CV Pilots is an award-winning London-based executive CV writing firm that works with driven, successful applicants across all major sectors including finance, real estate, law, technology and marketing.

We hire only exceptional CV writers who have been educated at Oxbridge and other top-tier universities and also possess solid industry experience.
Our team leverages an unparalleled combination of expert writing and in-depth understanding of today’s recruiting environment.
We make an unusual effort to understand you and your aspirations.
Your telephone consultation can be tailored to include elements of interview coaching or career-path discovery, as we gather essential information to craft your perfect CV.
We are a proud member of the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches.
We abide by the organisation’s code of business ethics and never compromise on matters of integrity.
Solid Career Investment
Our clients attest that working with us was a smart investment in their careers.
In a market where competition for top positions is fierce, our CV writers ensure that your credentials are flawlessly presented in the best possible light.
We optimise our CVs to pass initial screenings conducted via Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS).
ATS are artificial intelligence-based tools that recruiters at 98.8% of the world's largest companies use to make the hiring process more efficient.
Both the CV and LinkedIn profile were accurate, without spin or exaggeration, and both were flawlessly written and formatted. Most importantly, it was wonderful to work with CV Pilots. They returned my emails and phone calls quickly and patiently provided clear guidance.
- Mike, Chief Scientific Officer, Pharmaceuticals & Biotech
Great service from start to finish. Very professional but still retaining that personal touch that so many other professional services of this type either lack to begin with or unfortunately shed along the way. Provides exactly what is promised and then goes a little further.
- Nicholas, Area Manager, Retail
CV Pilots helped bring clarity to my hectic career and condensed 11 years of work into one simple but fact-filled page. They highlighted not only where I worked but what I had achieved during my employment. I had numerous calls for interviews and recently got a job.
- David, Director, Cloud-Based Software
Today's Recruitment Realities
EACH CORPORATE JOB POSTING GETS AN AVERAGE OF 250 APPLICANTS
Only 4-6 of those 250 applicants are offered interviews, and only 1 gets the job.
An increasingly competitive applicant pool means that “average” simply won't cut it anymore.
Our executive CV writing services increase your chances of landing interviews for your dream jobs.
RECRUITERS SPEND ONLY SEVEN SECONDS READING A CV
Recruiters take just seven seconds to decide whether a CV makes the initial cut.
Now that candidates can easily apply for jobs online, hiring managers are increasingly overwhelmed by record applicant volumes and need to make quick decisions.
A professionally written CV incorporates content and design features that recruiters expect to see.
SEEMINGLY MINOR MISTAKES CAN LAND YOUR CV IN THE “NO” PILE
Recruiters often toss CVs into the “no” pile instantly for reasons including:
• misplaced punctuation
• unprofessional design
• inconsistent structure and bullet points
• irrelevant information
Our executive CV writers make sure you avoid such pitfalls.
