Your CV is a powerful tool that can help you land those desirable executive finance positions.

The right one will bypass the technology and the initial five second human scan to earmark you for your target role. Isn’t that what a great CV is all about?

Writing your own CV at an executive level doesn’t come naturally. Everyone benefits from fresh eyes, perspective and industry insight. Your CV must articulate your distinctive skills and attributes in a way that shows the value you bring to your future employer at this level. With fewer open roles in the market, it’s never been more important to understand what hiring managers look for in a CV.

In this one-hour masterclass, learn finance-focused CV writing tips and strategies from Victoria McLean, Founder and CEO of City CV – a career industry expert, award-winning CV writer and coach, who has helped over 30,000 candidates secure their dream role.

Victoria has developed a nuanced and strategic approach, which fuses market knowledge with a deep understanding of recruitment techniques to help build your personal brand and create a compelling CV story.

Learn how to create a strong and authentic CV which will get you noticed for roles such as CFO, finance director, financial controller, management and financial accountants, all the way through to public accounting in audit, tax advisory, and consulting.

Expertise and insider knowledge gathered from years of international CV writing and recruiting will be shared, including:

  • CV evolution - how AI and algorithms can make or break your career (and how to beat the CV robots)

  • Soft skills to avoid in your CV - how to show, not tell

  • The essentials for every bullet point

  • How to ‘prove it’

  • Be 'smart' - sell yourself every step of the way

  • Avoid the formatting errors that guarantee rejection from most CV screening systems

  • The two mistakes that spell rejection from 97% of recruiters

  • Live Q&A

Victoria McLean, Founder and CEO, Hanover | City CV

Victoria spent her earlier career in global recruitment before joining Goldman Sachs and then Merrill Lynch, where she delivered insights that transformed recruitment strategy and influenced multinational resource allocation. In 2009 she founded City CV to bridge a market gap for top-quality CV and profile writing. Since then, Victoria has grown City CV into an international, client-focused business that empowers jobseekers and helps companies to protect their most important resource – their people.

Passionate about DE&I, Victoria is a regular speaker at women’s networks. Her original insights address the imposter syndrome, the impact of menopause on business success, setting boundaries at work, and staying visible in a hybrid world.

Under Victoria’s leadership, City CV’s team of writers and executive coaches transform careers and guide businesses on how best to inspire, raise brand awareness, take care of the people they let go and optimise employee engagement.
