CV Writing Tips

A CV doesn’t have to be very long, but it is important to ensure it gives enough information for them to want to meet you

Contact Details – Make sure your CV has your full name, address, current mobile phone number and an email address

Personal Profile –Write a few lines about what you are currently doing, what role and sector you are interested in for your future career and any interests or experiences you have had that might help your application

Education – You must list all your GCSEs and actual/predicted grades. Also include any other qualifications or training you may have completed

Work Experience –Include any jobs or experience you have had so far and what duties you did or learned more about during the experience

Interests – If you have any hobbies or are involved in any sports teams or groups then add this to show good commitment and dedication

References – Include a reference such as a teacher or work experience or employer details. Always ask them before you include their details. 

Always ensure your CV reads clearly and is free from any spelling or grammar errors. A covering letter is also a good way to introduce yourself, tell the employer about the role you are applying for and why you think you would be a suitable candidate.
