REMEMBER your CV will be one of many an employer will consider. Make your stand out… SIMPLICITY is key


  • In order for employers to contact you, it is vital to include key information at the top of your CV.


  • Start with your Name and Job title nice and bold so it stands out. Follow with your address and contact information.


  • It is good practice for an educational based CV to specify whether you are a driver with a Clear driving license and have a clear DBS.


  • Your personal profile should be no more than a 5-line paragraph. Sell yourself what makes you employable.


  • Outline all the roles and responsibilities in your work history. Refrain from repeating the same responsibilities if you worked in the same role in separate places. Use this opportunity to sell your capability of the role your want to be considered for.


  • Make your Cv is more personal to you and highlight your hobbies and other experiences that could strengthen you as a potential candidate.


We hope these CV top tips lead you to your next new job… Remember, first impressions are everything.
