I am looking for work on a casual or full time basis and would like to hear from you if you can offer me anything.  I consider myself to be hard working, conscientious, and always take pride in my work.  I’m flexible, quick to pick up new skills and eager to learn from others.  I am Dyslexic and this affects my handwriting however, this has not stopped me from progressing.  I have gained varied skills and certification over the last few years.




I am an active person who enjoys manual and physical activities, new challenges and problem solving.  I have owned a motorbike for many years of which I maintain myself and ride at various practice tracks.   I have a vast and confident knowledge of vehicle mechanics and have owned a car since I was 17.  I am enjoying learning the building trades and gaining new experiences in the construction industry.   I also have gardening experience.
