You might have had one or two jobs, but are worried you don’t have enough experience. Well, this is where you’re find a TV runner CV template to help you.

How do you write a TV Runner CV?

CVs have a format that’s pretty much universal, regardless of the industry you’re applying for, as it covers the key information an employer will want to know.

This information is used to make an informed decision on whether to look further at your application, or put you in the ‘no’ pile. Also known as the recycling bin.

Header – your name and contact information

Personal Statement – a description of your skills and intended career path

Credits – this is your work experience within the industry, be it internships, student films or paid production work

Education and Training – what you’ve learned and where you’ve learned it
