Experience

Other Experience

My BA degree was in Travel and Tourism Management and within this I studied subjects such as Event Management, Marketing and Sales. I have done lots of seasonal work, which involved lots of hospitality based work and promoting local brands and companies to customers. I worked as Recruitment Manager for a language school for 2 years from 2009 -2011 and this involved managing hundreds of staff (both within head office and throughout the UK at our Summer language schools). It also involved running and managing recruitment and training days for hundreds of applicants. These days had to be active and fun as the majority of our staff were students.
