    Although there are some differences between what employers are looking for in the US and the UK, I find that there is one overridding principle. Keep your job descriptions brief and to the point. I've seen plenty of resumes / cvs and you wouldn't believe the novels some people write about their job. Most of the time, I've found that the more verbose a job description is, the less they actually tell me what they did.

    Personally, I'm a big fan of the STAR format (I think HR pros call this something else).

    S/T = Situation or Task that you were in / assigned
    A = Action you took
    R = Result
