CV tips

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 which makes you suitable for a role or vacancy.

*We have different levels of candidates and the following tips are just a basic guide to putting together a great CV.

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.
  • Referees contact details for obtaining references
 (with your permission)

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

punctuation, and grammar for mistakes
  • Don’t make your CV layout too fancy or complicated
 in it’s use of templates and graphics
