I’m Lis McGuire, a registered career development professional (RCDP) and the founder of Giraffe CVs.

Abous Us - Lis McGuire 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 2,000 job seekers from graduate to C-Level, across all types of roles and sectors.


I set up Giraffe CVs with the aim of helping my clients 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. 

If you are already clear on your career goals, please visit the ‘work with me’ page to find out more about my services here.

If you are not yet clear on your career goals, I can help with that too. Through Sunrise Career Guidance, I offer personal career guidance services to help my clients identify, plan, and take positive next steps.

I have an MA in Career Management and a Level 7 Qualification in Career Guidance (QCG). As a registered career development professional (RCDP), I abide by the Career Development Institute (CDI) code of ethics and undertake 25+ hours of continuing professional development (CPD) each year to refresh and evolve my practice. 

I’d love to work with you.
