Andrew Barnes



An intelligent, adaptive and ambitious student currently studying at Plymouth University who has a
very strong track record for problem solving. I have extensive experience in a wide variety of
technologies and leading development teams to analyse, design and develop very high quality
systems. Alongside this I also have much experience in training and mentoring fellow employees to
ensure they have the skills required to work effectively.

I am now looking for a graduate opportunity in system analysis and system design in order to both
make the best use of my current knowledge on the range of technologies presented below as well as
to maintain my professional development.
