CV Help & Advice

Whether you are starting from scratch or updating your details, writing a CV should always be done with care.

By using our tips, your CV will create the right impression and help yours get to the top of the pile with the result that you are more likely to be called for an interview.

What to include in a CV

Stand out

Your CV should demonstrate your unique blend of skills and experience. Make sure you include examples of commercial success, problem resolution or management achievements.

Keep it simple

Your choice of font and layout are key to making sure a would-be employer carries on reading your CV. Simple formats work best.

Don‘t be generic

Work out who or which industry sector your CV is destined for and tailor it to highlight the right aspects of your experience for them.

Check and check again

Avoid errors at all costs. This means spelling mistakes, dates which conflict with one another and incorrect email address and phone number.

Update

Firing off an old CV will look unprofessional, so make sure that yours is regularly updated to meet the requirements of any jobs you see advertised.

Use a template

By following a CV template you are not restricting the way in which you can express yourself, but you will find that your CV becomes easier to read and covers all the most important aspects of your work history.
