``Quod vitae sectabor iter?`` - Ausonius

Which way in life shall I go?

The CV Branch

I believe that the only approach to effective communication is through correct use of language.

The CV Branch is a dream of mine which has finally come to fruition. I am ardent about the world of languages and have studied several, including English and Latin, the latter a language offering an exceptional foundation for further languages studies. Therefore the quality of the English usage on your documents will reflect this acquired expertise. I take the time and attention with each CV, Cover Letter, Resume, and Copy-editing and Proofreading documents in order to assure the accuracy of language and the uniqueness of my clients. I continuously invest time so as to be certain that my templates and skills remain in touch with what is acceptable in the industry both locally and internationally.

I come from a background of learning languages but have also worked in the sales industry. I worked with the South African banks, providing advice on the rules of MasterCard and Visa new cards.

Friends and family have often described me as a perfectionist. Although I don’t always agree with that, I must admit to having a gift for paying minute attention to detail. This character trait is important in working with languages. And because of my enjoyment of my subject, the results are just that much better.

In short, I am a language lover, a dog lover, an intrepid traveller and a history devotee.

I look forward to working with you, creating outstanding documents, revealing you at your very best.

Our Services

CV Writing

One of our specialities is CV writing. We offer a unique, professional CV in the appropriate chronological format, composed in precise and simple English. We describe and emphasize your qualities, qualifications, experience, and value, thereby enhancing your opportunity for employment. A Curriculum Vitae written by the CV Branch will attract attention and be noticeable!

LinkedIn profile

Once we have completed your CV, we can upload it to your LinkedIn profile. We will also fill in the little extras for you. LinkedIn is widely recognized as an important professional social media to belong to.

Cover Letters

When you are applying for a specific position, a Cover Letter will improve your visibility as a potential employee. The letter highlights both your particular skills and the demands of the position; a prefect compliment to your CV and an element of your personal marketing.

Copy-editing and Proofreading

We offer an editing service to any document. The CV Branch assesses the document for spelling, grammar and punctuation. During the editing process we eliminate unsuitable jargon and refine the language where appropriate. Should you require proofreading, we can also assist you. Proofreading is normally done once a document has already been edited and formatted.


Once we have completed your detailed Curriculum Vitae, we can shorten it into a one to two page Résumé, should it be required by a prospective employer. In the Résumé, we summarize your important skills and experience with very little personal information included.
