Recent Marketing Graduate, who talks quite a bit and is keen to enter the real world of work. During university I was keen to not just grow within the university bubble but expand beyond it. I was social secretary for the study abroad society and took the traditional tea party event and twisted it on its head, think Long island iced tea out of teacups and cherry bakewell shots. I fully immersed myself in a three week cultural programme in India, where I interacted with local students to street children. I am curious. I love knowing and finding out more and more, experiencing more. To be creative , is seeing things in a perspective different to the norm. I believe my travels, my experiences and my interactions give me that perspective.
Assisted international students with adapting to Lancaster University. I planned and managed social events; designed to help them build relationships. As well as answer any general queries they had and take them on tours.
Based in a community petrol station, I provided a friendly and helpful service to customers. Responsible for authorization of fuel pumps, warehouse/fuel deliveries, cash handling and customer complaints and queries. The role taught me how to stay calm in pressing situations, specifically when the store was busy.
On open days and interviews I was invited to pitch to prospective students about the university and course. I answered any enquiries from the prospective students and their parents. I often was asked to give impromptu presentations at the request of the university during last minute timetable changes.
Promoted student events on social media (Facebook/Instagram) and in person at university (Leaflets), in order to create demand and facilitate personal customer base. On many occasions sales were down to timely follow ups and relationships created with customers.
