Date of Birth: 24/01/1985
I recently discontinued with my university education and am currently seeking full-time employment.
Sept 2005 – Keele University
I knew I could enjoy University, and I wanted to get a degree, so I went back for a third time, originally studying Maths and Economics (Dual Honours) but soon switched to single Maths again. I enjoyed Keele a lot, and feel I gained a lot, and benefited from my time there, despite albeit deciding that University was just not going to work for me.
Sept 2004 – Birmingham University
I decided to go to university again the next year, starting a different course, and also having a new start, here I studied BSc Mathematical Sciences, but I did not enjoy my time at university, became de-motivated, and left halfway through my exams.
Sept 2003 – Nottingham Trent University
I started a three-year course, studying BSc (hons) Sports Science and Mathematics, however along with other personal circumstances soon decided that Sports Science was not the course for me.

Computer literate – I have a generally good level of computer literacy including good knowledge of MS Word and Excel, through my IT modules at University, and previously at school, and also from doing coursework assignments and using computers in my leisure time.
Working in a team – when I was working at Morrisons much of the work involved dealing with, and merchandising the stock deliveries, in a team of up to eight people.
Being prepared to do a share of mundane tasks, e.g. cleaning – I feel this is a quality you need when you work as all work is not going to be exciting or mentally challenging.
Resolving problems – I feel through my Maths background I have learnt to deal with problems in a logical way.
Communication – during my work at Morrisons I was able to develop good communication skills, both with the general public, and also with work colleagues.
Time management and organisation - while at school, managing school work, as well as my part time job, extra curricular activities and my social life was important for meeting deadlines. The same applied to University.
I have a keen interest in music; I am mostly into different forms of punk music, I try to get to a fair amount of gigs, depending on location. For the last two years I’ve been to Reading Festival and this year I will be going to Leeds.
I am also an enthusiastic follower, and player of sport. As well as playing for a club for 4 years, I also previously played football at district level and represented Nottingham Forest on tour in Holland. I also represented my school in basketball, cricket, athletics and rugby. I still play football when I get the chance, but currently do not play competitively.
