VACATION EMPLOYMENT AND EXPERIENCE
I have had various holiday and vacation jobs whilst completing my education both
manual, such as the likes of fruit picking, and office based including: -
2008 – Five months working for the Civil Service Insolvency Centre in Birmingham as
a Redundancy Case Officer responsible for an assigned case load of corporate
insolvency clients. The work included being the main point of contact for creditors
including former employees of the business. The nature of the work involved dealing
with people often in a very distressed, emotional or aggravated state of mind.
2007 – Five months working as a Client Liaison Officer for a Birmingham based
Financial Services firm – David Abbey and Associates.
2006/2007 – Five months working at the Lloyds TSB Securities Centre in
2005 – Six months in the Customer Services Department at the Head Office of Fat
Face Limited, the leisure clothing retail business based in Havant, Hampshire.
Through these (and various other) roles I have gained extensive experience in data
input, handling of confidential information, organising and maintaining diaries,
working both as part of a team and on my own initiative, managing a case load,
logging orders and dealing with enquiries, liaising with both individuals and corporate
customers, acquisition of telephone and letter writing skills.
All of the above together with my education and life experiences learned whilst
travelling have given me the self-resilience, confidence and inter-personal skills
required for dealing with both business colleagues and customers alike.
In addition I have acquired practical computing, music production and recording
experiences touring with bands including the staging and setting up of gigs in the role
of sound and amplification technician and running a portable live recording set up in
several live music venues.
My own personal composition, performances, design and production of podcast
recording and promotional materials have helped to further my passion for the music
Music plays a large part in my life including composing, arranging, performing (piano,
guitar, clarinet and vocals) recording and production and I am a regular attender of
pop festivals including Glastonbury for the last ten years.
In addition I enjoy various sporting activities including, beach fishing, golf, football
and am an avid follower of the Formula 1 Grand Prix season.
At University I was a member of various social and other activity groups including the
freestyle Frisbee team representing the University at events across the UK.
I also enjoy travelling and experiencing other cultures and have just returned from six
months backpacking in the Far East including India, Thailand and New Zealand
which of necessity involved considerable planning and budgetary skills.
