Free, one to one CV support at Foundations

Foundations Furniture is providing free, one to one support to help you to create, update or improve your CV. 

The charity has been awarded funding to help local residents from many areas of Gateshead with a wide range of employment support. 

How We Can Help You With CV Writing

  • Review an existing CV and help you to make the updates needed to show an employer that you are the person they are looking for, or
  • Create a brand new CV using the best layout and content to show your skills and experience in the best way to help secure an interview.
