Your application

Your CV and cover letter introduce you to us. It is crucial that they accurately and succinctly convey who you are and what you will bring to Credo.


Many applicants either write too much or too little - a CV for consultancy should ideally be one to two sides of A4.

What you must include:

Personal details: Please include all basic information, such as a daytime contact number, e-mail and your address.

Qualifications: Your degree result/or equivalent (expected or achieved) is crucial, as are your A-Level grades or equivalent and any other professional qualifications.

Work experience & employment: It is not enough to list each previous job. You should briefly explain your roles and responsibilities and draw out the experiences you think are relevant to us.

Extra-curricular activities: Someone who has taken on responsibilities away from their studies or formal job role shows drive, determination and interest. When have you led a team, run a project or made a difference?

Other skills: Make your skills stand out - languages, IT ability, etc.

Be interesting: Credo is genuinely interested in your hobbies, interests and travel. We want to work with interesting people.

What you could leave out:

Covering letter
