Due to some unlucky happen-stance, losing boxes during a house move & hard disk crashes, I find myself without a copy of my current CV. I'm 50 and have moved jobs a number of times (including some temping & contact work), been made redundant a couple of times and had short periods of unemployment. I've got a general framework of where I've worked with rough dates, but I need to tie it all down better than that, especially the periods where I wasn't working.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how I could try and get more information? I've asked any ex-colleagues that I'm still in contact with, but obviously they don't have precise details of my employment, just their own.
Edit: Thanks all for the comments & suggestions, trying to get details through my NI contributions was probably the most useful. I was sorting through my loft at the weekend and I stumbled upon an old CD box that I'd forgotten I'd got which, along with installers for v.old OSs and various other stuff, contained a disk with a backup file of a computer from 2002. After much faffing trying to extract the data out of this file, it did indeed contain various versions of my CV from that period so I'm back up & running.
(Apparently I don't have enough reputation to actually close my topic)
