Clearly Creative CVs

Write a winning CV for the Television, Animation and other Creative Industries


"When we post a job ad at Napoleon Creative we get so many responses that those that do not hit the nail on the head hit the recycle bin pretty quickly. I keep reading CV with the same problems of poor design, layout or simply not communicating someone’s skills. The trouble is, a poor CV is not always indicative of a poor applicant; many of the CVs we receive simply do not do their senders’ justice. I developed a course to teach you how to write a great CV for the Television industry. The ideas in the course are based not only on my 15 years of experience working in the industry but also with over five years of running and marketing my own production company. I've also backed my this up with industry research." Gavin Ricketts, the Founder and Director of Napoleon Creative and Cv4tv, is offering his expertise with this new career-changing book.

Clearly Creative CVs will change the way you view the recuitment process, give you new insight into why certain CVs are picked over others, and equip you with simple but effective marketing skills that will see a rise in the number of interview requests, job wins and your annual earnings.

"I gave your book to one of my alumni who was really struggling to get interviews and his foot in the door - he is extremely talented, but he wasn’t portraying that on his CV. After reading it he completely revamped his CV and was offered the next job he applied for!"
M.F., Media Trainer

"After reading this book it made me view my CV and how I sold my skills in a completely different light. My previous CV was awful in comparison to my current one, following Clearly Creative CVs I wrote a new one from scratch... this book is guaranteed to give your career a boost"
J.W., Production Designer

"Just wanted to update you, things have been going well, so thanks for the CV advice again. I’ve had the chance to film in China, Sri Lanka and for ITN on multiple occasions since I updated everything after reading your book"
I.W., Cameraman
