How to edit our free Admin Assistant CV template

The great thing about this free admin assistant CV template is that it’s so easy to edit. This is because we want you to be able to customise our free CV templates to suit your needs.

Here are some things you might want to do with this CV template:

Add more pages

If you need more pages, then don’t worry. You can add more pages to this CV template if you wish. Please note that the background will repeat as you add content.

However, you will need to add in the light blue rectangle on your new page. Copy it from a previous page; click on your new page and press paste. The easiest way is to enable the gridlines or text boundaries, as it makes it simpler to line everything up.

There’s one more step – click on the rectangle at the top, right click and choose SEND TO BACK > SEND BEHIND TEXT. You only need to do this on the third page if you intend to type in the narrow column on that page.

Be careful when considering going over two pages. A three page or more CV is not typically expected by the employer, with the exception of certain professions – science, medical, research, and so on. If you have a lot of information and are struggling to keep to two pages, see this helpful guide in the Guardian: How to keep your CV to two pages.

Replace the icon

You might want to replace the icon with a photo. This is really easy – simply right click on the picture and choose ‘Change picture’.

Wondering how to get a rounded CV photo? Check out our article ‘8 easy ways to customise your CV template in Word 2010‘ which explains how (plus there’s loads of other tips and tricks for editing your template).

Background issues

There’s a bug that’s been in several earlier versions of Microsoft Word (and is still there in the Word 2013 preview). Although the background looks perfect in Microsoft Word and should print just fine, sometimes it tiles in PDF format. This can make the Administrator CV look a little busier than intended!

If you want to save your CV as a PDF, there’s a workaround as follows:

  • Remove the “page background” that you’ve put in.
  • Open the header pane.
  • Insert the image, set its text wrapping to Behind Text, and drag its sizing handles so it covers the whole page. You may want to use the controls on the Picture Tools tab to reduce the contrast and increase the brightness.
  • Close the header (Source)

If instead you would like to remove the background image on this CV template, go to PAGE LAYOUT > PAGE COLOUR > FILL EFFECTS. From there you can upload a new background (which can simply be a white blank square if you don’t want to have any background at all).
