This section replaces the old Skills Section, which is no longer required by prospective employers.

Career Summary

This section speaks for itself. Your career will be listed, the most recent role first, and should ideally cover the last 10 years. Any roles before this time will still be included on the CV under additional roles, but we will only require duties and responsibilities for positions held in the last 10 years. If you are a school/university leaver, this title may change to work experience and we also include a separate section to include any unpaid roles, entitled Voluntary Work. It is extremely important to include all working experiences and if you have any gaps within your employment, to go travelling or to raise a family, this must also be mentioned. It order to disguise any gaps from any unemployment as much as we can, we will only include the years, not the months, of when you carried out your roles.
