I was a bar tender at The City of Quebec Bar/Nightclub for four months, my roles included face to face customer service where i provided excellent customer care being front of house, other roles included Cash Handling, Pouring/serving Drinks, Stocktaking, Cleaning and Barrel Changing, this was a really fun role where I was challenged on a daily basis and worked effectively on my own and as part of a team to deliver the upmost customer service.
I recently was a graffiti consultant for the Angela Lansbury Film Festival where I created the calligraphy for the event, made the stencils and spray painted the work. This was a really fun design role where I got to use my practical skills to create something for Poplar Council and for an actress I have always greatly admired, Angela Lansbury.
I was the representative for the woven textiles department during my second year at university. In this role I met with staff, including the dean of Central Saint Martins, to discuss important issues which arose from students. I continued to help find solutions to better the learning experience for all parties. The skills i gained from this were negotiating, learning more about business in general and public speaking.
Whilst I was studying for my Foundation Diploma in Art & Design I was personally asked by my tutor to do the set design for the BA (Hons) Fashion show at Batley School of Art & Design. It was a really great role where I got to work in a fast paced environment working to a deadline. Also, being personally approached for this job made a huge difference to my creative confidence, ensuring my work was a success.

I worked at Ethel Austen for just under a year as a customer assistant. This was a really fun job in an environment which required using initiative to complete tasks quickly. In such an environment which was very customer orientated, I developed good face to face customer service, cash handling, cleaning techniques and delivery and stock replenishment.
