About New Startz

I have been working in senior manager roles in education, beauty therapy and Aviation for the past 30 years. Having recruited in all these industries and having written CV's for friends and colleagues for a number of years, I know what employers look for and the things that let people down. I now want to use that experience to help others; I specialise in working with those who have been in the same job for a long time and are having to move on; such as Cabin Crew, those returning to the workplace after time out, those just starting out and those who lack confidence when it comes to applications and interviews. I am friendly and approachable, I don't charge the earth and I genuinely want to help you get where you want to be. I offer a comprehensive service including CV writing, interview techniques, career coaching and presentation development. I can also help with editing university essays/thesis and general proof reading.

Gary A.'s review on Sep 15, 2020

This was my first time of getting a Professional to overlook my C.V and I couldn’t be more happier that I did. I found Sara to be friendly, engaging, and very knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble for her and I was very pleased with the end result. I would absolutely recommended Sara if your C.V. needs an overhaul

Caroline j.'s review on Jun 26, 2020

Sara is caring, clever and astute. She can easily help you find your best points and explain how they could be used in a work environment. She helped me see things in a new way when I had to change careers after being with the same company 25 years. I now feel like I have so many possibilities ahead.

David n.'s review on Jun 21, 2020

Having not had to write a CV I’m twenty five years I had no clue where to start. Sara was my manger at TUI and I knew that she had help some other people out with there CV and with good results. The CV I got back was amazing she know my job roles and any the layout was first class. Having worked with Sara at my Airline on a personal level I know she will go above and beyond for anyone needed, she has helped me out many times over the years.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
I try to keep my pricing as low as possible whilst not compromising on quality. I realise that this is a difficult financial and emotional time for many but my pricing is based on an hourly rate and therefore how long it takes me to produce a high quality CV that is specific to your requirements; I don't do "Copy and paste" CV's. If a price quoted is too high for your circumstances I am happy to discuss this with you to see if we can meet at a mutually agreed pricing structure.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I tend to do most of my work via email, although I am quite happy to also speak over the phone if required. I will want to know whether you currently have a CV which simply needs up-dating or whether this is to be written from scratch in which case I will need a list of jobs/dates and basic contact details to get me started. I will research the key roles you have done to get the best possible emphasis into the CV to highlight the skill set you have gained. If you are at the start of your career, we will talk about hobbies, academic achievements and any other activities you do either inside or outside of school, so I can identify the skills you have built up through these. I will put a first draft together which will be sent to you for your feedback; often people forget to mention things that could really strengthen a CV and we will continue the draft and feedback process until you are 100% happy with the end result. At this point I will invoice you for a bank transfer of charges. My aim is to help as much as I can so I will also suggest career paths and companies you could look at or advise you on what to expect from an interview; whatever is needed.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
I have a number of professional qualifications in training and management and a breadth of experience in recruiting for roles at all levels
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Don't necessarily just look for the cheapest! Impactful CV writing is a skill and it takes time to put a good CV together. Find out the knowledge and experience the pro has in the area in which you would like to work, speak to them about exactly what you are paying for and what help they can give you and do not pay for anything up front! A CV full of grammatical and punctuation errors in worthless.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
What do you include as part of your CV writing service? What experience do you have in this area of work? How long will it take to receive my CV? [I would question a response that was anything less than 48hrs!]
What are some good examples of past customers?
Those that follow things up when they say they will, take time to tell me a little bit about themselves and give me all the information I require at the start; I am amazed by some of the key pieces of information that are only given to me just before I finalise the CV :) Respect is also important to me; I have no problem with you wanting to amend/add in/adapt the CV as many times as you want but please be honest and polite - and let me know if you no longer need to use my service. I am also a human being who is doing nothing more than trying to help. I have been very fortunate with those I have worked with so far and I take pride in knowing that most have already gained employment
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
A CV would normally take me 2 - 3 hours to write, depending on how much research I have to do. I aim to get a first draft back to you within 72 hours and will always advise if that is not possible.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I was made redundant from my last role as a Base Manager for a FTSE 100 company and found myself in the same situation as many of you. I didn't know what I wanted to do next, but I did know what I DIDN'T want to do! Lockdown happened just before my final day at work and I was helping many of the cabin crew I managed to get roles in supermarkets etc and receiving great feedback as well as really enjoying it. Colleagues suggested I take it up as a career and after a lot of persuasion I did just that, forming my company Newstartz in June 2020.
