    I'll just talk about the layout first as it's needed to draw the eye to the CV in the first place, with content coming after.

    The template is good, we must of read the same website as mine looks pretty similar. Good choice of font and size.
    Change the text alignment from left-align to justified, then fiddle with the spacing a bit to make sure words aren't unnecessarily hyphoned off the line.

    Now you really need to put some meat into your CV. Under Employment you need to list the skills you've gained and used while working there, try to avoid corporate buzzwords and generic sentences such as "Aided a customer base of xxx in appropriately using [certain software]" - In that case try something like "Compiled jargon-free userguide for varying levels of experience for [certain software]"

    Listing all the skills you have and those you gained while employment is quite tricky but once you get going it becomes easier.

    It seems to me you need to pick a direction to go in for your career, to an employer you may be flagged as a job hopper because you're quite open ended with "IT based role" in your resume.

    Oh and also if you decide to add interests or hobbies (Although if you've got room to leave it out then do so) Avoid using Socialising as one of them like the plague, to an employer that means you like to go out and get smashed at the weekend. They want you to come in on monday.
