Background

Summary

21 year old third year Journalism student at Falmouth University. Ultimate ambition is to work in magazines as a feature journalist. I'm passionate about writing and getting my work noticed, I write voluntarily for a number of online platforms, including Trendlife Magazine and Yuppee Magazine, as well as maintaining my own blog.

I'm currently working on a project to design, write content for, provide pictures for and publish a vintage magazine.

Experience

Sales Assistant

Tremough Shop
– Present (3 years 3 months)Falmouth, Cornwall

I work as a sales assistant in Tremough Shop, which is the University Campus shop. I stack shelves with fresh produce, alcohol, stationary and toiletries, train new members of staff and manage paper work.

Editorial Intern

Northern Life Magazine
(1 month)Colne, Lancashire

Northern Life Magazine is a magazine which is printed 6 times a year and caters for 100,000 readers. I worked with the editor and editor’s assistant, taking photos, getting vox pop pieces and writing copy from press releases and readers submissions. I worked here for two weeks and gained some invaluable experience of how a magazine works.

Sports Intern

The Burnley Express
(1 month)Burnley, Lancashire

I worked on the sports desk as a reporter. My role included interviewing an under 21 international netball player on her successes as a captain. This story was published in two newspapers. I wrote up press releases, such as local fixtures, results and small success stories. I also attended a press conference at the Burnley Football Club training ground in this two week placement.

Waitress/Barmaid

Burnley Football Club
(4 years 6 months)Burnley, Lancashire

Barmaid
Worked often in a team and under pressure to serve all customers quickly and correctly as customer service is essential.
Waitress
I trained new staff effectively, ensuring each individual knew their roles within the team.
As an experienced member, I often took charge in the absence of a supervisor which involved assigning roles to each team member and giving instruction clearly.
Kiosk Work
Served food and drinks to football fans, involved working as a team and quickly solving problems.
‘Cashing up’ tills were essential and had to be done correctly and in a professional manner.

Fresh Stock Control

Tesco PLC
(4 months)Burnley, Lancashire

Team-based culture, had to work under pressure to meet company, team and waste targets. I gained face-to-face customer experience, dealing with queries and directed customers to their desired product on the shop floor. I had three main duties, one of which was ‘Job14’ which entailed checking the stock in the fridges by their sell-by date. Another duty was to count stock on the shop floor and in the warehouse using a handheld Microsoft computing device and carrying out ‘Gap Scan’ counting on the shelf with the same device.

Volunteer Experience & Causes

Campaign Volunteer

Atlantic Whale Foundation
(2 months)Animal Welfare

I volunteered in whale and dolphin conservation for a month. My role involved researching environmental and conservational issues around the world. I monitored closely the behaviour of whales and dolphins, and learnt how to communicate without speaking another language. I produced learning materials for primary school students, which have been downloaded 100,000+ times worldwide.

Community Volunteer

Falmouth SafeSpace
– Present (2 years 3 months)Social Services

My role as a volunteer with Falmouth SafeSpace includes talking to people who may be in distress, confused or simply too drunk. I get to communicate with many people as there are different volunteers every week. Falmouth SafeSpace runs every Saturday night from 10pm - 3am. The space is designed for administration of minor first aid treatment by St. Johns Ambulance and for police officers to talk to people away from the nightlife, without the expense of bringing a person to the police station or hospital.
