About Heidi Saunders

I started WMAD as a leap of faith, whereby a platform could be created to share my skills and employment offers I came across with a growing community. Other members also started sharing opportunities. We would share tips on CVs and Cover letters to online career portals and also advice on interviewing etiquette. Later we offered an affordable Cv writing service and many members over 7 years have been able to find employment and feed their families. We also provide pro-Bono for those in need.
