      • Full Time
      • During and between education, I have worked in hospitality. While working full-time at Caffe Nero, I was appointed as key-holder which required me to manage shifts, deal with paperwork and cash-up the tills. Working while studying highlights my responsible nature while expanding my management, organisation, multitasking and customer relations skills. I am a confident communicator, in person and on paper.
