Here's what our personal and corporate clients say about us.


Once again you never cease to amaze and completely exceed my expectations. The recent update to my CV that you have done is outstanding, exactly what I wanted and more. You do amaze me with your talents, now I have to live up to it!  Once again many thanks for your time and help, I'm sure I'll be in touch with you for some more work.

Thank you for all the hard work you have put in for me. I can't believe you managed to get such a grasp of what I do without being an automative software engineer yourself! The CV feels as though I have written it myself.  The layout is wonderful. I have to say that this is awesome work, I want to employ this guy myself!  So, so pleased.

As a recent service leaver, I was struggling to document 21 years of military experience into a CV that was commercially relevant and appealing. Jo did a fantastic job, and her rewrite of my wife's CV was superb, resulting in an instant interview and job offer! We are both hugely grateful for Joanna's CV writing skills.

Thanks to Jo and CVIA for such a fantastic webinar on advanced CV writing and LinkedIn.  In my experience, it is rare to encounter a speaker with a smooth, confident, professional and genuine delivery such as she demonstrated.

Jo is a superb speaker and her knowledge of the world of recruitment is broad. I would certainly recommend her to other organisations addressing the subject of personal branding and job-seeking.

As I approached the end of my career in the Armed Forces, I needed the help of somebody who could translate the skills and experience I had into a language understood and recognised outside of the Service. Joanna guides you along every step of the process before producing a 1st Class product. I would recommend her to anybody.

A brand is completely safe in Joanna's hands. Any business considering working with her would be missing an opportunity if they didn't use her. Her ability to pick up and run with a project is fabulous, she makes it her own and Jo has a real way with words. Her Linkedin webinars drew in over 200 people. Jo has been an excellent asset to Recruit for Spouses and I cannot recommend her highly enough. (Heledd Kendrick, CEO Recruit for Spouses)

Thank you for the CV and covering letter, the whole package looks and read amazingly, pulling out the salient points from my varied career that I would not have focused on. This whole process has made me reflect on my skills and experience and has lifted my confidence entering a rather scary period of my life.

Well, what can I say?  I'd hire me in a second after reading that CV! Everything is true, but the way you have worded it makes me sound extremely impressive! Thank you, I'm very pleased with the results.

Talk to Joanna, she is a superstar interview trainer! What she said really helped me to focus.

Thank you so much for your help! I really didn't know how to put the words on the page, and CV Essentials has really helped me. My CV is very impressive and I would most certainly employ me! Excellent service and value for money. Thank you.

Following an update of his CV by CV Essentials, my husband secured a new job, which was also a promotion, in a much better company. Thank you!
