I am currently studying Journalism at the University of Salford. I am very comfortable at working as part of a team or individually, this is because since the age of 15 I actively enjoyed and looked for work. Whether it be odd jobs such as delivering leaflets to houses in Blackpool or working in an office helping the people employed there, I have a real desire and passion for working. I am a good communicator and can easily talk to, and get along with, new people. It does not take me long to be able to work well with them. I would describe myself as a fast learner that is also confident and outgoing. I work well under pressure and I am comfortable in a busy environment. I’ve also done some volunteer work where I taught primary school children sports. I have a very good understanding of most computer programs that are commonly used in professional situations. I am a very adept at being able to optimise and add content to online news stories. I am also a fully qualified driver and passed my driving test at the beginning of February 2013.
