    I think most places require some form of record and a personal statement which gives the employer some indication of who you are and any relevant skills. Saying that I do know a few places that break the mould in this regard and prefer a face to face interview, these places are located in Edinburgh. Is there a particular reason why you are asking about requiring a cv?

    because i really want to get a job for the summer and starting earning for personal reasons.

    simply a CV i'm not sure what to do, i mean there are loads of templates online but i just don't know which to use and all that

    I just remembered that I was offered a job in Glasgow holding a stick for five hours on a Saturday for £40.00 I think it advertised the local meat market (no pun intended ) So definitely opportunities out there. Just to expand on some of the earlier responses, I think the KEY point is that most places will not accept a traditional CV but ask that you apply using their own pro=forma or website. I previously worked at HMV during the summer a few years back and was asked to complete an application form, co-op and Tesco were the same in this regard, , During the few months I applied to McDonalds where my friends dad is a supervisor and was asked to register on their website which basically allows you to submit a CV on their website.

    I hope you find something soon, whenever I was asked to complete an online form or template application, I just used all my CV related stuff and pasted it.

    yep just being doing a bit of research right now and a lot of job sites are saying 'no experience necessary' for care home workers. Great! I have always wanted to work in one. thanks for pointing me in the right direction!!

    I think if you considered making a CV it would open up your options. The information you put on say, Sainsburys forms is what you need to put in a CV anyway so...

    There's plenty CV makers online and you're going to have to make a CV at one point anyway, why not do it now?
