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.
- Recently graduated from the University of St Andrews (Behavioural Biology, 2:1)
- Situated a short distance from the Barbican (10 minute car/bus journey) and very flexible (available for part-time or full work at very short notice)
- Previous experience in retail (Fossil York, Paperchase York), call centre work (Rux Burton alumni University campaign), photography (semi-professional photographer for 4+ years with Lightbox St Andrews), intern at Silverback film productions
- Keen interest in music, co-host of a weekly radio show for 3+ years discussing recent music releases
- Punctual, self-motivated, positive and interested in seeing the behind the scenes work of a venue I have enjoyed so much growing up (seeing acts ranging from Jake Bugg to Kacey Musgraves!)
I am an enthusiastic and loyal individual with valuable experience working within the hospitality, customer services gamming and retail environments. I have excellent communication, influencing and interpersonal skills with a confident and outgoing personality. I have the ability to interact with people at all levels. I am able to lead and train staff members with a positive “can do” attitude. I have the ability to multitask and work in a busy, fast paced and dynamic environment. I can take initiative and deliver a practical approach to problem solving. I am passionate about customer service and the food and drinks industry. I am now in a position where I am ready to further progress my career in hospitality and to take on more responsibility and accountability. I am willing and determined to learn any new skills that can make me a worthy member of the team. I will meet any new challenges given me with energy and commitment. I am ambitious, hardworking and I wish to be given the opportunity to show my full potential
