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

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.

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.

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.

Volunteering

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.
