In two separate pieces of coursework thatinvolved analyzing data and reporting on the results I have received Firsts. LEADERSHIP During my time volunteering with Glebe House I am often required to take the lead with a group of children or volunteers to execute activities or go on excursions if an emergency has arisen. By setting myself personal targets to ensure I completed all tasks and guarantee all children in my care we adequatelylooked after, these activities took place without incident and with much praise from my manager. As a senior reading mentor at Down High School I helped younger pupils to improve their public speaking and reading skills as well as encouraging them to read about topics they were interested in.
  • 3. INITATIVE I am highlymotivated, enthusiastic and ambitious.During myfirstweek at Glebe House I was left in charge of running the programme when an emergencyoccurred. I organised activities that received great feedback from the children and kept everything under control. I was able to approach very delicate subject matters with troubled children in a manner that yielded impressive results. INTERPERSONAL I have taken on a major role in many of my group assignments for mydegree.I organized whateach member ofthe group would do, created and analysed data about our chosen topic and presented our findings to the rest of our class. Whilst volunteering for a local charity, Glebe House, I was required to work with a large group of others to co -ordinate activities for 25 children as part of a cross community program in Northern Ireland. This involved being able to speak to the children about a range of things and being able to communicate sensitive information to other staff members in a discrete manner. It was also essential to work to strict deadlines to ensure activities were completed to schedule.I was able to calm down volatile situations through use of creative group work to help the children bridge the gaps between their respective communities. Technical Skills I can confidently use Microsoft Office including Outlook, Word, Access, Excel, Power Point and Publisher. Through my course at university I have also learnt to use some statistical and mathematical software such as Minitab, R, Derive and Matlab. My knowledge of these computer programs allows m e to quickly learn new systems and utilize their abilities. Experience ASSISTANT ACCOUNTANT | G CURRAN & CO ACCOUNTANTS | JANUARY 2011 I worked on clients Income Statements,Statements ofFinancial Position, Cash Budgets and helped create reports on how to maximize their profit margins and minimize losses. VOLUNTERY STAFF MEMBER | GLEBE HOUSE, HARMONY COMMUNITY TRUST | JUNE 2013 - PRESENT In the resentment amongst communities in Northern Ireland, I volunteer with a cross community charity for children that allows them to learn more about other cultures whilst making new friends and providing a holiday for those who are underprivileged.I assisted in making sure the children were keptsafe, distributing medication to those who needed it and working as part of a small team in a sometimes tense, sectarian environment to encourage them to learn about the similarities between their backgrounds. SALES ADVISOR | SUPERDRUG, EAST MIDLANDS AIRPORT | SEPTEMBER 2015 – PRESENT Working individually and as part of a team, I used my many skills to promote sales and complete tasks. By ensuring shopping is a pleasantand easy experience for customers I have encouraged many sales and received positive feedback from many of my colleagues.By remaining a vigilantmember ofstaff, I help guarantee the safety of passengers travelling and approach all potential breeches of security in a professional and effective manner and help my team meet targets. Interests and Hobbies I am very interested in historyand my heritage,especiallyIrish music as Iam a keen singer having been a member ofmy school choir from a young age. Given the divide in communities in Northern Ireland, I enjoy dedicating my free time to volunteering with a local charity. The aim of this work is to educate children abouttheir shared historyand the dangers of repeating the pastin the hope that they can bridge the gap and create a better future for themselves.Although this can be frustrating and challenging at times, it is very rewarding as I believe strongly in being part of the solution and not part of the problem.
