Elegance CV template in MS Word (free download)

This CV template uses two free fonts - Coventry Garden and Garamond - together with our own custom icons and a splash of blue accent to create a very sophisticated elegant CV layout. There's space for a photo or, if you prefer, you can delete the photo and shift up the information in the column on the left. This CV uses tables to create the layout (with borders hidden) so we've included a quick layout guide with the template to make it easier to add more sections or delete what's there already.

About this CV template:

A very stylish CV template that is suitable for a wide range of roles. This template is really easy to customise, once you can see the simple table layout that it uses (see the picture included within the CV template). The fancy font is entirely free and it's easy to change the headings - just remember that with this font, you'll need to put CAPS on for the first letter of the word and LOWERCASE on for the rest of the letters to create the fancy tail effect on your first letter.

  • This template uses tables with the borders hidden to achieve its layout. It may be helpful to review the layout below before attempting to add new sections or delete existing ones.

Customisation tips:

  • To add a further role to the WORK EXPERIENCE section, copy and paste one of the previous roles and add it underneath the final role. Make sure you copy BOTH ROWS of the section (the row containing the job title and the row containing the description).
  • To add a further line to the education section, simply tab through the lines – when you reach the final line, tab again and a further line will be added.
  • If you copy and paste a heading, make sure you get BOTH ROWS (each heading is made up of two rows).

We hope you love this new admin CV template as much as we do!

Who is this admin CV template for?

Although we have suggested that this is the perfect admin CV template, this layout would suit applicants applying for a very wide range of roles. Both professional and administrative job hunters would benefit from this template.

For those looking for a very well presented admin CV template, this is a great choice. Its clean, fresh appearance and focus on work experience makes it a great CV template for admin assistant roles.

Print on high quality paper using a good printer that is capable of printing both black and colour for the perfect administrator CV template.

Does paper quality really matter for a CV?

Although most job seekers email their CV to a recruitment agency or employer, you may also have the option to hand it in directly. This would work really well for a retail position, for example.

You should never underestimate the power of personally handing your CV to the employer. The impact it can have is far greater than applying electronically. It will make you much more memorable, and puts a personality to an application.

If this is something you want to try, make sure you use quality paper for your CV. The standard budget A4 paper you can buy tends to be too thin. The feel of the paper in the employer’s hand is very important. If it’s too thin it will give off a ‘cheap’ vibe and will not project professionalism.

Thicker paper has a much better feel to it, and projects professionalism and creates a quality application. Although the employer may not realise it when reading your CV, the thickness and quality of the paper makes a difference.

Consciously, but more often than not subconsciously, the employer will instantly judge your presentation within a matter of seconds. From your clothes and appearance, to the quality of the paper; your overall presentation will be scrutinised.
