I'm a recent History of Art graduate from the University of York with plenty of customer service and retail experience. I'm a conscientious worker and a quick learner, able to talk to people of any age and background. As an approachable and friendly face at the door or behind the scenes helping to set up, I'm able to adjust and adapt to any scenario.
With experience across the retail, hospitality and events sectors, I feel confident in delivering exceptional customer service at any shift. I'm a reliable and dependable employee who can work well to a deadline. I'm professional in the workplace with an ability to problem solve under pressure. While I enjoy working in a team, I can work equally well when given an independent task.
I have recently been made redundant from my role as Senior Visitor Experience Officer, working for The National Trust. I gained a wide variety of skills in this role as I was based at a small property where I oversaw many different departments. This has equipped me with experience of sales techniques (both for membership and retail), people management skills (both of staff and volunteers), an awareness of health and safety through my role as duty manager, and a portfolio of creative work featuring house displays, interpretation and children's trails. In these uncertain times, I am looking for opportunities in any of the areas listed above, as well as writing, proofreading and research - of which I have previous experience.
I'm a globetrotter at heart, but also a skilled, professional marketer, with a 1st class honors degree in International Tourism Management.
My degree helped me to realise that marketing was the industry for me. Over my four years at university I studied three marketing modules, creating effective and engaging digital marketing and destination marketing strategies. They all equipped me with fantastic knowledge and an abundance of skill sets. In my final year, I produced a 6000-word Destination Marketing Strategy report on the city of Miami. I worked exceptionally hard on this and I was thrilled when I received the highest grade on the module.
During my placement year, I worked at Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council as a Communications and Marketing Assistant. Throughout my time at BMBC I supported officers and managers with the delivery of marketing campaigns, email marketing, and producing high-quality content for traditional and digital platforms. I also had the chance to run my own campaigns and produce weekly news articles. I also assisted in the planning of events such as the Tour de Yorkshire.
For as long as I can remember I have been hooked on the idea of travel. I love exploring cities, laying on beaches, learning about cultures, and trying new cuisines. I made it my mission to visit 22 countries before I was 22 and did exactly that!
AT the moment I can work part-time Friday, Saturday, Sunday. I can go Full time from from 22nd May 2020 . the start of may half-term. I also need to a 35 hour work placement with college before may if it possible to do it here too.
I am an extremely motivated, personable, and proactive individual, having built up a strong portfolio of varied skills, which allow me to work effectively, efficiently, and collaboratively in a multitude of settings. Having graduated from the University of Edinburgh in July 2019, I am currently seeking employment in a role in which I can advance humanitarian, environmental, and feminist causes, while developing my professional skills. I am excited by a wide range of roles, including charitable advancement, editing and content creation (magazine/literary), and roles in which I can use my languages (French and Spanish). I aim to have a high level of responsibility and am interested in global education on topics such as sustainability.

I have recently come to the end of my internship working for the Liberal Democrats. The communications aspects of the job were what I found most interesting. I want to couple the skills I learned in that role with work in the heritage sector, an area I have a strong interest in from my love of History. I would love the opportunity to work in York's vibrant tourist industry, built on the city's rich and varied past.
Below is a summary of the skills I developed while completing my degree:
Essay work ensured that I can write informative, analytical and engaging text to a high standard. Proof reading this work refined my eye for detail.
I demonstrated in 24- and 48-hour open exams that I can be highly productive and remain calm and focused under intense pressure in limited time constraints.
I was excellent at organising time and managing work load in preparation for seminars, essays and exams. This planning allowed me to work effectively on several projects simultaneously.
Throughout my degree, and particularly while completing my dissertation, I learnt how to research a variety of subjects effectively and quickly.
Working in groups to produce written pieces and presentations furthered my ability to plan, communicate, and operate as part of a strong team.
