3rd Year BA (Hons) Marketing Management Student


I am currently in my 3rd year of Marketing Management at Edinburgh Napier University, I would consider myself a hard working individual who has very good organisational skills this can be seen throughout my studies as I have also worked part time as well as studying my course. By balancing these two aspects of my life, I have developed very good time management skills. I believe I work extremely well on my own however also as part of a team which can be seen during my time at Vodafone. Therefore, I feel this gives me the foundations to ensure the success of any task given.

Work experience

Apr 2015Present

Sales Advisor

Vodafone UK
During my time at Vodafone, I have experienced a variety of different tasks and scenarios that in my opinion have provided me with essential skills that benefit me today. As a store each individual is given monthly targets, this has made me driven, motivated and passionate to come to work, I thoroughly enjoyed this aspect of the job. The store was also given monthly targets which had to be met to ensure success for members of staff. Therefore this meant I have had to learn to strive as an individual however also as a team. I think this work ethic is very important and I plan to apply this to future job roles.

Supermarket Assistant 

Waitrose, Stirling
At Waitrose, my job entailed many aspects of Health and Safety as my job was predominately  based within Operations. It was my job to ensure the store was safe within the Health and Safety legislations. Therefore this responsibility allowed me to develop and work well under pressure.
