Work Experience

Position


Job title: Trainee Chartered Accountant
Employer: Burgess Hodgson LLP
Date of employment: July 2016 – August 2017
Summary of role:

I worked at a chartered accounting firm in Canterbury, and performed a wide range of tasks including:
• Teaching and training new employees in relevant tasks that they need to learn for the job, and helping them adjust and integrate with the firm in their first few weeks.
• Audit experience: multiple audits conducted as part of an audit team.
• Professional interaction with a wide range of clients.
• Carrying out a variety of financial functions for a range of clients as required.

Position


Job title: Checkout Assistant
Employer: Waitrose
Date of employment: Sept 2011 – August 2012
Summary of role:

I worked 10 hours a week on the checkouts during my A Levels. We were expected to talk to every customer and this helped develop my conversational skills. I was given the responsibility of closing the store at the end of the day.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I’d love to experience new cultures and to live somewhere different from the UK. I’m half Indonesian, and have travelled to Indonesia many times when I was younger. I found that Asia differs in almost every aspect from Europe, from different climates to a very different culture. I’d love to live somewhere like this for at least a year of my life, and see how my experiences impact upon me as a person. I’d especially like to go to Korea for a few reasons: South Korea is roughly the same size as England which would mean I could see a good amount of the country in my time. It’s also technologically advanced, and being fairly interested in technology and e-sports make it an ideal destination. Finally, I love food and South Korea has a huge variety of cuisines, and I’d love to explore what it has to offer.

I left accountancy as I couldn’t find enough meaning and value in the work. This is why I’d greatly enjoy teaching as I enjoy motivating people: it would give me a much greater satisfaction than dealing with columns of figures for much of the day. I really enjoyed the experience I had teaching younger children sports, as children are so full of energy and react very well to any effort you put in to make the lessons fun and exciting, which is very rewarding.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

In addition to the influences I’ve mentioned above, I’ve had a wide range of experiences which would suit me well for a post teaching overseas. I worked in a professional environment as an accountant for a year, which involved working directly with a variety of clients, from small businesses to fast-moving London financial technology firms. I often had to rapidly answer complex enquiries and learned how to act in a highly professional manner to give confidence to the client. This would help me to interact positively with parents and to be able to discuss how their children are progressing in a sensitive manner.

In contrast to this, I also understand the need to be enthusiastic and to engage with the children while teaching, which I learnt during my TEFL course and experiences running activities with children, such as coaching younger players in club cricket. I’m outgoing and enjoy meeting new people, and have a friendly, patient and upbeat personality. I understand that there are many teaching methods and would enjoy the challenge of adapting my teaching style to the needs of each different learner.

Finally, I’ve an excellent command of the English language, being a native speaker with GCSEs at grade A in English and French. I also learned to use an academic style of English during my degree and professional accounting qualifications when studying subjects such as law, finance and economics. As part of my degree I had to give many presentations, which I learned how to prepare, plan and deliver effectively, often under severe time constraints.
