What our happy customers are saying:

Maria
Financial Services Marketing (and Board Position)
There aren't enough three to four syllable words to describe what Lucy does. Not only is she a joy to deal with, but she helped me turn my resume into a compelling marketing tool. She helped me nail my summary section, and more importantly helped me craft my resume to reflect that I was an "achiever" rather than a "doer". My job descriptions were task based rather than results based and she managed to help me create excitement in the words. Within a week of using Lucy's resume, a secured myself interviews, which helped me land a that elusive new job. I can't rate her highly enough and am influencing all my friends about the benefits of using a professional resume writer. Thank you Lucy for helping me make a boring resume into something dramatic and punchy!"
Michelle
Public Affairs Manager
I am pleased to say I have accepted a job! I can't thank you enough for the assistance & support you gave me in those early weeks. Having not interviewed for years I really appreciated your advice and the documents you sent me were so helpful. Specially the 'preparing for an interview' info - the examples of behavioural questions you provided really helped me prepare & were commonly asked - so thank you so much.

I'm really happy! I was at a stage where I was getting sick of looking at my own resume and this impacted my ability to change it as much as it needed to, as in my mind everything was relevant (analysis paralysis!!) I now have 2 versions of my resume current to the market needs of today. Read More

Lucy transformed my CV and online presence. Her collaborative approach made me feel a part of the process and once making my new CV and online profile live I immediately got a different reaction from recruiters and employers. I am getting more unsolicited connections and profile views over LinkedIn (to this day) and I secured a new role within a week of sending out my new CV. Lucy really showed me how I could present myself and my skills/experience beyond what I had thought of, I thought my CV was pretty good beforehand, but now I realise it was nowhere near where it could be. Thanks Lucy!

In just a short time, my reworked resume and profile got me in front of a number of potential employers, and I had secured a challenging and motivating position in a new sector within 2 months. Without Lucy and Your Spark, it wouldn’t have been possible. Read More
I really needed to update my resume and online profile as I began looking for a new opportunity in a different industry sector after working in retail banking product management for 20 years. My resume was detailed and I had the experience, but I came across a bit dull, and my LinkedIn profile was sparse and had no cut-through. Lucy’s expertise and advice, and not to mention her creative and presentation skills, were central in transforming my resume and profile from being ‘dull reports’, to being exciting, lively presentations of me as a highly skilled and experienced professional who employers would be keen to engage. And it really worked! In just a short time, my reworked resume and profile got me in front of a number of potential employers, and I had secured a challenging and motivating position in a new sector within 2 months. Without Lucy and Your Spark, it wouldn’t have been possible. I’ve already recommended her to friend and colleagues!

Lucy has not only transformed my Resume and LinkedIn assets, by facilitating a remarkable journey of discovery about my strengths, gaps and talents, but more importantly, this engagement has prompted a process of development around what inspires me professionally (even vocationally) so that I can fully appreciate and grasp the opportunities before me now - and with a new confidence and clarity! Indeed a new Spark.

The new CV has been put to the test – I discussed it with an executive recruiter this week and also with an exec coach and both gave glowing feedback on it. Very happy indeed…

Kristi

I had a really positive experience with Your Spark, and really appreciated all Lucy's work to give my CV a complete overhaul to position me for a transition into a totally new industry. Lucy really listened to me and took the time to understand my unconventional work experience, using her skills and experience to extract my transferable skills and achievements. I spoke with Lucy at length on a number of occasions during the process and appreciated her added advice on job hunting, positioning myself to companies, interviewing, and my public profile. I'm really happy with my new CV and will definitely use Your Spark in the future for any services I require regarding job applications and interviews.

Lucy was great to work with. Her wisdom and straight forward style, combined to produce a sharp and tailored CV and Linkedin profile that were a 100% improvement on my old ones. They will no doubt open a lot more doors for me so it’s a small investment that will pay dividends quickly. I highly recommend Your Spark!

Lucy's ability to bring a fresh approach to my resume and Linkedin was impressive. Lucy was able to extract important information and examples which allowed my resume to tell a compelling story. I am very pleased with the final result and am confident it represents me authentically. I would highly recommend Lucy if you are looking for a resume or Linkedin update.
David

I appreciate your help and I think it is a valuable service you offer. There is lots of advice on the concept of Linkedin and resumes, but the challenge for most people is converting theory into words
Abed
Systems Engineer
I have been struggling with a lack of self branding in my resume and which format, content, and structure should be there. The questionnaire and the tips associated with them has helped me release my potentials directly the way I see them. My own feedback has been reflected magically on the resume with a very appealing phrases that I could have never thought of. As soon as I started applying to positions using my new resume, recruiters have started to get in touch . I really thank you for your efforts in putting me one step closer to the new challenging opportunity that I am after
Hannah
Communications Manager
Updating my resume was a daunting task. I didn’t know what was relevant to demonstrate my transferable skills in a new industry and role. Lucy helped me articulate what I wanted in a role which translated into an updated and dynamic resume. I am pleased to say that I have landed a rewarding role in a tough industry to break into. Thank you Lucy.
