Worldy People’s expert team will guide you through this process and ensure you have the best fit possible for the role you are seeking.
The basic format should be as follows:
Start with a personal profile tailored to the role in question and identifies:
- Who are you?
- What do you have to offer?
- What are you aiming for in your career?
You can where appropriate add specific skills that are relevant to the role that you are applying for
Job Title, Company and start/end dates as a heading:
Always write in reverse-chronological order, with the most recent jobs at the top.
Then, use your work experience to demonstrate your relevant skills and abilities.
Outline your key responsibilities and where possible include relevant experience for the role that you are applying for to ensure this experience and skills are picked up in the first review
Key Achievements: You should also talk about the accomplishments and achievements, that you gained from each role. If it is a commercial position, then include sales figures, targets reached, overachievement etc
Tangible results: these include numbers and measures, showing savings or improvements. If you haven’t got exact figures, don’t leave them out, just give a truthful estimate.
People related: showcase experience related to people development, training, team-work etc.
Process/systems: give examples of how you have improved the way you or your team have done things, or changes to organisation structure.
This section should demonstrate your suitability for the role that you are applying for and should be tailored accordingly as the hiring team will often match against the job description.
Education should be included from GCSE (or equivalent) level onwards – in reverse-chronological order (with the most recent events at the top).
- A level (or equivalent)
- GCSE – State the number qualifications achieved and general grades you received (Maths and English at the very least).
Using particular course modules you’ve undertaken (that are relevant to the role) is also a great way to demonstrate your wider knowledge of the subject.
Style – Make your CV concise and uniform throughout. Only add pictures and logos, if it looks good and doesn’t make the document too large in MB.
