    When I did my work experience at E & Young in the summer just gone they reviewed my CV.

    They told me to always put education at the top of my CV followed by work experience.

    Plus agreed with the previous person about the personal statement, its a wee bit too long, I would of said 3 lines is more than enough? - its a CV?

    Theres nothing about responsibilities you've undertaken on your CV? (excluding work exp)??

    Interests seem a little vague, the place hiring you want to know about all aspects of you? Why not add in a little more about the sports and link it to a skill/responsibility.

    For example on mine, i've got about playing badminton doubles linked that to attention to detail and comms skills if you get the picture..

    Obvs these are suggestions but yeah those are the first things that come to mind..
