Curriculum Vitae


Personal Statement


I am highly motivated towards gaining my geology degree at Edinburgh University as I would like to be involved with survey work for an oil company. I work well with others and enjoy problem solving, as demonstrated by my summer job of IT support at Taylor Made Insurance Brokers. I also enjoy working with and helping the public using the experience gained from my work experience at Lancaster Library and working for the Edinburgh Council surveying the use of concessionary travel permits on busses.
