A fully comprehensive board application writing service – we will craft for you a full board application – CV, Supporting Statement & Cover Letter.

Board applications should differ from regular executive applications in terms of the: tone; content and style. Not having bespoke documents that meet the criteria set out, an appropriate cover letter or board CV will all impact drastically limit your chances of being selected for an interview or appointed.

David Schwarz has over a decade of experience putting people on boards as an ex-board recruiter. He has written 1,800 board CVs conservatively in his time and reviewed thousands. Working closely with you, he will personally write you your board CV and, once completed, will then personally write your board application – according to the specifications required by the advertising organisation.

Typically, this service will include:

    • 1:1 conversations with David to understand your drivers and successes. This will be via an online call or Google Meet session.
    • A bespoke board CV written for you
    • A bespoke board cover letter written for you
    • A bespoke supporting statement addressing the core criteria written for you

However, David won’t leave you there. He will further critique and amend the application until you are content that it accurately reflects the message you would like to portray.
