Jobseeker CV Guidelines

Unnecessary PII is defined in this context as, but not limited to, information such as full date of birth, financial information such as bank account numbers, and government-issued identification numbers such as national insurance or driving licence numbers. Indeed may remove content in order to help protect a jobseeker’s PII and professional reputation.
