CV Workshop.

It's tough letting good people go when you're faced with downsizing the business. So give them the best prospects of securing their next role through our CV Workshop.

Support Your Employees Through the Redundancy Process

In times of potential employee redundancy, going above and beyond to assist them in securing new employment not only reflects your company's values but also strengthens your employer brand. Demonstrating empathy and offering comprehensive support fosters high morale and productivity within your workforce.

However, it's disheartening that only a handful of in-house HR teams or recruitment agencies offer tailored assistance with CVs and covering letters, let alone guidance on optimising LinkedIn profiles. This is where our specialised CV Workshop excels, bridging the gap and providing the essential guidance your employees need during this crucial phase of their careers.

Who Is the CV Workshop For?

Our CV workshop is designed for anyone facing the prospects of redundancy and requires expert guidance on crafting a compelling CV that gets noticed by recruiters and applicant tracking systems (ATS), construct a covering letter that ignites interest, and optimising their personal LinkedIn profile to command attention from potential recruiters.
