Hello Silvia ~ I can offer some advice to people looking for work in Britain, some of which might be relevant more generally.

Here's my tip about CVs for people applying for work in Britain, from someone with experience of both ends of the scale: on one hand job-hunting, unsuccessfully as well as successfully, and on the other of selecting and interviewing applicants.

--- Absolute Top Tip for CVs---

====== Keep Your CV short! =========== Limit Your CV to 2 pages!! =========

Your CV should be 1 or 2 pages; or at the very most and only if you have a lot of relevant experience and you need a bit extra space, 3 pages.

You always hear this advice, but for some reason people find it hard to follow the advice and they put too much information into their CVs. This is much more of a problem than making it too short, because it seems to be a temptation people can't resist.

 Remember the purpose of your CV. It is not to tell the recruiter your life history. It is not even to tell the recruiter about all your work experience. The CV is really (with the covering letter) to help get you noticed and into the next stage, perhaps a telephone chat, or perhaps a formal interview. It is at these later stages that you can provide more information and details. But first you must get noticed!

Many job adverts are now dawing more than 50 applications and even more than 100. A good recruiter will always look at all the applications and try to consider them fairly, but with that sort of number, recruiters cannot possibly give every CV detailed attnetion. A long CV, full of information, whether it is relevant or not, is less likely to get the attention it deserves than a short, concise CV. Then there are less scrupulous recruiters, who will find easy ways of reducing the pile of applications and one of the ways they do that is simply not to look at longer CVs.

If it's a help, I can leave more tips here, about what to put into the CV and what to leave out, and some about interviews or generally about finding work in Britain.
