You can either give details of your previous employers here (their name, job title and phone number) or just write 'References available on request'.If you put someone's details here make sure you've checked with them that they're happy with this as your potential employer could call them without telling you.Remember that sophisticated or highly aesthetic CV’s may impress, but should not detract from the data you would like to get across.

To help you see what kind of information to include on your CV here is our guide.
A governance CV is a different proposition from an executive CV.
Governance skills, experience, training and relevant memberships should be prominent to demonstrate you are a governance professional. Use a plain clear font – do not reduce text size to make your CV appear shorter.
