I have been in constant employment since 2005. My first jobs were in the hospitality industry and helped to financially support my college and universty studies. Whilst this is not the industry that I intended to be working in after I finished my studies, I feel that the experience I gained in my early employment was invaluable and kept me on my toes in terms of developing real-world skills.
My team and communication skills, have developed greatly from my time working in the positions I have held, and I have demonstrated my commitment to achieving my goals at University by personally financing my studies through this work.
Setting and striving towards my own personal standards and pushing myself into new arenas has made me successful in each of the jobs I have had and despite the inevitable pressures involved, I have always maintained focus and enthusiasm.
My time and project management skills have also had to be at a constant high standard. Overseeing a number of different tasks from start to finish and ensuring that everything is done not only on time but also to the required standard is crucial and my ability to do this well, is something which I pride myself upon.
My initiative and capacity for problem solving is often put to the test both at work and at University and I have never failed to impress. My confidence and adaptability allows me to take on any challenge no matter how unfamiliar or difficult it is and I always achieve excellent results.
