How to create an effective CV
Making the right first impression when putting together your CV
is not an easy task, and should be done with care and attention
to detail. Your CV is your opportunity to sell yourself to prospective employers or our clients and highlight the relevant experience, skills, and qualifications you possess, that makes you suitable for a role or vacancy.
CV’s should include:
- Personal details (you don’t have to include a date of birth)
- A paragraph on your personal profile and career objective
- Educational and technical qualifications
- Any Professional Qualifications obtained
Work history and job posts held, in chronological order, with
the most recent one first. State achievements (highlight any figures, statistics, or Key performance indicators to re enforce and illustrate your performance and achievements)
Although important, don’t just describe your duties and responsibilities in detail, highlight your achievements
and the positive outcomes/ results.

Top tips for a winning CV
- Your CV should be concise and kept to two to three sides of A4 at the most
- Presentation is important; make the CV as neat as possible.
- Be consistent in the layout, formatting, and use of fonts. Consider using 'bullets' to start sub-sections or lists to break up big chunks of wording or content
Obvious but worth stating - always check spelling,
punctuation, and grammar for mistakes
Don’t make your CV layout too fancy or complicated
in it’s use of templates and graphics
- Use clear concise, positive language. Your CV is likely to be screened for key selection criteria, and the words you use will play an important part in you being considered further.
- Remember to update your CV as it’s needs to be amended and rewritten after each new job, role, or assignment you have undertaken
Don’t leave gaps in the dates of your work history,
