Keep it relevant
Make sure your skills, experience and education highlight your major achievements. Include facts and figures where appropriate to demonstrate your competencies. Keep the essential criteria – the key skills and experience for the role – in mind.
We will be looking to see how well you demonstrate these in your application, so don’t just tell us where you’ve worked and for how long. Tell us what you did in each role, how you did it, and the impact you made. Show off a bit, so we’re in no doubt you’ve got the skills and experience we’re looking for.
Top tip: Highlight the keywords in the job description and check that you’ve covered your relevant experience on your CV.
We’re mainly interested in your skills and qualifications, but we also like to know what relevant interests you have outside of work. So give us details about your experience at things like hackathons or involvement with meet-ups.
Also make sure you regularly update your CV. We have opportunities coming up all the time on our careers site, so the right role could come up at any time.
