    Top 5 CV tips from leading recruitment agent

    Whether applying for permanent or contract positions it’s important to remember that your CV creates your first impression; giving you a chance to show off all the attributes that make you the perfect choice for employers.

    As a leading job recruitment agency we are always asked for advice about writing the perfect CV, so today we thought we’d provide you with our Top 5 tips for perfecting your curriculum vitae.

    1. What makes you unique

    For every job you apply for you could be up against hundreds of other candidates so you need to make sure you stand out.

    2. Choose a clear layout

    Employers spend around 20 to 30 seconds scanning your CV so it needs to remain clutter-free and easy to read. The last thing a recruiter wants to do is to go hunting for the information that they are looking for so don’t hide it amongst an array of elaborate graphics, a multitude of fonts and/or colours.

    3. Tailor your CV to your audience

    It may sound like a time consuming process, but making the effort to tailor your CV to suit the requirements of each particular job that you are applying for can greatly increase your chances of securing an interview.

    4. Keep it error free

    It’s deceptively easy to make mistakes on your CV and exceptionally difficult to repair the damage once an employer gets it. As well as checking your spelling and grammar, make sure your employment dates match up and that you’ve provided the right phone number and email address.

    5. Keep your CV up-to-date

    When you put together a CV it’s often difficult remembering the projects you have been involved with and the achievements you have made. To avoid missing important pieces of information out, revisit your CV every month adding anything of importance, and cutting any information that is no longer required.
