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:

Personal Profile

This should be an introduction to you. A short overview of what you can offer, your career history and key achievements. A way to demonstrate the industry sectors that you have worked in and a chance to really sell yourself.

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? Have you ever been promoted? Did you exceed your sales targets? If so, these are the best place to start.

Presentation

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. 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.

Career History

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, relocation, temporary or contract roles you can eliminate any potential concerns.

Length of CV

One common myth amongst job seekers is to keep CV’s at a maximum of two pages, however, if you have bags of relevant experience it is important to show this off! Although we encourage candidates to keep their CV’s tidy, do not feel pressured into cutting out key information. We have placed plenty of candidates with CV’s over five 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. If you really want to impress, highlight your advanced skills such as vlookups, pivot tables and macros.
