How to write the perfect CV for nurseries across the South West

At Class Recruit we often get candidates asking us how to write the perfect CV for working in Nurseries across the South West.

As well as being specialist recruiters for the Early Years sector in the region since 2009, we have helped 100's candidates to secure their dream roles in a number of nursery settings in the South West.

The starting point for any candidate is their CV.

When creating a CV for working in nursery settings, it is important to go back to the age of 18 and highlight the reason for any employment gaps of three months or longer.

These reasons could include studying, travelling, or maternity leave but it is critical to include these details to give Early Years employers a clear picture.

Within a CV profile about yourself, state the reason you wish to work within the Early Years sector as well as what you are looking for from the role.

Include when you can start, and if you can provide full or part-time hours.

Nursery settings like to see candidates with transferrable skills listed in their CVs, so make sure you include these details.

This could include voluntary or paid work, and how it is relevant to a nursery setting.

Ensure that any nursery qualifications and training courses completed are listed in the CV.

This information should be clearly listed on the first page of the CV under Education. Sector-specific training highlights a clear commitment.

Finally, always tailor the CV to the specific role you are applying for.
