Compiling Your CV

It is important that the information be laid out in a clear and logical way, so that employer’s can access the information easily.

  • Contact Details You should provide your full name. If you have a mobile phone you should always give this number, otherwise you could miss out on that all important position!
  • Date of Birth Employers are not allowed to discriminate, but putting these details down does save them spending time. If you are not a Citizen of the Country in which you are applying, special arrangements may have to be made.
  • Education Starting with the most recent, list the places in which you have studied. For GCSEs and A Levels you will need to state how many subjects you studied and the grades that were achieved.
  • Employment History You will need to put these in order of most recent position first, including starting and leaving dates, the company that you worked for and your job title for each position. (For staff that have been working in temporary positions through agencies, should list the dates that were worked for each agency and then a description of the roles that you took on). Include a concise description of the duties and responsibilities that were taken in each position, so that employers can see the kind of skills acquired.
  • Length
    Your CV should usually be no longer than two sheets of A4 paper and kept to two separate pages.
    Make sure that the CV is kept as brief as possible, thus enabling you to expand further on your skills in the interview process.Avoid repeating yourself and most importantly, be honest!
  • Gaps
    If there are gaps between employments, these should be explained so that your CV has a continuous flow.
  • Presentation
    Your CV should never be hand written and all spelling and grammar should be checked. If in doubt get a friend to proof read through it, so that it makes sense.
