CV Advice

Employers receive multiple applications for each role they recruit. Initial shortlisting is purely on assessment of your CV. Your CV is your main marketing tool and will either open or firmly close doors for you, so it is important to get it right.

  • Be honest – every detail in your CV will be thoroughly checked, if not at interview stage then certainly once a job offer has been made. By falsifying information relating to qualifications or experience you will jeopardise any offer of employment
  • Be concise – try to keep the CV to 2 -3 pages; any more than this is unnecessary
  • Tailor your CV to each role for which you apply and include details of responsibilities for each of your previous roles

Kind Words From Happy Customers

What other people thought about the service provided by Velocity

Catherine has supplied me with staff over a number of years, I have always found her to be the ultimate professional in the way she deals with customers like myself or with the staff who work for her. I would recommend Catherine and her company to any company who are looking for an agency to supply there temporary staff or to recruit full time employees on their behalf.

Catherine has always managed to find me the jobs I was the best fit for over the years, thanks to her expertise and broad experience in Recruitment Industry. I would recommend Velocity to anyone.

The one word I use to describe Cat Slevin and Velocity recruitment is Trustworthy. Let’s face it, when you need to put your faith in someone to keep you in work and essentially put food on your table and a roof over your head, it probably the highest compliment that I can give. Cat has never once let me down and is always there when needed. This is the best recruitment company experience I have ever had.

Our company has been working with Catherine for the last ten years, with great results. She always provides quality temporary staff for our production department at short notice, a fair number of whom have been so good that we have recruited them permanently! Catherine always aims to send us people with specific skills for the job we have at the time, so we value her expertise. I would definitely recommend Catherine and Velocity Recruitment Solutions to any local manufacturing company.
