John Smith BSc

Or

John Smith

Sun Certified Java Programmer

You should make sure you include the following information:

  • One telephone number
  • One E-mail address
  • Your full address and postcode.
  • Nationality (whilst this is not a prerequisite, we would recommend doing so to avoid the recruiter jumping to incorrect conclusions)

Non-UK Citizen

If you are not a UK Citizen you should include details of your visa or your right to work in the UK, even if you are an EU Citizen. Many recruiters and hiring managers may be new to the industry and not fully aware of the restrictions and/or which countries are in the EU.

Your contact information should all be included in the header of the CV to avoid taking up too much space in the actual CV.
