Over my career I have realised an appreciation for project management, particularly for short-term and quick-fix projects.
I am able to be flexible around work times and able to concentrate my time at short notices. I have a polite telephone manner and enjoy interacting with other people.
Area Covered: South West
Work Experience Summary: I began working in Telesales, but found I wanted a more meaningful career. I took a job with a Local Authority in Housing, and worked with homelessness, maintenance, benefits and rehousing and undertook a HNC in housing. I moved onto mental health and homelessness, working for two separate organisations simultaneously whilst also studying in homelessness.
I went on to work for an ethnic minority housing organisation as a Development Worker and took a jointly managed project for this and two other housing organisations - managing a the development of a mixed housing estate. I left this role to become a Support Worker for another Local Authority, eventually becoming promoted to develop their policies and procedures.
I left to manage a support project returning to mental health and homelessness. After setting the project up, I handed this over to another worker and developed a similar project for a youth organisation. With this project up and running I moved my career to focus on teaching and have been running a cooking and nutrition teaching project for a health organisation. I am currently running small cookery teaching project which I am able to accept work or decline as I so wish.
Education Summary: I have 9 GCSE's at level A-C, CLAIT, HNC Housing Studies, Homelessness OCN, Teacher training, Food Hygiene as well as a lengthy list of training courses ranging from first aid and mental health to self injury and customer services.
