This was really helpful for a similar role. It is more of a CV example than a template.

Why you should custom write your CV for each role 

Most of us will only ever write one CV in our lifetime and then simply update it after each job. Unfortunately this isn’t going to impress a new employer and it’s important to realise that a CV should require much more of your time when it comes to applying for another job.

The hiring manager likes to feel special 

It’s the hiring manager’s job to sort through the huge pile of CV’s that land on his or her desk (or via e-mail if it’s not the 1960’s lol), and create a ‘possible interview’ pile. If you have a CV that hasn’t changed since you started work 10 years ago, it’s obviously going to show its age and won’t do you any favours.

The hiring manager wants to read a CV that perfectly shows how well suited you are to the role, and if they have to read between the lines it’s probably likely that you’ll end up on the ‘no’ pile.

Don’t use a generic CV 

A generic CV is very easy to spot and will fail to create a great first impression. Sending out a generic CV doesn’t always mean you don’t get an interview, but when you are very likely up against other applicants that have just as many qualifications and skills as you have and they’ve taken the time to tailor their CV to the role, you can clearly see how you are instantly at a disadvantage.

A custom written CV is a passionate one 

A custom written CV shows that you are passionate about the role and the company, and that you have clearly listened to what they were asking for. It also shows you are hard working and an ‘outside the box’ thinker. If you are willing to put in the extra time to write your CV specifically for a new role, you are clearly the kind of person they are looking for.

Use keywords from the job advert 

The whole idea behind custom writing a CV to a specific role is to show how you are on the same page as the employer, and what better way to do that than by using their own keywords from the job advert itself.
