Having a poorly written or badly structured CV is unacceptable in most circumstances but as a professional working within the bid and proposal industry, it’s simply indefensible.
If you are unable to effectively sell yourself, organisations will have little faith in your ability to sell their products and services.
In our experience, a candidate’s CV evolves over many years with tweaks here and there. Rarely has it been professionally reviewed against industry best practices. Bid Solutions offer the following services to maximise the potential of your CV.

And don't forget...
Employers receive numerous CVs for each vacancy, so first impressions count. A poorly structured or overly long CV won’t be read so:
Keep it concise with only the most relevant achievements and successes
Check for spelling mistakes; get someone else to read it to ensure it is grammatically correct
Never send a photocopy
Never include your salary details on it as this may rule you out before getting an interview
Your CV should be a maximum of three pages
Ensure there are no time gaps on your CV – if there are make sure these are fully explained
