Hello, I'm a student from Maidenhead, Buckinghamshire currently residing in Southampton, Hampshire.
I am currently in my second year studying Chemistry at the University of Southampton. I spent 3 months (June 2015 - September 2015) working within the marketing department of a small international firm; where I was involved in the running of email marketing campaigns (the collection of a prospect's data through the process of turning them into leads), managing the social media for the company and some web design internally and for a client and 2.5 months (June 2015 - September 2015) working as a summer placement student in the teaching laboratories at the University of Southampton.
I look forward to hearing from you.
The role of a student ambassadors is to work with the Recruitment and Outreach Team to lead and support the delivery of a variety of on and off-campus activities, residential events and mentoring schemes with young people aged 10-18 years of age.
This role primarily involves phoning alumni and friends of the university, building a rapport with them and then convincing them to donate to the University and the University’s campaign for the Centre for Cancer Immunology. Over the year the team raised approximately £133’000 (£380'000 with gift aid and regular gifts for 5 years). And I was proud to be the highest fundraiser with my own total of £8634.25. Success in this role requires the ability to build strong personal relationships with the constituent over the phone quickly, the ability to think quickly on your feet as to the direction of the call and also superb communication skills in conveying the message of the campaign.
As a member of the bar staff, it is important that I work closely with my colleagues to ensure that every customer is served as promptly and efficiently as possible. Excellent customer service skills are essential in making every customer feel valued. This is displayed in a friendly and approachable disposition, in making an effort to remember their drinks order and how they prefer it to be served and most importantly in greeting every customer with a smile. Attention to detail is important in making certain that every drink is created to a consistently high standard. Many of the patrons of the pub are regulars so it is essential that good relationships are developed from the get-go.
Staff can work a number of different roles at a number of different events.
Currently tutoring mathematics to a Year 9 girl.
As a Faculty Student Ambassador, I primarily worked at University-wide open days, assisting with tours and answering the questions of prospective students.

My work at Revolution Bars was primarily providing bar support to those on the bar. Bottles in the speed rail had to be replaced quickly, when empty; the fridges had to be kept stocked up and the supply of glasses behind the bar had to be managed. This last role, in particular, required excellent customer service skills; navigating around customers to collect their glasses and dealing with often loud and brash clients politely and effectively.
As a summer placement student in the Level 4 Teaching Laboratory, my key role involved managing the production of teaching guides on how students should write lab reports and lab books. This required me to coordinate the production of the audio and visual elements and combine them to produce the finished products to a deadline.

Also involved in composing and sending email marketing messages in HTML and plain text. Experience with creating websites for a range of purposes using online clients and small HTML adjustments. Management of company social media accounts and creation of blog posts for company blogs.
As a temporary seasonal Sales Assistant I worked with a small team of colleagues, as part of a much larger organisation, to promote customer service and to improve the customer experience. I was employed to ensure that the shop was presented well and to company standards; with customers to help them find the correct item/garment to suit their purpose and also to increase revenue and reduce unecessary loss for the company. My warehouse responsibility included ensuring that stock was unpacked, labelled and priced and out on the shop floor as quickly as possible.
Emphasise.me was originally a branch of Young Enterprise that specialised in bespoke quality websites. I managed the cash flow of the company, advised the CEO and Board of Directors on monetary decisions, paid in and wrote cheques, kept accurate, up-to-date accounts.
As a young leader, I helped the Brownies (September 2011-July 2013) and Guides (September 2012-Present) to get involved in a wide range of activities, as well as acting as a confidant in a way that an adult leader cannot. I help to organise and run the weekly meetings as well as attending several weekend events and helping to run fundraising stalls.
I have judged this competition in a voluntary capacity three times at the regional level and twice at a national level to date; leading my small judging group at the nationals. I hope to be involved with judging at an international level this year. The competition requires participants to build and program a robot to complete a series of tasks in a set time for points; prepare a presentation on the assigned topic for the year and utilise the core values throughout. Prior to judging I was a participant for 3 years and mentor for 2 years.

As Treasurer (September 2012-July 2013) I kept clear financial records of income and expenditure as well as being an active member in organising and running fundraising events. As President (July 2013-April 2015) I arranged and lead the meetings and planned the majority of charity fundraising at school. I attended meetings with and gave presentations to a variety of people, including the local Rotary Club, and as such have experience talking to a wide range of people. In total, in my time, as a leader of the team, we raised approximately £21'000.
