As a hard-working and proactive individual with three years’ experience in retail stock handling, I re-visited education in the form of an apprenticeship to take my skills and knowledge further. This has, together with my previous work experience, enabled me to work safely and productively in a warehouse environment with heavy goods, machinery and hazardous materials. I am fully capable of taking on a Warehouse Assistant/Operative role with a view to working up to managing a warehouse in the future.

CV length: The general rule regarding the length of a CV is to make it as short and concise as possible. If you haven’t got a lot of previous work experience or education; your CV should be 1 A4 page long. This is perfectly fine and acceptable, and there is no need to fill another page with useless “fluff”; it is not the length but the content that really matters.
