Recommended: The best CV format to present is the Universal Offshore CV (templates provided above). These CVs include many management and technical career functions and is the best one to use if you are writing your own CV. I also recommend keeping your CV to only 2 pages if you can, however 3 pages is still acceptable due to the amount of information that needs to be presented in your industry, such as a list of your contracts or projects undertaken. I also recommend that you seek professional CV writing advice. A professional CV writer will have the expertise to create Impact and communicate your skills and the highest contribution that you can make to employers.
The downloadable CVs above, are excellent for engineering or technical people carrying out various career functions working on either a contract basis or within a permanent position.
Write a career statement, here's an example:
Rigger / Crane Operator / Banksman: Benefiting from over 15 years experience assisting in all drilling operations on various fixed and floating units, well stimulation work and all types of work over. Experience covers a variety of large capacity cranes within high calibre, close tolerance environments from basic layout to full tolerance and load outs. Up-to-date on all training courses and professional exams.
You can enhance your Offshore CV's readability by using bullet points rather than large paragraphs of text, they are far easier to read and will create impact.
