Personal Statement

This section is your opportunity to summarise the rest of the CV and convince the recruiter to get in touch. It is important to keep it brief, between 50-200 words, and outline who you are, the skills you have to offer, and your career aim.

Steer clear of generic comments such as “I work well in a team and also on my own”. Instead, add specifics that are relevant to your area of expertise (e.g. Category Management, Stakeholder Engagement, and Negotiation).

Your final sentence should be a genuine indication of what you are looking for in your next career move. This sentence will help to ensure that you are receiving calls about the right roles which are of real interest to you.

I have gained valuable experience in [area of expertise] at [organization name], and have a particular wealth of experience and skills in [specific area]. I graduated in [year] from [university name] with a [degree class] degree in [subject], and am now a [industry] professional.

I am looking for a [position you are looking for] opportunity within an [business type/industry] organization, where I can add real value, and which can offer me ongoing progression.


This is your chance to talk about your qualifications, academic and vocational. You should give detail about what you studied, where, and when, and list them in chronological order. If you have many of one qualification, such as GCSEs you might find it useful to group them together.


[Name of Course], [Course Location]
[Date M/Y – Date M/Y]

  • [X type of membership]

  • [Relevant seminars/one-day courses]


[University Name], [Location]
[Date M/Y – Date M/Y]
[Degree type and honors (info on dissertation if relevant)]

[College/School Name]
[Date M/Y– Date M/Y]


  • [Subject] – [grade]

  • [Subject] – [grade]

  • [Subject] – [grade]


  • [Number] GCSEs, grades [range], including Maths and English


List any computer skills and systems you have used e.g. MRP. SAP and Excel. For MS packages it’s worth putting your competence level e.g. Intermediate or Advanced.

Employment History

This should be brief and, as a general rule of thumb, focus on the last 10 years of your career, or last three roles, in chronological order with the most recent at the top. You should highlight your key achievements and use bullet points rather than lengthy descriptions.

[Job Title], [Company Name] [Location]
[Date M/Y- Date M/Y]

[A bit about what they do and their turnover e.g. A bespoke manufacturer of electronic components with a turnover of £10 million]


  • Brief role overview

  • A breakdown of the products, services, categories that you buy and your spend

  • Details of any supervisory/management experience you have

  • Mention any systems or tools (e.g. SAP, Kanban, Lean)

  • Implemented [change] which resulted in [benefit]

Key achievements:

  • I saved [£X amount] on [service]

  • I renegotiated a contract on [subject] worth [£X amount] and saved [X%] for my company

  • I implemented [change] which resulted in [benefit]

  • I received an [award name] for [reason]


This section is not essential to include, but you may wish to have it, depending on the role you are applying for. It could be an opportunity to show a little more of your personality. However, be warned this can be very subjective, ensure anything listed here reinforces your application, and the idea that you’ll be the right fit for the role. If you don’t have any real relatable hobbies, it is probably best to omit this section.

Tackling hiring fraud guidance – free download

Hiring fraud is an insidious practice that undermines trust and poses significant financial and reputational risks for businesses. As employers strive to find the right talent, they must remain vigilant against fraudulent activities that can tarnish their operations and brand integrity.

Hiring fraud manifests in various forms, from falsified credentials and fabricated work histories to identity theft and impersonation. These tactics often deceive even the most astute recruiters, leading to the unwitting employment of unqualified or dishonest individuals. The consequences can be dire, ranging from decreased productivity and morale to legal liabilities and damage to company reputation.

Detecting fraudulent applications has become increasingly challenging. However, employers can use several strategies to safeguard their recruitment processes.

Most recently, Reed has contributed to the first guidance of its kind to help organisations protect their recruitment practices. ‘Tackling hiring fraud: the response to a growing problem’ serves as a frontline tool in the battle against fraudulent hiring activity.

Steps to a secure hiring process

The guide, fronted by the Better Hiring Institute, identifies nine types of fraudulent activity: reference fraud, qualification fraud, fake application documents, CV-based fraud, employment scams, manipulation of artificial intelligence, dual employment, immigration fraud and fraud as a result of recruitment agency usage. Each is addressed in detail with case studies and expert guidance on prevention.

As a rule, thorough background checks are indispensable. Employers should verify the authenticity of educational qualifications, professional certifications, and employment histories provided by candidates. Utilising reputable background screening services, such as Reed Screening, can help uncover discrepancies and ensure that prospective hires possess the credentials they claim.

Identity verification measures are essential. Adopting biometric authentication or identity verification technologies will help, reducing the likelihood of impersonation and identity theft.

Stringent interview processes can also serve as a deterrent against fraudulent candidates. Conducting multiple rounds of interviews, including in-person assessments, and soliciting detailed responses can identify genuine candidates from impostors.

Technology can automate and streamline recruitment processes. Candidate tracking systems equipped with fraud detection algorithms can flag irregularities in applications, adding a further layer of protection.

It can also help to raise awareness of hiring fraud with your employees – encouraging them to report suspicious activities and provide avenues for whistleblowing. Providing guidance on how to spot red flags can have a ripple effect, protecting both the business and employees from falling victim to fraud in their career.

Technology has enabled criminals to take advantage of traditional recruitment processes, and organisations must adapt if they are to avoid CV fraud, employment scams, manipulation of AI tools and many more tactics.

Reed Screening, together with Better Hiring Institute and other partners, have defined hiring fraud as any fraud committed during the hiring process, which may be committed by an individual against an organisation, or by an entity against a jobseeker.

This comprehensive guide, ‘Tackling hiring fraud: the response to a growing problem’, identifies how employers can protect their organisations, using expert advice on how to prevent the most common criminal activity.

"Employers should be very worried about hiring fraud. At Reed Screening, we have made huge progress over the last few years in making hiring faster globally, including being referenced by UK government for our work on digital right to work. However, with the development of technology and improvements in the speed of hiring, we have seen an acceleration and amplification of fraud."

The new Better Hiring Institute free guide on tackling hiring fraud, co-written by Reed Screening and Cifas, contains a really useful checklist for HRDs (human resources directors) and CPOs (chief people officers) to use to ensure the company they represent has all the right defences in place.
