Do you need some help writing your CV?

Do you need some help writing your CV? Then we have some hints, tips and advice. Learning the art of good CV writing is going to help you to land the job opportunity you apply for.

Your CV is designed to be a summary of your experience, skills and education.

In the world of recruitment, it is often said that employers will spend a maximum of 30 seconds reviewing a CV. This is not very long to make a great impression and stand out from the crowd.

Your CV should be written with one purpose in mind – to make somebody want to meet you in person.

Target your CV to the job, it is very common to have more than one CV, ready for the different opportunities which might arise.
Consider your layout. Your CV must be clear, logical and easy to read. There are plenty of downloadable CV templates online.

Keep it concise, the general rule is not to go over 2 or 3 pages.

Avoid cliche's, don’t use statements like “I love working as part of a team”, “I’m dynamic” or “I have good attention to detail” as they lose their impact, employers want to hear about ‘YOU’

Make the content do the talking, not the CV template you have used. A fancy layout and bright colours are unnecessary. Save selling your personality for the interview

Proof read what you have written thoroughly, and try to make sure your spelling and grammar are perfect
Honesty is the best policy, never be tempted to lie, or exaggerate your skills and experience on your CV

The interview will be in the bag!!
Keep your personal statement brief and use it to promote what you could add the business you are hoping to work for.

Are you a Parent helping your Teenager to find work?

Are you a Parent helping your Teenager to find work? Then we can help you with the process.
We are more than aware that not all teenagers and young people want to continue learning and go on to higher and further education. For them a traineeship, an apprenticeship, or a job might be the best option. However, the majority of the information out there is geared heavily towards teenagers continuing in education for as long as possible.
Our database is divided into three age based sectors 13-15 year olds, 16-17 year olds and 18+
If your teenager is under 16 then they will only be able to seek out part-time work, but the skills and experience they gain from doing a part time job will prepare them for any future opportunities, as well as giving them some money of their own to spend.
We wish that more employers would consider introducing apprenticeship schemes. There is still some Government assistance for those firms willing to offer places. Our own data and research shows that there are thousands of teenagers aged 16-17 who would prefer to work as an apprentice, if the places were out there.
Older teenagers and school leavers are generally more focused on their options and whether or not further education is right for them. An 18 year old with real work experience will stand out to employers as being work ready.
The GCSE and A Level Results will be be announced soon and choices will have to be made.
We encourage all parents to visit the Parents & Guardians section of our website and pick up some useful tips and advice.

Is your firm reaching its Corporate Social Responsibility goals?

Is your firm reaching its Corporate Social Responsibility goals? If you are a business owner and you care about being a socially responsible employer, then providing an #opportunity for a #teenager or #youngperson will help you to achieve your goals. Most firms have a requirement to have a CSR Policy in place and their suppliers and customers will have obligations to trade with firms that do take CSR seriously. By taking on a #trainee or having an #apprenticeship scheme, your firm will retain customers and may attract new ones.
We have a business model that can supply you with talent for £90.00 per month. We ensure that only pre-screened candidates suitable for the role are presented to you for interview.
We have thousands of registered teenagers and young people looking for an opportunity.
The registered candidates are located all over the UK and are keen to find roles locally.
Why not ring our team on 0161 706 0431 or 07387 758 056 and ask us how many registered candidates we have in your area? We are always happy to help.
