Word Count after first submission

Morning all,I am looking for some advice after reading and hearing some conflicting information.I have been referred on four AC for one of my untis and I am concerned about word count.

CV support please

Good evening all, I wondered if there was anyone on the forum who currently works in employment relations that would be wiling to look at my CV and give me some pointers please? I work for a trade union and have done so for a decade, representing members.
