Our City CV for Nottingham celebrates everything the city has to offer for businesses and jobseekers alike. With the UK’s workforce becoming increasingly mobile, Nottingham is one city in the UK which is proving itself to be a strong contender for those looking for a career, or even looking to relocate. It boasts a large pool of schools with strong OFSTED ratings, as well as the renowned University of Nottingham which is 6th in the World Rankings for Pharmacy. It’s also famed for its architecture, Sherwood Forest and the legend of Robin Hood, alongside famous faces including Olympic star Rebecca Adlington and cricketer Stuart Broad.
To celebrate Nottingham and highlight the thriving job opportunities in the city, Totaljobs has reversed the traditional CV to create a Nottingham City CV – a city profile bringing to life Nottingham’s best attributes and most attractive factors. Formatted and written much like a candidate CV, the ‘City CV’ makes the case for ‘hiring’ Nottingham, encouraging candidates to consider the city when looking for their next job opportunity. In keeping with turning the idea of a CV on its head, the City CV is also designed to support employers selling their employer brand when looking to attract new talent to Nottingham.
One business that calls Nottingham home is Boots, which has its history firmly rooted in the city.
Sarah Dryburgh, Assistant Campaign Manager at Boots commented:
“Nottingham has been home to the Boots brand since its humble beginnings when John Boot opened a small herbalist store on Goose Gate in 1849. Throughout the years, the business has been through a lot and pioneered so much change, yet always stayed true to its heritage and values and remained in Nottingham. On the Beeston site, Ibuprofen was invented and leading brands such as No7, Boots Soltan, Botanics and Boots Pharmaceuticals have been, and still are, developed, formulated and manufactured.
As well as having excellent transport links, Nottingham has a wealth of cultural & historical landmarks and is a hotspot for shopping, bars & restaurants – and with all this to hand it’s easy to see why people love living and working in Nottingham. Plus, it’s all within easy reach of our Support Office!”
The City CV describes Nottingham as “a pioneer with purpose,” boasting an iconic history with several impressive landscapes, including the famed Sherwood Forest nearby. It also highlights sporting icons such as Olympic ice-skating champions Torvill and Dean, and Olympic swimming champion, Rebecca Adlington, who were all born there.
