When you’re writing your CV, you should focus on highlighting relevant skills and accomplishments that are in line with the position for which you are applying.

Always provide a home address, phone number and e-mail address so employers can get in touch with you easily.

It’s never a good idea to lie about your salary, especially when your P45 will tell your new employer what your earnings have been in the year to date.
If you want to negotiate your salary, wait until you have bee offered the job and then think about a reason why the new job should pay more. For example you may need a larger salary due to increased travel expences.
Always write your CV in first person. Never write about yourself in the third person
You should write:
I am a highly motivated individual.
You should NOT write:
Lisa is a highly motivated individual.
We know it is your CV because your name is at the very top, so you don’t need to keep reminding us. It also gives the impression that someone has written it for you, which can suggest that you don’t have much confidence in selling yourself.
Putting your picture on you CV may seem like a good idea at the time but it can severly damage your chances of getting a job. Those reviewing you CV might judge you on your photo instead of your actual CV.
