Free Online CV Workshop

Build an eye-catching CV in just 90 minutes with the support of our qualified advisers.

When it comes to finding a job, your CV is one of the most important tools you have. A good CV will show potential employers what a great fit you are for the role they have available.

There are loads of reasons your CV might not be quite up to scratch:

  • You're looking for your first job and don't have any work experience to talk about
  • You've had lots of short-term jobs and you're not sure what to include
  • You've been out of work, maybe due to illness or caring for family, and there's a gap on your CV
  • You want to start a new career and worry all of your previous experience isn't relevant 
  • You've applied for plenty of jobs but you're not reaching the interview stage 

If any of these sound familiar, we can help.

You might have been asking friends and family to help you out but it's time to ask the experts.
