How do I upload my CV / Resume?

When you apply for a position or add a CV / Resume to your careers account, you will have three options:

We recommend you use the first option – to upload a pre-existing file – as it will minimize the amount of information you need to enter manually. However, please review your uploaded data for accuracy and ensure that it has been entered into the appropriate fields.
