    -Add your details at the top of the cv: email address and telephone number

    -I wouldn't detail your GCSE grades like that but say however many GCSEs you have between A*-C

    -Try to give more specific examples proving you have the qualities you're mentioning.

    -Try to avoid paragraphs as they make it harder to read. Go with bullet points. Add your a levels under education so it's more organised and easier to see.

    -I'd suggest you get rid of the paragraph of working in a team under the interests category. It doesn't really add anything.


    I'm no expert but start with that and wait for feedback from other users here.

    Thank you! I will make them changes, I do have my details on the original at the top but I'm obviously not going to put my address and phone number on this forum

    I'd urge you to use a template for your CV. It looks very much all over the place at the moment.
