Dust off the cobwebs – clean up your CV

Did you know that it only takes recruiters and Direct employers just 6 seconds to decide whether they want to look further into a CV?

Only include the basics of the role and the important parts which relate to the role you are applying for. You can discuss the rest in more detail over the phone or in an interview if they are keen to find out more.
