About me

A recent Fashion and Textiles graduate from Ulster University, looking to further develop my skills and knowledge in a practical and fast-paced environment. I am an enthusiastic, reliable, and hard working individual with good timekeeping skills. Weave is the primary process I work with, experimenting with detailed repeat patterns, an immense range of colour, shapes, and symmetry. I develop designs through Photoshop and Illustrator. Then, I challenge the limitations on the loom through exploring a range of patterns and materials. I am always willing to learn new skills and love learning new processes.

Work history

2017

Administrator

Camlifts Ltd.

May 2014 - Feb 2017
  • Toomebridge, Antrim BT41 3SD, UK
  • Freelance
  • Working for Cam Lifts, a stairlift company, I had to maintain an organised setting. My role involved ordering stock, sorting out accounts and calculating the wages. It allowed me to strengthen my knowledge on time management and build my confidence with communicating to customers face to face and on the phone. As well as that, I helped with the development of technical drawings and calculated measurements to forward to the production department. This improved my CAD skills and supported my computer skills within Microsoft software.

  • From volunteering as a First Aider for Emergency Medical Services I gained experience on how to work under pressure and work within a team. Supporting events such as charity cycles, football matches and festivals, I encountered a wide range of medical conditions to treat. I learned how to adapt to difficult situations and strengthen my knowledge on handling clients to the best standard.
