If you've got a degree they're pretty much irrelevant, and having too much space on your CV taken up by out of date and trivial information doesn't send a good message about who you are. You have 2 pages to sell yourself, and it what's on the first 1/3rd of the first page doesn't grab the reader's attention, it's going in the bin. It can be worth paying a pro to write your CV - they know how recruiters work. I used Bill from CV Masterclass, and although it wasn't cheap I feel it was worth the money. You only have to go up an increment in salary to make it pay for itself.
