I am a recent Graduate actively looking for work within Stage Crew and Production for Theatre, TV and Film. I am also interested in Retail, Sales and Merchandise because I feel both experiences within each different sector of the working world are of equal interest to me and equally I fell I would exceed in each. I am motivated to complete tasks given and equally enjoy working in a team environment. Coupled with a polite manner and excellent sense of responsibility to work.
I acted as an intermediary between the directors and the actors, ensuring backstage was in order for the show to run smoothly. During the month we all lived together, my role became more about managing relationships than it did the day-to-day running of the show. My duties included managing a team of up to ten cast and crew each day for our show, which was to an audience of fifty people each day. I had to solve any problems that arose in a quick and creative manner; this meant making lots of decisions on your feet and acting quickly. I kept everything off stage running smoothly this meant the changing room, set, costume and cast. This experience has helped me learn a lot about working with others to ensure a happy cast and crew but ultimately a successful show.
As a Senior Sale Assistant in a high-end boutique my roles ranged from merchandising of stock to customer service and general up keep of the store. I was able to communicate well with the customers, as this was key to the succession of my role. I was a senior sales assistant in Emily Brigdens Ladies Boutique. Communication was a key skill in this role. My roles ranged from Sales to merchandising and rotation of stock to customer Health and safety. I also had to undertake tasks for the general up keep of the store. I was able to communicate well with the other members of the team and flexibility was required as we operated a rota system that changed frequently
The wide range of modules I took over the course of my degree allowed me to build a competent understanding and passion for research development, writing and learning. It focused on elements of eloquence, creativity and analytical skills which I anticipate being integral to future areas of work and career pathways. My ability to gain an all round life experience through my peers and lecturers has resulted in the realization of my passion for the many different innovative designers and the history of Textiles.
This course was described as one of the strongest and most distinctive foundation programmes in the country, the course enabled me to develop the necessary skills and portfolio to apply to a range of art and design degree courses. This lead me onto my Degree at MMU in Textiles.
