CV tips

Let’s talk CVs – please follow these simple tips before applying to TSS:


  • Include your name, location and contact details: telephone number and email address please 
  • Work experience in reverse chronological order: we need to know what you’ve done most recently
  • Focus on your admin experience: we only recruit for admin roles so your experience in this area should be prominent and easy to find 
  • Two page limit: ensure your experience is summarised concisely so your CV is not too long
  • Avoid long paragraphs of text: include clear headings that show your job title, employer and dates of employment with a bullet-point list of your main duties there
  • Ensure there are no grammatical errors or spelling mistakes 
  • Do not include personal information such as date of birth, gender, marital status, nationality or photographs on your CV
  • No PDFs please – our online system works best with MS Word documents so please ensure you send your CV in this format
