        Project Member

        Veolia

        Jun 2015 - Jul 2015

        • Freelance
        • I took part in a collaborative project between Veolia Environmental Solutions and the University of Brighton, developing uses for their ‘Pro-Fibre’ material which is made from low-grade waste paper.

        2016

        Feb 2015 - May 2016
        • Brighton BN2 4GB, UK
        • Freelance
        • I volunteered in my university peer proofreading service, checking around three assignments per term for international students needing support in English. Assignments would be emailed to me and I would suggest changes with the Microsoft Word 'track changes' tool, and send it back within a few days. If they wanted to, I would occasionally meet with the student to go through the changes I had suggested. I needed excellent communication skills and a high level of English.

        2014

        Jun 2014 - Sep 2014
        • Northiam, Rye TN31 6PH, UK
        • Freelance
        • Volunteered part-time at a well-known public garden, working with their full-time carpenters. I learned traditional craft methods such as wood splitting and using a drawknife, to make wooden hurdles, benches and ladders out of sweet chestnut to sell in the gift shop. Machine tools such as a circular saw were also used to speed up the production line.

        2013

        Craft Club Leader

        Tonbridge Grammar School

        Sep 2012 - May 2013
        • Tonbridge, United Kingdom
        • Freelance
        • I ran an after-school arts and crafts club girls aged 11-14 at my school, preparing and leading the sessions independently. This required me to organise a completely new session every week, including the sourcing of materials and information. During the classes I had to give clear, effective instruction to pupils, ensure safe working and command a degree of respect. I learned how to give students a clear aim but to give plenty of room for creativity, and how to get this balance right when designing a lesson plan.
