  • Having used one agency where the number of candidates dried up fairly quickly I chanced upon Spotlight Recruitment. After briefing them on my requirements I was delighted to receive a steady stream of suitable applicants for my vacant marketing position.

  • Spotlight have never let us down in finding the perfect individual for the mix of marketing roles that we have. Special praise must go to Camilla for her understanding and ability to find high quality prospective candidates.

  • THANK YOU for helping to find our Digital Manager replacement. Spotlight did their thing efficiently and thoroughly. You’re a real tonic in an industry that’s become highly unreliable. So thanks to you ALL!

CV Advice

Your CV should be a clear presentation of your work history to date, as well as information on education, interests and more. Given the volume of CVs being sent for jobs, it is essential to make your CV stand out, and our CV advice and tips tell you how to do it.

Your web profile – Check that sites like LinkedIn have the same dates and information as your CV and be aware that a future employer may look at other social media profiles.

Short and sweet – Two pages (maximum three) will be enough. A CV should be a concise snapshot of your career history to date, with detail in the right places.

Keep it accurate – Make sure all information is correct, from dates to grades. Spotlight checks candidates’ CVs carefully, and an employer definitely will.

Personal profile – Why would you not want to add a personal snapshot at the top that sums you up and sells your skills and experience? Keep it relevant.

Look and feel – A CV should be easy reading, using the same font and point sizes throughout, with headings aligned and looking neat and tidy. If there is even one spelling error, this could mean your CV does not get considered.

Are your interests interesting? Make sure your interests are a wise choice, and demonstrate certain traits that will appeal to an employer. Think carefully.
