If you are a candidate looking for your next opportunity “New Year, New Job”, we have put together 10 top tips for creating your CV

  1. The Basics – Start your CV with your personal details including name, contact details (telephone number & email address), where you are based – this doesn’t need to be our full address, just the Town or City in which you live would suffice i.e Wigan, Preston, Ormskirk etc, and if you have one your LinkedIn profile
  2. Presentation is key – Ensure your CV is clearly presented, bullet points are a good way to make your CV easier to read, as oppose to paragraph after paragraph
  3. Personal Profile / Summary – This should be located on the first page of your CV underneath your personal information – research shows that the upper middle area of the first page is where the recruiters eye will naturally fall – so make sure this is where you put the most information to secure you that all important interview
  • A brief of your experience i.e I have over 10 years Reception / Secretarial / Accounts experience to date…..
  • What makes you right for their role
  • About you – what kind of person are you?
  1. Understand the job description for the role you are applyingread the job description thoroughly, matching your skills and experience to the key points in their role and highlighting this in a clear way on your CV, both in your personal profile and in your job roles, putting the most relevant to the role at the top
  2. Bullet Points – Bullet points are a great, snappy way to list your duties in each of your roles it is an easy way for employers to quickly pick out the key points that they are looking for in their role – make sure you tailor these to the job / person specification
  3. Education this varies on the kind of role you are applying for as to where you would put this on your CV – for example if you are a graduate looking for your first role relevant to your Degree I would suggest you put your Education on the first page underneath your summary so the recruiter can quickly see your qualified for the role, however if the role in which you are applying for relies more on work experience I would put your education on page 2 as the recruiter would need to be drawn to your career first and foremost.
  4. Skills / Achievements Ensure you list skills relevant for the role in which you are applying and any achievements    (Page 2)
  5. ReferencesThis is personal preference whether you put this on your CV, or put available on request – there is no right or wrong, if you do decide to list them they should be someone who has employed you either currently or in the past who can vouch for your skills and experience, or if you haven’t worked before it is fine to use a Tutor or Teacher as a referee.  You should try to include 2 if possible.
  6. Keep your CV up to date this is very important especially if you are registered on various job boards, recruiters want to know what you are doing now so make sure this is maintained regularly
  7. ProofreadThere is nothing more important than your CV being accurate – this is the employers first exposure to your attention to detail – you have to get it right!
