Top CV Tips and Guidelines

  • Always ensure that your CV is no more than two pages long
  • A key requirement for this job position is having excellent “organisational skills” therefore ensure you have given real-life examples of your organisational skills.
  • How to write a CV with no experience? In this case, you would want to put more emphasis on your education, skills, personal qualities and achievements rather than on your work experience. Ideally, try to find a voluntary part-time position in an admin role to gain experience and also potentially attain a good employment reference.

Good Luck!
