I am a dedicated and reliable worker and I possess excellent listening skills; after my time working in Tunisia as a resident musician at 5 star hotels, I studied at the Saifi Institute for Arabic Language in Lebanon and subsequently took Modern Standard Arabic at SOAS, becoming proficient in Classical Arabic. I previously wrote, staged and conducted a chamber opera during my BA Music Technology degree at the University of Manchester; I am a grade 8 alto saxophonist, and previously worked as a session musician for pop artists such as Royce Wood Junior and Saint Saviour, whilst writing songs under the pseudonym Burhou. This has leant me an excellent ear for both music and working with my colleagues. I have spent the last year working as an Operations Executive at Moodo Limited, a matched betting software company, designing software to bet online. This included extensive work with online software, especially the Microsoft Suite, working with spreadsheets to track our client’s progress; adding confidential client information to our extensive database appropriately whilst creating metadata for client files; using our bespoke software programmes.
