We do this day in, day out. That's why our CV advice is a good place to start before applying for any job. Writing a CV can be the most rewarding action you take when trying to obtain a new job. Write a good, concise CV and you are more than half way there.


Here are a few pointers to set you on your way:

Here are a few pointers to set you on your way:

Achievements

When writing a CV, put yourself in the employers’ shoes and ask yourself what would make a candidate stand out to you? Have you saved your company money? Have you implemented your own systems? Did you gain promotions? Did you exceed your sales targets? If so, these are a must-add!

Bullet Points

Employers want to gain a clear picture of your experience. Listing these duties and responsibilities in bullet points ensures this is easy to read and makes life much easier for the recruiter.

Too Many Jobs?

Have you had a high volume of jobs within a short space of time? Don't panic! By adding a reason for leaving under each position, whether it be redundancy, a temp/contract role, or relocation, you can eliminate any potential concerns.

Focus On The Job You're Applying For

This may sound obvious, but employers will want to see the relevant skills and experience for the job you have applied for. If you are looking to change career, try to focus on the transferable skills that may be relevant.

Presentation

Set out your skills and competences clearly and logically so that your relevant experience and achievements stand out. Pay attention to details such as spelling and punctuation, and always spell-check!

Length

There is a common myth amongst job seekers that CV’s should be no longer than two pages, however if you are an experienced candidate you may have bags of relevant experience to show off. Although we encourage candidates to keep their CV's tidy, do not feel pressured into cutting out key information to shorten your CV. We have placed plenty of candidates with CV’s over 5 pages long!

IT Skills

Be sure to list all computer programmes and software you have used. Did you use a bespoke CRM system in your last role? If so, ensure this is included! Although they can be obvious, don't forget programmes such as Word, Outlook and Excel!
