Recession proof your income with an exciting new business opportunity with Successful Resumes New Zealand
Writing CVs is buoyant business that suffers very few peaks and troughs. Job-seekers understand that their CV is a sophisticated marketing tool critical to their success, and many recognise they need professional assistance to stand out and win in the highly competitive employment market.
Writing CVs is also as recession proof as it is possible to be for a business. In tight economic markets, retrenchments increase as employers look to cut costs. More people are out of a job and looking for work. That’s when we move into top gear as the phones ring hot and the emails roll in from potential clients.
In good times, people move around more from job to job as they carve out their careers. They need carefully written CVs to help position them for a jump in responsibility or a change of industry.
Successful Resumes New Zealand is part of an international group of professionals. Our philosophy is that a successful CV is a strategic marketing document, creatively designed and intelligently written. It’s not just a typed up list of employment dates and tasks, as many so-called CV writers tend to treat the exercise. In addition to a personal consultative approach, interviewing every client, we set very high service standards for ourselves with formalised quality control systems and a code of conduct.
Currently in NZ there are few truly professional CV writers. This market is in its infancy, and we expect huge growth as job seekers become more savvy.
We are a professional cooperative group not a franchise. Our team shares advertising costs, business expertise and writing knowledge but each person manages their own exclusive territory individually. It’s the perfect blend of help when needed and personal flexibility!
Our group consists of both full time and part time professionals. Some are parents who wish to spend more time with their children, others are looking for supplementary income, some are semi-retired and others are young people keen to develop a great business. We are a diverse entrepreneurial group and highly supportive of each other.

There are 25+ people in the Successful Resumes group across Australia and NZ; men and women, from their 20s to their 70s, with a variety of career backgrounds and business experience. Several also have physical disabilities.
Successful Resumes offers a dynamic, international group established for more than 16 years. We operate in all states of Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and India. Our methods have proven just as successful in New Zealand as they have overseas.
You don’t need an HR background to be a successful CV writer. Our writers come from a wide range of backgrounds including teaching, marketing, administration, military, law, IT, government and farming.
