Work Experience

Position


Job title: Bartender and Waitress
Employer: Molly Malones
Date of employment: August 2018 – Present
Summary of role:

Continued to develop my strong customer service skills in a popular, fast-paced food, drinks and live-music establishment. Achieved a perfect score of 100% for customer service when judged by a mystery guest.

Position


Job title: Bartender
Employer: Cold Beer Company
Date of employment: October 2017 – April 2018
Summary of role:

In this job I furthered my abilities in bartending; working on a much larger bar during very busy shifts, such as when popular boxing and football matches were being shown.

Position


Job title: Bartender and Waitress (Shift Runner)
Employer: Corn Exchange
Date of employment: September 2016 – July 2017
Summary of role:

My role was split across two areas; working behind the bar in a high capacity night time venue and also waitressing during day shifts. During my time as a shift runner I was trained in how to open and close the business, do line checks, receive food and liquor orders and cash management. I ran day shifts alone in the pub and supervised two bars on busy Friday and Saturday nights.

Position


Job title: Sales Assistant
Employer: Gifto
Date of employment: March 2015 – September 2015
Summary of role:

My responsibilities included serving customers at the till, replenishing stock, maintaining the tidiness of the store and helping customers with queries.

Position


Job title: Voluntary Teaching Assistant
Employer: Kilmacolm Primary School Gymnastics Club
Date of employment: 2010 – 2014
Summary of role:

I volunteered as a teaching assistant at my local children’s gymnastic club for 4 years, from 2010-2014. My role was to supervise the children, ensuring they were safe at all times, and to keep them interested and enthusiastic whilst still maintaining focus on the lessons.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I want to teach overseas because I have a passion for travelling and experiencing cultures different from my own. I have been interested in South Korea for a long time and so this would be the perfect opportunity for me. I will be graduating in June and as I have no fixed plans for work in the UK after graduating, this would be the perfect time for me to take a year to work abroad. In the future I would like to either work in human rights or find a job as a refugee resettlement support worker in the UK. In both of these jobs, you must work effectively across cultural and language barriers, therefore teaching overseas would be give me skills that will be very useful later in my career.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I am a friendly, helpful and patient person, so I think I would be perfectly suited for teaching English as a second language. I have experience working with children as a volunteer gymnastics teaching assistant, and so I know how to encourage children’s learning and keep them engaging with lessons while also ensuring that they behave properly! My experiences as a Student Mentor at my University and as President of the Amnesty International Society along with my customer service jobs mean that I have developed exceptional people skills.
