About this CV template:

A fresh, clean and simple CV template that makes an impression with prospective employers. A very subtle border surrounds the page - this is of course optional and can be removed by visiting the 'Page Layout' tab in Word and clicking the 'Page Borders' button. Overall we've designed this template to be clean and free from graphical elements but also, to stand out from a pile of CVs - in the right way. The font is deliberately traditional, compensating for the less traditional large headings and subtle style elements.

Easy customisations for your CV template

So you’ve found your perfect CV template – what now? There’s plenty you can do to make it your own. Try:

It’s also really easy to add new sections, change the font, alter the colour of the details and so on. Customising your CV template couldn’t be easier!

What do your hobbies say about you on your CV? 

Most people don’t realise how important the hobbies and interests section can be when it comes to writing a CV. Obviously your skills, qualifications and experience are far more important first and foremost, however a skilled and creative CV pushes the boundaries further and milks every last drop of those two important pages to ensure the hiring manager picks up that phone to request an interview.

What your hobbies say about you 

The employer wants to know if you’re hard working, punctual, passionate, creative, dedicated, dynamic, have great communication, and so on. There are some great places to showcase this on your CV including the ‘work experience’ section, but what a lot of people don’t realise is that your ‘hobbies and interests’ section can also show this – and in some cases can have just as much impact as the rest of your CV.

A voluntary worker is a hard worker 

If you currently volunteer your free time or have done in the past, this is a great way to start your hobbies section. Most people go for the same old boring, ‘I like to read books and watch movies’, which is not worth the paper it’s written on!

If you volunteer your free time to help an organisation, charity, or local country park, you are proving to the employer that you are not afraid of hard work. Someone who is willing to give up their own free time to help others is a fantastic trait to have, and one which would be welcomed in any company.

Creative hobbies show creative people 

If you are applying for a role whereby creativity is important, then why not show the hiring manager what you like to do in your spare time. Whether it’s building model aeroplanes, playing the piano, or acting at your local amateur dramatics theatre, all of these hobbies show just how creative you are.

It doesn’t matter if your hobbies have no relevance to the role, as creative people can’t stop being creative just because they are doing something different!
