CV Writing Service for Police & Military Personnel

The Start of a New Chapter

Working life after leaving the police can feel a little daunting. After years of structured career progression, it can feel difficult to communicate your varied experience to a potential employer and relate it to their recruitment needs.

Your CV needs to be tailored towards the positions you intend to apply for as this allows the reader to understand why your skills and expertise meet their criteria and increases the likelihood of being offered an interview. It is best to have a good idea of what you would like to apply for prior to your CV being written.

At The CV Guru we have had substantial experience in writing CVs for those retiring from the police.

We are able to showcase transferable skills and significantly increase chances of gaining an interview.

Understanding that you are unlikely to have an existing CV due to completing application forms while in the services, we will provide you with a form to complete so that we can gain the required information and create your CV.

Customer Testimonial



Having just about completed my first week in my new business Decode Cyber Solutions, I have time to consider the various steps it has taken for me to achieve this. I recognised how key it was to capture what my business offers in writing to allow those who viewed my LinkedIn profile to understand. Having not done anything like this before, I was fortunate to meet with Emma at a Police pre-retirement course, where she offered great advice to everyone in attendance. I followed this up by asking Emma to write my profile ‘pen picture’- I found Emma to be very professional and someone who listened and captured accurately what we had discussed.

I would encourage anyone who requires their CV written or their business profile relayed, particularly on LinkedIn to contact The CV Guru. Thank you Emma for a job very well done!
