How to write a successful CV

We recognise that this may be a stressful time to look for new employment.  Here are our top 7 CV tips to help you get started.

  1. Make your CV aesthetically pleasing by finding the right balance of white space and text. Use a readable font and be consistent with bold, caps and italic writing.

  2. Wow the recruiter in the upper middle part of your CV to capture their attention. Be concise and use bullet points to keep your CV under two sides of A4.

  3. Make sure your employment history is in chronological order to make your career journey and experience clear to the reader.

  4. Consider the employer’s needs and read the job description to tailor your CV to the job you are applying for.

  5. Make sure your key achievements are outlined in your work history. Try backing up your statements with data and examples.

  6. Spell check everything and remove any jargon.

  7. Always be honest and factual in your CV.

We hope these tips are helpful and go some way in achieving CV success.
