I am currently a undergraduate at KCL. Expecting to graduate with a first class degree in biomedical science with extra mural year. Would love a creative job !
At the DCC I was employed as an analytical scientist, screening athlete biological samples for prohibited substances. I was responsible for operating a number of drug screens as well as interpreting and analysing the data produced. It was my responsibility to use the data I generated, alongside the governing body regulations, to declare samples positive or negative. During my time at the DCC I carried out an independent project into the detection of newly prohibited substances. This allowed me to exercise and develop my creative thinking and project management skills. In addition to this I was given the responsibility of training newer staff members, played a regular role in team meetings and suggested numerous changes to protocols that were accepted into the labs SOP. My position allowed me to monitor samples from arrival to destruction; I enjoyed being able to oversee the process from start to finish.
During my first year at The Minories, I performed duties as a waitress serving food, cleaning tables and ensuring customer satisfaction. I played an important role in the team, taking the responsibility of team leader on late shifts. After a year I was promoted to working on the bar, where I served drinks, placed orders and organised bookings. I enjoyed both roles as I love talking to people and my outgoing personality and patience allowed me to perform both positions well. The opportunity to work busy parties and social events, whilst managing walk in customers, shaped me to work well under pressure and maintain a positive attitude. In 2015 I worked as a cocktail waitress in a London sky bar. The duties of this role were similar, however as this was a high-end bar I had the chance to interact and work with a different clientele. My experience and confidence allowed me to adapt quickly and I became a valuable team member often being trusted to work private events.
