Keep your CV professional:

  • Use a standard font type i.e. Arial or Calibri, avoid anything flashy.
  • Use plain white or cream paper; avoid coloured or marbled effect papers.
  • Keep personal email addresses 'business like', asking a prospective employer to reply to you using informal email addresses such as the below does not look very professional!
    •  flossie@hotmama.co.uk
    •  animallover1990@email.co.uk
    •  whatevs89@address.co.uk
  • Avoid adding anything which could impede your application.

Do not add:

  • a photo
  • your date of birth
  • your marital status
  • your nationality

It is important to stress that any reputable Recruitment Agency or Employer should be matching you in accordance with your skills and ability to 'do the job', and not your age or nationality or how you look.

Example CV
Keep it short and clear
  • Avoid writing a lengthy biography! Keep your CV to a maximum of two pages long.
  • Do not go into detail about jobs you held 10+ years previously unless they are relevant to the role that you are applying for.
  • Ensure that your CV looks uncluttered. Provide adequate spacing so that your previous roles are easy to spot and digest by the reader.
  • Avoid jargon or abbreviations that would not be recognisable to the employer.
Tailor your CV
  • Ensure that the reader can see the relevance of your CV to the role that you are applying for.
  • Tailor your CV to match the role that you are applying for by ensuring the key requirements meets the reader's eye. Unless the jobs that you are applying for are identical, you do not have to use the same CV every time. Keep two or three versions.
  • If you are applying for jobs that have slightly different tasks or responsibilities remember that relevance is the key! Therefore, adapt these accordingly.
  • A prospective employer will take on average 30 seconds to quickly glance over your CV before making the decision to read on further. Therefore ensure that you start your CV with an ‘opening profile’. This is what an employer will see and read first. It should be a short summary of your experience, skills and qualities, and be relevant to what the employer is looking for.
  • Put your employment history under a heading. This should be in date order, starting with the most recent position first. If you have any gap in your employment history, ensure that you explain the reason(s).
  • Briefly outline your main duties within each role. Concentrate more on highlighting your achievements and results. Ensure you state what you have actually achieved with hard evidence i.e. “Generated an average of £1,000 pound profit per week” rather than “a proven tract record in sales”.
  • Put any qualifications and training attended under a separate section heading after the ‘Employment History’ section.
Send a covering letter
  • Always send a covering letter with your CV, unless you are instructed specifically not to do so. Ensure that you highlight within your letter a minimum of three pieces of information from you CV that are most relevant to the position that you are applying for.
Finally, check that your CV is accurate
  • Always ensure that you conduct a spelling and grammar check.
  • Always ‘proof read’ your CV and if possible, get someone else to also read it.

I am what you could call a more mature temporary worker who was bored after retirement just sitting at home.

I contacted the Ilford Branch looking for a permanent role within Office Administration.
