Hobbies and Interests

I edited your post to remove your name and email address, as you do not want that information out in public.
Here are some suggestions:
1. Add an Objective to your CV. Not only does it signal to an employer that you're serious and focused about your job search, it will also help us proof your CV. It's hard to offer advice if we don't know what your goal is.
2. Substitute the Objective for your Personal Statement and include the content of your current Personal Statement in the Objective. Your Objective will concisely summarize who you are, what you've done, and what you're seeking.
3. Write your Objective using the 1st person voice, not the 3rd person.
4. In your Argos experience, omit "Although I was only there for a short time I never really gained any other experiences." This passage does you no favors.
5. In your First Personal experience, use the 1st person voice only (right now you combine both the 3rd and 1st person). Omit "I was there for about 4 months." That is evident from the dates you list.
6. In your Unipart experience, omit "The main focus of Unipart is to make sure all their customers have their mobiles/pagers back to them in a repaired status, also to make sure they have their mobiles/pagers delivered to them at times convenient to them." The point is to explain your work, not Unipart's.
7. Under KEY SKILLS, rephrase your IT knowledge in the positive ("In-depth, self-taught IT knowledge"), not the negative ("No formal qualifications"). Make sure you are uniform in your use of periods.
8. Under "Hobbies and Interests", use correct grammar. Right now it looks like computing is always looking for a new challenge. That's not right - you are. Omit mention of your daughter. That kind of personal detail is unnecessary for a job application.
I would definitely remove the third person stuff... Everything should be first person, past tense.
I would recommend customizing your resume for each position you apply to. For example, under your skills, you have a bit of a "laundry list" of unrelated abilities. The only skills, experience and education your employer cares about is what's relevant to their opening. You can shorten your resume and have more likely to be read and more relevant to the reader.
