Are you in search of the perfect job but struggling to create an impressive CV? Do you want to make your CV stand out and get noticed by employers? If yes, then the British Association of CV Writers (BACW) might be just what you need!
I explore what the BACW is and how it can help you in your job search, and what benefits it offers to its members.
CV writing isn’t regulated in the UK and this makes it hard for job seekers to identify good CV writers that will help them secure that all-important interview.
If you’re a self-employed, independent CV writer, especially if you work alone, there isn’t a strong community in the UK to share ideas, best practice, and generally collaborate.
To address both issues, the British Association of CV Writers (BACVW) was founded.
The BACVW is a not-for-profit unincorporated association with the intention of building a community for CV writers and enabling its members to share best practice, ideas, experience, and information, to gain different perspectives, encourage each other, and build relationships with fellow CV writers.
The organization’s primary goal is to promote best practices in CV writing, provide professional development opportunities for its members, and help job seekers find employment by creating impressive CVs that accurately represent their skills, experience, and qualifications.
Their key aims are to:
All this ultimately means that members provide a better service to their clients and jobseekers are protected from CV writers who might not have the values or ethics that the BACVW promotes.
To become a BACVW member, CV Writers are put through rigorous testing, which is independantly assessed by a Quality Assurance Officer. Members are then required to attend regular meetings where knowledge and best pracitces are exchanged. This ensures all members provide excellent service to jobseekers and makes the CV writing industry one that is respected and credible.
When you need help with your job search, The BACVW can provide a list of certified independent CV writers who have passed a rigorous membership process and can be trusted to provide excellent service to those seeking support with their CV.
Whether you’re a recent graduate or an experienced professional, having a well-crafted CV is essential to securing the job you want. The BACW can help you in the following ways:
