My objective is to secure a progressive position with a forward thinking employer. I believe I would prove to be a valuable asset to any potential employer having gathered a valuable wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise covering a variety of important aspects of modern life. I take great pride in any task I undertake and pay meticulous attention to detail, whilst remaining highly professional. I am also extremely honest, reliable and trustworthy.
Even though I went to college and gained qualifications through learning, I also started from the ground up within hotels, I have held almost every job from kitchen porter to assistant general manager.
I have personally ran over 400 weddings from early start to very late finish . I am able to help out wherever needed from bar to restaurant and C & E . I am also a problem solver dealing with whatever can be unsatisfactory for guests and turning a negative into a positive.
Before I started in catering I completed a Btec Diploma in Information Technology, This gave me a basic grasp of computers Over the years however I have gained much more experience being the “ go to “ person for all my friends and family for any and all computer issues, from virus`s to email issues, I am able to quickly solve 99% of problems, this also runs into all electronic “ Gadgets”
I have been a volunteer first aider for St John Ambulance for over the past 15 years. I have dealt with many casualties over this time, from a simple blister to a broken pelvis. I have also upskilled within St John Ambulance to an advanced first aider, I am now able to administer medical gasses in conjunction with pulse oximeter I am able to take blood pressures and incubate using NPA`s and OPA`s
