CANDIDATE CV FORMAT
Your CV is a vital component of your success – to be short-listed for interview by us, and in the final selection by our clients. It is important that you consider your skills and experience carefully before applying for the roles that we advertise. If you do not have the required skills or have inadequate experience, your application will not proceed (save for exceptional instances where other factors such as the overall quality of your CV is of interest to us).
Candidates should always follow the following formatting guidelines:
Look and Feel
It is vital that the basic layout of your CV is an enjoyable and easy read. We request that you create your CV using MS Word. We also recommend that your use normal MS Word formatting techniques.
We recommend that your CV includes the following headings:
Your Personal Profile should include your key skills and your personality should shine through.
Describe your significant achievements.
Where relevant, they should be tangible and be relative. For example winning a £1 million contract could be insignificant if you work for a £1 billion company, but an outstanding achievement if you work for a £2 million company and it increases in size by 33%!
Latest role first, work history should begin with the company name and dates employed [bold]
Then your job title [bold]
Then additional information about the company and your role [be brief]
- Your role and achievements [bullet format]
Education and Qualifications
Education and Qualifications should follow a similar format to your work history – Education Establishment name and dates attended [bold], latest first
Qualifications and grades obtained [bullet format]
IT Skills are important in almost all roles so describe them [bullet format]
Interests are also important because cultural fit is a significant element of the way companies select candidates.
Finally, candidates should note that, unlike other firms, we rarely re-format your CV because the way you create your CV not only describes your skills and experiences, but provides an insight to the way your mind works, your language and grammar skills and your personality.
Good luck and we will help you whenever we can!
