CORE SKILLS & EXPERIENCE

 
This is your chance to write about you as a person. Why do you want this job and why would you be good at it?

If you work well in a team then write about a time when you worked well with others to achieve a good result… Use the job advert to pick out what skills the job needs and then use examples to show how you are the perfect person for the job.
 
You can either write this as a short paragraph or as bullet points.
