Abous Us - Lis McGuire founder of Giraffe CVs
I’m Lis McGuire,
a professional CV writer and the founder of Giraffe CVs.
I’ve always enjoyed writing CVs, initially for myself as a graduate job seeker, and later for others.

Before I even became a full-time CV writer, I had written hundreds of CVs: team CVs for consultancy staff; CVs for inclusion in £multi-million proposals; and CVs for friends who asked me for help.

Making this into my own business seemed a logical next step.

Since starting Giraffe CVs in 2004, I have worked with over 1,500 job seekers from graduate to C-Level, across all types of roles and industry sectors.


My mission is to help professionals aim high, stand tall, and get spotted, just like the magnificent giraffe. I do this by creating interview-winning CVs, credible LinkedIn profiles, and compelling cover letters.

When I’m not writing CVs, I share actionable CV and careers advice, helping my clients and followers to supercharge their job search. My weekly blog has been running since April 2013, and in May 2014, I launched my podcast alter-ego, The CV Confidence Coach, delivering CV writing, LinkedIn, cover letter, job search, and career tips in bite-size weekly shows.

I am proud to have been featured by The Guardian, The National Careers Service, WorkBloom, Plotr, Social-Hire.com, and more.

I’d love to work with you.
