Tips on submitting a CV:

    Format

  • At the top of the page, put your name, email, phone contact and IMDb (if relevant). As these items are easily recognisable, there is no need to label them.
  • Next, list any credits you might have. Break them into categories (film, TV, commercials, shorts) and include the title of the production, your role, the director, and production company/broadcaster.
  • Include any relevant work experience, meaning any experience you feel is relevant to the job you are applying for.
  • For education, you do not need to go into too much detail. Assume whoever is reading your CV will know what is involved in obtaining a degree. There is no need to go into specific results or modules. We also know what is involved in the ‘Passport to Production’ course.
  • Include skills. This can be a list of skills that you think are relevant to the position e.g. driver license, first aid, proficient in Microsoft Office Suite, Avid Media Composer, Final Draft etc.

    General

  • Make your CV specific to Script Supervising. If you are putting in a description of your work, education or experience, apply it to the job e.g.
    Diploma in Acting – RADA (2013) - Having completed a two year course in acting, I feel confident in prompting and performing off lines for cast.
  • Keep it to a single page, and make it clear and concise. Think about who you are sending your CV to; we work a minimum of 50 hours a week and so we will not have time to read a five page CV of waffle. Be assured that you do not need to pad it out as you are applying for a trainee position.
  • Be honest about what you have done and what you are able to do. As a trainee, you are not expected to know everything.
  • Presentation is key. Make your CV look nice. Do not be afraid of colour or creativity (within the boundaries of function). When you are finished, take an objective look at your CV and ask yourself, ‘Would I remember this CV?’
  • Please always submit your CV in .pdf format.

Good luck!
