This is a great CV template to catch an employer’s eye – so what else can you do to make it your own? Here are our suggestions:
Add a border
Wouldn’t this CV template look fab with a border all the way round each of the pages? Try changing the colour of the border from black to soft grey for an attractive contrast. Click here to watch our video showing you how.
Change the blue
You can change the blue to a different colour if you like. Watch this video to show you how to change the fancy text boxes to a different colour (and manipulate other parts of the text box such as the border).
Add a picture
You could insert a picture above your details – but a better layout would be to align your details to the left and add your picture to the right. Watch our video showing you how to do this. Wondering whether it’s a good idea to include a photo on your CV? Read our article “Should I include a CV photo?” which looks at all the pros and cons of doing so, to help you decide.
Customise to the job
