How To Create An Effective CV 

Aim to produce a document that is a maximum of two pages with the aim of providing key details and information, but which also is brief and catches the eye of the recruiter.

The following sections are a MUST for any effective CV:

  • Personal Profile: Tell employers about your personality, the job you are seeking and the reasons behind this.
  • Qualifications: List the highest first and include the dates when they were awarded.
  • Skills: Bullet-point the skills you have acquired, at school, college, university and from your working experiences.
  • Work History: give highlights of your career to date especially focusing in upon the responsibilities this involved, staff you have managed, budget spends, operational duties and any special duties.
  • Qualifications: list the highest first and include the dates when they were awarded.
  • Hobbies and Interests: Tell the recruiter how you like to spend your free time and any goals you have set yourself to achieve that you are working on for the future.
  • References: You do not have to provide them on your CV however you may need to do this further down the line of the recruitment process.

The aim of a good CV is to get the recruiter interested so that you get an interview – this is the first hurdle to get over, then it is down to how you communicate on the day.

Good Luck!
