Colin's CV contains plenty of information, yet comfortably fits into two sides. It is easy to read which is helped by using bold lettering.

This CV is ideal now that Colin has decided to stay in accountancy and, therefore, it is acceptable to include jargon / terminology specific to that field.

Colin's interests also show there is more to him than just work and indicates that he likes to keep fit and be involved in the community.

Perhaps a minor point is the use of the title Curriculum Vitae in bold type at the top of the page. It takes up valuable space and it is fairy obvious to the reader what the document is.

Overall, this CV does a good job selling Colin's skills and experience - although it does not emphasise his personal qualitie and attributes.
