Emma’s East Dunbartonshire business is just the job


With over ten years of experience in recruitment and employment Emma Alkirwi decided to set up her own business providing professionally written CVs, LinkedIn profiles and cover letters.

Emma utilised her comprehensive skills and experience to launch The CV Guru last year with support from Business Gateway East Dunbartonshire. The CV Guru advises people in all industries by creating and arming them with CVs and LinkedIn profiles that will best sell them to recruiters.

Emma said: “As well as my career I have a young family and setting up my own business allowed me to have the flexibility to combine both. At the CV Guru we pride ourselves on providing an exceptional and professional service to our clients. Our consultants use their writing skills to capture our client’s expertise so they are in the best possible position to attract recruiters and employers. Whether it’s someone looking to get back into work or an individual wanting to move up the ladder, our specialists can help anyone in almost every industry and level of seniority.

“Business Gateway have been a big help right from the beginning. I’ve had support in a number of areas including website and SEO advice and learning how to run an effective business page on Facebook.The skills I’ve learned from the DigitalBoost programme have been invaluable.”
