Why do we ask for a Resume or CV

A Resume or Curriculum Vitae (CV) details your education, work experience and any volunteer roles you’ve held. You won’t have to try and cover up a career break to raise children, simply tell us about your skills and unpaid experience, such as whether you are a good communicator. This helps us to know your background before your interview.

If you don’t have a current CV – perhaps you’re self-employed, retired or have been out of the workforce with carer responsibilities – feel free to download and use this template.

Formal education qualifications and job experience are not essential but we still need a CV, with your name and contact details. If we know what you’ve been doing and what your skills and hobbies are we can understand you better.

One to two pages is an optimal length and PDF is the preferred file type, although larger files in a range of formats, including Word, can be accepted.
