This style of CV moves the focus away
from individual job roles. It highlights
transferable skills, which are explained
under headings. This makes it clear to
potential employers what Amanda could
bring to a job.
This section can be used to highlight experience
from recent jobs but also less recent jobs that may not
be as prominent on a Performance CV.
Amanda can change the
section headings for each job,
selecting the most appropriate.
