Summary

Naturally creative and innovative, with a budding desire to carve a growing and developing career within the Youth work and Community development sector. I have secured full and part time employment since the age of 16, while actively continuing my studies and extra accredited courses. I posses superb interpersonal social and leadership skills and am confident engaging with young people on a professional level. I hold a firm grasp of time management and organisational planning together with a natural ambition and creative flare. I revel in the chance to take hold of developing work/projects and give them a personal and imaginative touch. I am fully competent to work as part of a growing, developing team and /or as an independent and reliable individual. I relish a challenge and endeavour to improve and develop new skills were possible.
