What does an effective CV look like?

It might have been a while since you last reviewed your CV so its important that you can show your impact as concisely as possible. Remember if Board Members are involved in the hiring process, they don’t have a huge amount of time to read long CVs. Try to condense your CV to 2-3 pages long, demonstrating your valuable experience in the job roles that align with Executive level responsibilities. You should be clear on the impact you have made as well as the achievements you have delivered in each organisation. 

Real thought leaders contribute to their wider network  

Thought leadership is key to being successful in a senior level position. Demonstrate your experience by attending quality networking events, offering to speak at conferences or even by providing content to share with your industry. Become known as a leader how can help unlock opportunities, while inspiring others in your space using your valuable knowledge and experiences. 

Soft skills are just as important

Executive level positions require collaboration, working with stakeholders from a variety of different departments. Whilst leading from the top, it's important to have effective communication and personability as you bring people along a journey with you whether it’s strategy, transformation, or goal achievement. 

Be respectful, motivating and inclusive, and you’ll naturally find others listen to what you have to say, helping you to have more impact.
