Me

I'm lost without my notepad, it's with me everywhere I go. Sometimes I transfer it to my blog. occasionally I enter short story competitions and I've had an article published, it's here if you want to give it a read. I love music, sharing music with friends and finding new genres I didn't even know existed. I'm looking for someone to give me an opportunity to make this part of my CV longer, will that be you?

Work Experience

Work History
Jul 2015 - Oct 2015

IT Project Coordinator (contract)

Balfour Beatty  (one of the world's largest infrastructure businesses)

People say that IT is the most boring profession on Earth and from my experience I cannot argue with them.

2013 - 2014

Resort Assistant/ Driver

Hotelplan

I hadn't skied before my first season, I was delivering food and people 6 days a week, but more importantly I could ski most of the winter and that made the long hours and poor pay well worth it.

Jun 2014 - Oct 2015

Customer Service Advisor

ASOS 

I was encouraged to write as creatively as I liked, rather than having to pretend to be a robot working from a script. I honed my ability to write succinctly, fast and with purpose.

Sunseed Desert Technology

This is a sustainable living community in southern Spain and it changed my outlook on life, in truth, I haven't been the same since I got back. I volunteered in all areas from anti desertification to communications (where I spent most of my time). More information about the community and the coordinator I shadowed is right here.
