CV hints and tips

  • Be sure to include contact details, a personal profile, education, work experience, skills and achievements
  • Read the job description carefully and pull out key words and phrases to use in your CV
  • Read your CV out loud or ask a friend/family member to read it to you. This will help you notice errors or repetition and give you a general feel for how your experience is being perceived
  • Make sure the dates displayed on your CV are accurate and up-to-date
  • If there is a noticeable gap in your employment (three months-plus) you may want to reference this in a cover letter. There’s no need to go into great detail (particularly if it’s a personal matter,) but the recruitment team and hiring manager likely will question this at a later date if you do not make direct reference to it

Security Requirements

Working with us is subject to security clearance and export control restrictions. This means your nationality, any previous nationalities, and/or place of birth may limit roles you can carry out for the organization.

  • We’ll complete a Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) clearance before you start your role with us. Timeframes on your clearance will depend on how quickly your referee returns the references. Once we have the references, clearance can be completed within two days.
  • When you join us, you’ll get a link to complete your security clearance, if you haven’t got clearance already. We highly recommend you complete your security clearance as soon as you receive the link. Your access to certain projects and documents will be restricted until this is complete. When you submit the security clearance form, timescales on clearance will vary – most take approximately six weeks.
