Plymouth, United Kingdom
I graduated in 2006 from the University of Plymouth with a BSc (Hons) in Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology. Since then I have continued studying with the Open University and have so far gained a Certificate in Business Studies and a Certificate in Higher Education (Open). I am currently studying towards a Diploma of Higher Education (Open) for which my main areas of interest are business, management and finance.
I have worked in administration for almost ten years and I am very familiar with the education environment. My previous jobs have included PA, Curriculum Assistant, Assessment Administrator and Faculty Adminsitrator and I am currently working as Secretary to the Dean in the Faculty of Sport & Health Sciences. I am highly organised, efficient and motivated and like to ensure that work is completed on time and to the best possible standard.
I am very proficient in the use of Microsoft Office and hold numerous ICT qualifications such as CLAIT, ECDL, Audio Typing, Text Processing and Word Processing. I am currently studying the ECDL Advanced qualification. I have received training in Data Protection, Safeguarding, Fire Safety, Manual Handling, Equality & Diversity and Customer Service. I am experienced in the use of social media to promote business activity and in basic web design.
In my spare time, I enjoy travel, photography, reading and walking my Chocolate Labrador with my fiancé.
