Problem Solving

As a Class Representative and Student Ambassador I liaised with staff and students to communicate any issues or concerns students have with the courses and work out the best strategies to resolve these issues. I also attend student/staff meetings to be able to address any major issues and keep the students up to date with the latest developments in the School of Life Sciences.


From my experience of working with both impatient/unhappy customers and stressed chefs, I developed strong skills in negotiation and finding rapid solutions to problems while under pressure. Good communication skills were also needed when liaising with the university staff members when at meetings, and when completing group projects to achieve the best outcomes possible.

Planning & Organisation

As a Graduation Ball Committee member I was involved in the venue choice and catering options. This meant having to work out budgets and handling large sums of money, which meant being highly organised. I was also part of the fund-raising team which raised over £5000 within the year. This meant having to be flexible in volunteering hours, organize volunteering shifts and taking initiative in engaging with the general public. I was also involved in organizing several ‘dreams’ for the Dreamz4U charity such as meeting the Scotland Rugby Team.

Teamwork & Leadership

From my volunteer work within and without the university and working in a restaurant and bar, I have developed strong team skills including setting objectives and monitoring progress. Being a Gaelic football team member I developed my team-working skills involving helping and motivating team members. Because of our strong team relationship we rose from second division to first division in the British University Gaelic Football Championship. In addition, I lead several group projects over the four years achieving very successful outcomes
