Tips

  • Working with children: Being a Health Visitor means that you will be working with and around children most of the time. You should indicate on your CV that you like/love/enjoy working with children and making a positive impact on them at these crucial moments of their lives.
  • Travelling: It is a fact that you will, most likely, be making daily trips to and from clinics, GPs, community centres and residential homes to meet patients. Therefore, mentioning that you have a driving license and your own method of transportation (car) will give a nice boost to your CV.

Good Luck!
