"I'm a highly-skilled British firefighter with over ten years' operational and three years' managerial experience, gained within Greater Manchester and Cheshire Fire and Rescue services.
"Having recently joined the fire investigation team, I was previously on a secondment at GMFRS Training Centre as lead instructor where I was responsible for rolling out trauma-related training programmes to over 1,200 operational personnel. I have completed a Skills for Justice assessor's award and also a breathing apparatus instructor's qualification.
"In addition to casualty-care, I also have specialist knowledge of extrication and rope rescue techniques.
"In order to develop my career, I have a strong desire to gain experience on an international level in environments that present more complex and varied fire hazards. I have enjoyed utilising my firefighting skills in humanitarian and culturally-diverse frameworks as a member of charity, Operation Florian. With an overall aim of improving fire safety on a global scale, I've delivered training in Macedonia and Moldova as part of a volunteer team which has a remit to up-skill native fire crews in these regions."
