Our tips to creating a CV and Cover Letter

Over the last 28 years since horticruitment was established, CV and cover letter writing and how these documents are submitted to either an agency or an employer has changed quite significantly with the use of applications and tools such as email, dropbox and pdf’s but overall the essence of what a CV should include in terms of your qualifications and or experience has remained the same. How you display your qualifications and or work experience has proved to make a significant difference as to whether or not your application  progresses onto interview stage. Please find below a CV and Cover Letter template which is based on our many years experience recruiting within the horticultural industry.
