Personal Summary

I strive to push myself in a wide variety of activities which have allowed me to acquire

many varied skills. I have gained a vast amount of experience working as a recruitment

coordinator for a company that hired a large amount of seasonal staff. This required me to

create new ways of promoting job vacancies (for example brand ambassadors and social

media advertising) and of keeping their talent pool engaged and interested in various up

and coming opportunities. I also aided in creating and maintaining their Applicant Tracking

System (ATS).

I understand the need to fulfil deadlines and also the need to keep adapting and

developing materials so that the client receives the best end result. In my role as

Activities Manager I gained a large amount of experience in how to manage clients and

stakeholders’ expectations and deliver their desired outcomes. Within this role I also

worked within a budget, booking attractions and selling clients extras to further enjoy

their time with us.

I have also been a residential musician in venues throughout the north, allowing me to

gain experience in performing and hosting events. This would require me to promote my

events on social media and through other forms of marketing, such as flying and busking. I

would describe myself as energetic, passionate and driven, and would love the opportunity

to show this within your organisation.
