Securing an IT role in Investment Banking
Get Your Dream Job in IT
WRITING A CV FOR AN IT JOB
Let my 30 years of experience working in Corporate Firms and Investment Banking IT (Information Technology) assist you by improving your success in gaining a highly paid role in the IT industry. Unlike 99% of firms that offer services to improve your CV and Digital Communications to land a high paying IT job I have actually lived the role, and for a considerable time, so I have earned real life experience at the coal face and learned my craft the hard way.
I'm not a recruitment consultant or someone with HR experience offering general advice with not actual IT experience. I know what actually works for IT jobs having used my knowledge to land roles and get hired by some of the best firms in the world for both Contract and Permanent roles. I've also worked with a substantial number of Off-Shore IT professionals and understand their unique challenges with the English language in business.
In my professional opinion you cannot be an expert in everything, so you need to specialise and this is particularly true when providing tailor made services for landing an IT job. IT is saturated with acronyms and specialised terminology which non-IT literate CV writers would struggle to understand when reviewing a CV to ensure highly relevant and in demand skills and experience are prominently displayed.
Investing a small amount to have an industry expert review and improve your CV is critical to getting your skills and experience noticed by employers and employment agencies - to avoid being eliminated at the very first stage.
On this site you will find the tools you need to build your confidence and dazzle potential employers.

IT'S EASY WHEN YOU KNOW HOW
Have you ever wondered how you could be earning more money out of your IT skills? Have you ever asked yourself why that other person you know, who is also in the IT industry, is doing so much better than you?
Let's be honest, they're probably not any better than you at doing the job but what they are better at doing is getting paid more than you. They may even be in the same role i.e. Call Centre, Developer, IT Operations, Project Manager etc. but where they differ is in where they are working.
So, do these high earners have magical powers, or do they have an Einstein level of intellect? Of course not, all they realised (like I did) was that it was not what you knew but who paid you for it. What you will need to change is your approach and mind-set because as you know repeating the same method over and over to get a better job will not change the outcome.
It's easy to put things off and justify to yourself as to why you should not make the move to a highly paid job, but every day you delay making any progress is losing you money and you will still be thinking about it and regretting your indecisiveness and lack of motivation.
To get you started I have developed guides for CV Writing for IT jobs and Presentation Skills. If you require additional help, please see Services below. If you are not sure about your requirements then please Contact Me.
NON-NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS
As the IR35 reforms are still planned to be introduced to the Private Sector albeit not as planned on April 6th 2020, I have regularly updated IR35 content and IT Industry Blog where your can learn all about IR35 and how large Corporate Firms and Banks are planning to implement it. For UK contractors, the roll-out of the IR35 reform to the Private Sector will be game changing and should not be ignored. Start your preparation today by getting your CV updated.
CV Template and Tips
If you feel confident to write a CV for yourself but just need help with formatting and content I have created a CV template in MS Word.
IT CV Writing
Don't fall at the first hurdle as it's critical that your resume/CV highlights your achievements, reflects your potential and should be selling your talents.
I have reviewed hundreds of lT resumes and interviewed dozens of candidates over the years and know what can help or hinder you.
This is particularly important with technical resumes as it is all too easy to fall into the trap of just listing endless courses or certifications etc. without actually selling yourself.
