidate, which is my clients are successful. My CVs and Resumes are written to be easily read, impactful and clearly highlight your relevant skills, experience and suitability for the role. I offer a range of services including: - CV and resume editing and writing service. - support writing application forms. - editing and writing LinkedIn profiles. - cover letters. - interview coaching. _____________________________________ BUSINESS WRITER & CONSULTANT Much of the work I do on Upwork is supporting clients with resume writing and other job-related documents but utilising my Big 4 Consulting and own commercial experience I help clients with a range of business writing services, including: - business proposals and tenders - business planning - grant applications - LinkedIn company profiles - copywriting, proofreading and editing - marketing and product materials - website content - Japanese / English translation services Falling back on my EY and PwC experience, my approach is always collaborative. I am always available to discuss the steps I am taking and always ensure that you as the client understand what I am doing and why. At the end of the day, it is YOUR project so it’s imperative that you are happy with the final result. I can help you with a range of business writing services, but also work with other top-rated freelancers on Upwork that I can recommend or collaborate with if required, such as SEO and web design experts and fluent Japanese speakers for translation services. I look forward to hearing from you and working together. Kind regards Stephen

Endorsements from past clients

"Stephen not only takes a close look at what you've achieved in your career, but he cares about where you want to go, too. Unlike the old fashioned cookie-cutter approach, I felt not only listened to as a client but completely understood and supported during the whole process - this is an extremely rare thing to find. I came to UpWork looking for someone to give me some pointers on my job application, and I've come out of this contract with a better understanding of what recruiters focus on, as well as my strengths as a candidate. As someone who rarely asks for help, I am so glad I approached Stephen and can only wholeheartedly recommend working with him."

"I worked with Stephen on resume development, executive coaching and constructing my Linkedin profile. In all three areas he extended an enormous amount of expertise and delivered beyond my expectations. He was acclimated with trending business initiatives and able to message them creatively in parallel to communicating my deliverables in a very effective manner. It's a treasure to find someone who has an amazing skill set but to also work with someone of integrity and who is passionate about their work; is a big plus! "
