A CV is a document in which we briefly describe our work experience and qualifications. The CV provides potential employees with information. When we apply for a job we send in both an application and a CV.

A CV should contain the following information:

  • Personal details
  • Work experience
  • Education
  • Other: for example information about positions of trust we hold, voluntary work with organisations, computer skills, courses we have taken, language skills, hobbies, care work and our qualities
  • Referees

When listing our work experience we always list the last job we have had first and work our way backwards in time. This is also the case when we list our education. You can find some example CVs to the right.

Why is it important for a CV to look nice and be clearly set out?
