What is a personal statement?
Personal statements are becoming increasingly popular in the public sector where usually the employer will require a completed application form and supporting statement rather than the traditional CV and cover letter. They allow the candidate to demonstrate why they are a good ‘fit’ for the role. We have also recently seen a huge increase in graduate employers taking this route of application, but this time using a personal statement to accompany a CV.
Who needs a personal statement?
Personal statements are widely used in the public sector and to apply for university undergraduate and master’s degrees.
We are experienced in preparing personal statements for a variety of industries:
- Healthcare – including nursing and midwifery
- Teachers – including head teachers, teaching assistants and lecturer
- Public sector roles such as local council and government positions
- Social work and housing officers
- PAs and administration
- Research and fundraising roles
Need a UCAS personal statement?
If you are applying to university through UCAS, or for a master’s degree or PhD, your personal statement will be used by the admissions team to determine your suitability for higher education and the subject itself. You will need to demonstrate through your past experience a determination to succeed and a keen interest in the subject to be studied.
At a young age, some of us struggle to see what would be of relevance to university admissions teams. Our expert personal statement writer will work with you to identify the activities that you have taken part in and the personal qualities that you already possess that will be of relevance to the selection panel.
How to write a personal statement
Completing a personal statement successfully takes time and dedication – in fact some people believe that they are used as a method to reduce the number of applications for certain roles. So it is certainly worth investing some effort in your personal statement writing to demonstrate your determination to get the job.
CVpal offers a personal statement writing service where we liaise with you to identify your skills and experience which best match the person specification for the role. Contact us for more information.
Matching 80% of the essential skills
Ensure that you have an employment history, education and key skills that at least match 80% of the essential skills. If you do not meet these skills then it is easy to conclude that you are likely to not succeed in the application and that you will probably waste both your time and the employer’s time applying.
Read the job specification very carefully
Read the job specification very carefully and then make notes that evidence the skills they are requesting. Make sure that you clearly identify how the particular skill or competency assisted you in your role and ensure that you demonstrate the end results.
Keep it short
Do not write too much. Usually we would recommend that if a job specification has around 12 key points then your statement needs to be in the region of 800 words (one and a half pages of A4).
Identify your motivation and interest
Ensure that the statement has a strong introduction identifying your motivation and interest in the role and has a strong conclusion to really make an impact.
A personal statement is not a cover letter
A personal statement is not a cover letter and visa-versa. A personal statement is much more detailed. We have many clients who contact us to write a cover letter that is actually a personal statement once we see the application form or job specification. Ensure you fully understand what is required.
Check your grammar and spelling
Check your grammar and spelling, there really is very little excuse these days to have any errors in a document. Just press spell check and note any “green lines” under content.
How much will it cost?

I can not rate Andrew and his team highly enough! At a junction in my career, knew I needed some support and guidance from the right people, who could help with my CV and signpost me to the right places to start exploring new opportunities. Andrew and his team exceeded my expectations from the first call. Andrew drew out key information at the introductory meeting, opened up my thinking to other avenues and produced a top quality CV which not only illustrated my career achievements, Skills and CPD, but perfectly reflected my style and personality. This could only have been achieved by the level of detail and professionalism Andrew applied from the beginning to the end. After receipt of the CV Andrew offers ongoing support. Excellent service.Gayner Coulson, Shenley Church End
I have been in the same company for over ten years - promoted from within to director. Leaving via redundancy was a shock to the system. Not only did the guys at CV pal help me recognise that my details could be massively enhanced but they also spent time listening to what I needed and ensured that I remained positive. A new job once you are over 40 is scary - they helped me make the transition. Thanks guys, they really are a proper family business caring about individuals and making you shine.Tracy Phelps, Northampton
A huge thank you to Andrew for all the time and effort he put into doing a CV, personal statement and covering letter for me at short notice to enable me to get my application in on time. I wasn't sure what to expect but I was more than pleased with the results. Exceptional service from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble and Andrew was always willing to invest the time into getting it all just right. The service is excellent value for money, I would recommend anyone getting back into the job market to use CVpal in order to give you the best chance possible. It took away all of the stress of applying for jobs having the main documents already done! Can't thank you enough CVPal.Job hunter, Milton Keynes
Andrew has been fantastic. He helped me secure my interview and now I have got the job of my dreams! Many thanks Andrew for helping me change my life!Karine, Newport Pagnell
I am currently military and leaving the Army in the near future, I thought it would be a good idea to have my CV professionally written. Reason being it can be difficult for military personnel to express and relate their experiences and skills to the world outside of the Army. Instantly Andrew was very helpful and had previous experience of writing military to civilian CVs. He put together a very professional and polished CV for me within a week. I have since had a good amount of interest and positive feedback on the CV and I would definitely recommend CV pal and Andrew to any of my friends military or civilian.Fiona Chalmers, Thirsk
