Work History

This experience has taught me the importance of face-to-face customer service and good communicational skills. Working in the stock room and delivery has helped me to work efficiently in order to get tasks completed before deadlines. The shop floor has taught me to work well as a team and use my initiative effectively in challenging situations especially during public holidays.

During my school placement at a podiatry clinic I had to help to treat patients, answer calls on behalf of the podiatrist, carry out stock checks and sanitise medical equipment.The clinic was located in a diverse urban area so communication skills were vital this showed me the importance of communication. From this experience I learnt to communicate with different patients many of which spoke very little English. I also learnt some vital IT skills as the patients required prescriptions and had to be registered in and out of the clinic.
