Over the last few months I’ve been helping coaches from the around the world with enhancing their CV’s, and I’ve received tremendous feedback and acknowledgment for such efforts and contributions. This has resulted in being tagged and contacted through various social media platforms to assist more coaches with their CV.
I’m no expert in designing these and do not preach to know everything about CV’s, I’ve gained experiences like many of us in applying for different roles and in many cases my CV not even standing out/being selected. I’ve experiment over the years with different formants, templates and designs from Microsoft Word, 4 page CV’s or various softwares and companies. Let’s be honest there isn’t a right or wrong way to create a CV, but what we can attempt to create a CV that will hopefully stand out. Providing a quality first impression, make employers want to read the whole thing and learn more about you, attractive, neat and well laid out and user friendly also easy to read for best possible opportunity to be considered for an interview or the role.
Additionally, I was fortunate to teach a “Work Experience” Module within my PGCE FE teachers training and gained further experience supporting students within this process.
Here are 3 OLD examples of CV’s I once had and used when applying for jobs:
With experience, learning from others, receiving feedback and experimenting I’ve now got CV’s I’m proud and confident to use when and If I apply for jobs. These (see below) have gained interest from other coaches from around the world and have helped other people with theirs. CV’s can utilise interactive QR codes that can be linked onto further platforms to add an extra exciting element to your CV where employers can find more information about you.

Note: I’m not here to con people out of huge amounts of money for a CV, I’m only allocating for my own time. Also I won’t be taking any payment unless you’re 100% happy with the CV you’re receiving.
