Career and jobs

Application tips

We’ll use your CV to assess your suitability for the role.  Use it to tell us about your skills, abilities, experience and qualifications; focusing on what is relevant for the role based on our job description.  It’s best to keep your CV short and succinct, no more than two A4 pages will do just nicely. Keep it professional and don’t include unnecessary information such as your date of birth, as we don’t need to know that. But do let your achievements and personality shine through as that’s what’s important to us!

CV’s do take a while to pull together and include lots of information, (such as previous employment dates), that you might need to dig out and find; so put the kettle on, enjoy a cuppa and set some dedicated time aside to do this.  Putting the hard work in now and pulling together a really great CV, will grab the hiring manager's attention and get you to the next stage “The Interview”.
