About PurpleCV

Absolutely brilliant job by Sophie. She successfully turned my basically worded, badly structured CV into a professional, employable document – very impressed. I will be recommending this service to friends.


Our Mission

We believe that an excellent CV can be a springboard to a great career, whatever your background.

Our mission is to help you take that vital next step up the ladder. Whether you’re a recent graduate or a top executive, our aim is to help you reach your career goals.

Our Story

PurpleCV’s story began in 2012, when founder Andrew Arkley decided to share his 15 years of experience in the UK HR and recruitment industry.

Andrew - who has extensive knowledge of UK employment law - had reviewed tens of thousands of CVs. He knows what makes a successful CV and vowed to provide clients with an impeccable service at an affordable price.

Word started to spread and PurpleCV began to expand, soon becoming a leading name in the UK CV writing industry.

PurpleCV now write CVs for clients across the globe and our team boasts recruitment professionals, employment experts and qualified career coaches and counsellors.

Maya was a fantastic writer and outperformed what I expected. Excellent service, communication and result. Can’t fault at all. Use this service!


Our Service

Andrew knew from experience what employers look for in a CV – but he also knew this wasn’t always obvious to jobseekers.

He started PurpleCV to address this gap. Andrew wanted to offer a service that didn’t treat customers like templates but like individuals – and that aim is at the heart of everything we do.

We work closely with our customers and write all our CVs from scratch. We’ll listen to your requirements and write you a tailored CV that capitalises on your skills, qualifications and experience.

If you really want to maximise your chances of landing that dream job, we can create you a LinkedIn profile and cover letter to complement your CV.

We make it our mission to keep up with the fast-paced UK job market. That’s why our standard turnaround time is just two days, and we offer unlimited revisions for 12 months.

We believe that having a top-notch CV shouldn’t break the bank. Our prices are fair and realistic, and our 100% satisfaction guarantee means you can be confident you’ll be happy with the results.

But don’t just take our word for it – our excellent Trustpilot rating speaks for itself, and you can see what our customers have to say about us.
