CVs to Get You Hired VIII: Tips for Java Developers
James Mitchell, Associate Director for Calibre Search, specialises in recruiting Java Developers within the IT market and we enlisted him to put some tips together to help people like you with your CV. Read on to find out how to create a CV that will help you stand out from the crowd and really impress employers.    LinkedIn James Mitchell 0113 234 6047 - Associate Director at Calibre Search IT   1. Match yourself to the job specification  Your personal profile is a chance to show how your previous experience makes you the right person for the job (if you’re not sure on this have a look at the ‘Job Description’ – our developer job adverts can be found here) by matching yourself to the job specification. It's worth investing time on this summary, because it could be your only chance to grab the employer's attention. If your specific objective is relocation, for example, but you don't mention this explicitly in your CV, you could be dismissed when they see your address is out of commuting range. 2. Give context When writing your CV, give the skills some context – a list of Frameworks/Application Servers will lead to recruiters calling you, but the interview requests come from your skills being given some perspective. On a similar note, do the same thing with your projects – give them some background: your role, tech stack used and the outcome. It should read as what you have personally achieved while at that company. 3. Get the structure sorted Keep your CV succinct and relevant – the work you did 35 years ago has little bearing on what you are doing today. Three to four pages will suffice, and always mention your responsibilities; ‘I’, not ‘we’. Your education history should always be at the bottom of your CV, unless you have recently graduated or have some qualifications that are particularly relevant to the role you are applying to. Oh, and never write in third person unless you want to be universally judged. 4. Your skills can pay the bills Remember to mention soft skills. If your role requires a level of stakeholder management or bringing teams together then be sure to mention it, it could be important in your next role. Your hobbies and interests can be significant too – we all have friends (well, most of us) and telling the reader you enjoy socialising with them isn’t really considered a hobby. Take this opportunity to genuinely say what your interests are outside of work. 5. Clean it up It sounds obvious, but you would be surprised how often we see it – your National Insurance number should remain private, you should not have this on your CV. Also, references are only needed at offer stage – if you’re approached by a recruiter who needs them as ‘part of their process’ you should be aware that it isn’t necessary to provide them at this stage. Still stuck? Don't worry, the art of CV writing is a tricky one. Our specialist IT consultants are experts when it comes to writing a great CV, and we're just on the other end of the phone – you can phone us on 01132346047 – alternatively my email address is james.mitchell@calibresearch.co.uk and our developer jobs page can be found here.

Calibre Search Launch Dedicated Training College To Upskill Consultants
We want our consultants, whether they be rookie or director level, to be as good as they can be. As a result we have put into place a formal training programme so that our staff can improve on everything from attracting passive candidates to aftercare and everything in between. For our staff to have the careers they deserve, and our candidates and clients to receive the best possible service, we feel this is a wholly necessary investment for the business. If you are a recruitment consultant looking to take your career to the next level at either our Manchester or Leeds offices then please contact matthew.finlay@calibresearch.co.uk and we can start a discussion or have a look here for more details. The article below was picked up by the Manchester Evening News and some other business publications.        Calibre Search Addresses Skills Gap In The North Recruitment company Calibre Search will launch a training college - an initiative geared towards easing the skills gap in the north of England. ‘Calibre College’, which will include tailored one-to-one and team seminars, has been created to upskill the firm’s consultants. Directors Richard Robinson and Pete Gillick described the programme as “essential”, with HS2 and a skills gap throughout the North fuelling the need for Calibre Search’s clients to attract the best talent. It also comes just three months after the Manchester arm of the business - which is on course to turn over £3m this year - moved its eight consultants into The Landmark Building. Richard said: “Calibre College is a programme that we are pleased to be launching as it will have a genuine impact on how we work internally with our consultants and externally with our clients." “Our teams specialise in recruiting to the built environment (consultancy and construction), HVAC, IT and marketing sectors. Companies in these sectors are all battling with the same issue – the need to attract and then retain the best talent capable of working on huge schemes like HS2 as well as big property development schemes and many more." “Calibre College is very much a response to skills shortages which are currently preventing Calibre Search’s clients from achieving growth targets. “With Manchester and Leeds boasting some of the leading universities that produce many talented graduates every year, there needs to be a collective push to try and prevent those graduates from leaving the region when study comes to an end.” Pete Gillick, who started the Manchester office up four years ago, added “Manchester is a growing office which boasts consultants who are keen to develop their skill set." “The Calibre College programme will consist of a monthly series of seminars aimed at better equipping consultants working in an increasingly competitive market. Group wide turnover for the Manchester and Leeds offices is expected to hit £6.5m next year, with knowledge of regions very much the driving force behind this. Investing in our staff will reinforce our desire to provide the best service possible for our clients.” The original article can be found here http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/business/business-news/calibre-search-addresses-skills-gap-12772887

