What you get with this Hourlie

This proposal is discounted as I am newly back on PPH (as of March 2018) after a 4 year break from the platform.

Are you struggling to find a new job? It doesn't matter if you're bar staff or a barrister... If you think your CV is being ignored because of the sheer volume of similar CVs recruiters receive every day, then let me re-write your CV to really sell your skills and prove the value you will bring your new employer.

A skill-set CV sells your skills first, your history second. The recruiter is already invested in reading about the showcased you within seconds of reading the first few lines of your newly reformatted CV.

I would look to re-write your CV as a skill-set CV rather than the traditional chronological style. This format is still relatively rare in the UK and in my experience is perceived by recruiters as being from someone who genuinely wants the job. It piques curiosity whilst also allowing recruiters to see at a glance what value the candidate will bring, Ultimately it is about up-selling the skills and competencies a particular candidate has, rather than having them hidden under a job role or title. It can highlight skills you have that you may not have used in your career (either recently or at all), I know I certainly wouldn't use anything else for myself.

I have successfully re-written CVs into the skill-set style for barristers, solicitors, business analysts, sales staff, personal assistants, doctors, nurses - the list is endless. The one thing these people all had in common is that on paper, from a chronological CV, they were the same as the next person. My reformat of their history and details enabled them to showcase their individuality and stand out as candidates, whilst highlighting the value they would bring to their prospective employers.

I would propose to review your CV on receipt of the same, return to you with any questions or queries I may have, and return a draft of the same within 48 hours.

A non-disclosure agreement, free of charge, is available if required.
