Whether it be starting from scratch or dusting off an old copy for updating, a CV is one of the most stressful elements of job hunting.
It is also one that can take up valuable time social workers don’t have.
With that in mind, Community Care has worked with experts in social work recruitment to produce a CV template and guide on what to include in your CV.
They are offered as examples of how a CV can look and what information should be included and shouldn’t be used prescriptively. You can also read our tips piece on how to write a CV.
This article is part of Community Care’s Careers Zone, a part of the site giving social workers and social care professionals advice and guidance about the next steps in their social work career. Like many other Careers Zone articles, this one was produced in collaboration with practising social workers and managers, and in association with the Local Government Association’s workforce and policy team. See all of our tips on the dedicated careers page. Download our social work CV template and advice page here.