Sarah Zaremba Joins Calibre Search
Sarah Zaremba joining Calibre Search's Marketing division is obviously big news for us and we're delighted that the local and business press think so too.       PEOPLE ON THE MOVE: SARAH ZAREMBA JOINS CALIBRE SEARCH Recruitment consultancy Calibre Search has announced the appointment of experienced client services specialist Sarah Zaremba as Principal Client Services Consultant to support businesses in the North’s thriving creative and digital industries sector. Calibre Search co-founder and director Matthew Finlay said: “Sarah is an outstanding consultant; she puts relationships with people at the heart of her approach, as do we all at Calibre. She has an excellent reputation throughout the North and her track record reinforces the importance of personal contact in the age of supposed automation of recruitment practices. “Her appointment makes us even stronger in the creative and digital industries market and we look forward to her contribution to the development of our business.” Sarah has 14 years’ experience of the recruitment sector and is very well known on the Yorkshire and North West agency circuit. She believes that with an increasing number of clients hiring northern agencies the growth potential for the creative industry in the North is huge. Sarah said: “Leeds and Manchester are important digital centres, with an increasing number of London agencies sourcing talent and in some cases setting up regional offices here. My move to Calibre comes at a time when the industry is evolving and agencies’ requirements are increasing so I see it as a tremendous opportunity to grow our share of the market, not just in the North but nationwide. “Over the last few years Calibre has enjoyed exceptional achievements and growth and I’m looking forward to playing a part in the continued success of the team.”   If you would like to contact Sarah about anything her email address is Sarah.Zaremba@calibresearch.co.uk and her mobile is 07422072456.

CVs to Get You Hired Part VII: Tips for Site Managers
Sam Sykes, Consultant for Calibre Search, specialises in recruiting Site Managers in the construction industry and we enlisted him to put some tips together to help people like you with your CV. Whilst this blog is aimed more towards Housing Site Managers it will still be worth a read for Commercial guys as well. Read on to find out how to create a CV that will you stand you out from the crowd and really impress employers.    LinkedIn Sam Sykes 0113 234 6047 - White Collar Construction Consultant at Calibre Search 1. Don’t forget... personal profile Your personal profile should be a well written 'snapshot' of your career to date. Include in this your current role, the next steps you plan to take and how your previous experience makes you the right person for the job (if you’re not sure on this have a look at the Job Description or Advert – our site manager job adverts can be found here). It's worth investing time on this summary, because it could be your only chance to grab the employer's attention. Whether from agencies or employers, many recruiters won't necessarily use a CV management system that will display your covering letter - it's important, therefore, to say in your profile why you are applying for the role. If your specific objective is relocation, for example, but you don't mention this explicitly in your CV, you could be dismissed when they see your address is out of commuting range. 2. Show your strengths It’s obviously important to highlight your strengths but what you need to do is leave the reader in no doubt that you are good at it. For example, rather than saying you have management experience give specific examples e.g. ‘I managed up to 50 trades with anything up to 15 plots in build phase whilst achieving 95%+ customer satisfaction and zero accidents on site proving a proficiency in health and safety.’ Demonstrating you have strong management experience is much better than just saying it. 3. Project Particulars Include all the specifics of recent projects. The size of the site, from both a production and financial perspective, should be mentioned. For example, if the project consisted of 60 dwellings with a value of circa £5m and a completion programme of 18 months then say so. This information really helps an employer or recruiter to understand the type of environment you are used to, or, if you are adaptable to different build programmes. 4 Qualifications and awards Your qualifications are hugely important. As a bare minimum, all Site Managers must have CSCS, SMSTS and First Aid. An HNC/HND or NVQs in site management can also give you an edge over other candidates. It’s also a good idea to note any awards and industry achievements that you have won or been shortlisted for, in particular NHBC awards such as pride in the job. Use your CV as a tool to both inform and impress. 5 Career highlights and challenging projects It’s always good to shout about your greatest achievements, especially when it comes to challenging projects or delivering on a large scheme. For example, if you have worked on a pioneering contract, such as sustainable living eco-friendly housing, or just delivered a 200-plot site under programme make sure that it’s on there and not hidden away – remember the average reader scans a CV rather than read it fully in the first instance so make sure the juicy stuff is easy to find. Still stuck? Don't worry. The art of CV writing is a tricky one. Our specialist construction consultants are experts when it comes to writing a great CV, and we're just on the other end of the phone – you can phone us on 0113 234 6047. Alternatively email Sam Sykes here and he will get in touch with you.
