Functional CV

This CV format focuses on skills gained throughout your career. You can group them by topic (eg "organisational skills") and indicate achievements showing how you used these skills and the results you obtained.

This is a good choice if :

  • Want to use your skills to work in another area

  • You want to attract attention to the skills you developed early in your career and avoid being typecast in the type of job you have done recently

  • You had a career break and you consider the skills accumulated during this period are not as good as your work experience

  • You had different jobs during your career and you want to demonstrate clearly the skills you have to offer

  • You have held many and varied roles (part-time, freelance) which would make a chronological format complicated and confusing
