Will's Profile

Experience Summary

I have recently finished my degree at The University of Manchester and am currently very keen to find work in the promotions industry. I enjoy meeting new people, I'm extremely hard working and given the chance, I would relish the opportunity to demonstrate my skills to a potential employer. I enjoy playing many sports and whilst studying for my degree, I was in the university rugby and boxing teams. I have been skiing and snowboarding from a very young age and my passion for sports doesn't end there, since each year I travel to different European destinations as a sports instructor of a sports camp. Recently appointed as the head of sports, I am in charge of the procurement of all sporting equipment as well as the coordinating of all sporting activities. I achieved a 2.1 in my degree, which was in Aerospace Engineering (MEng.) This was a four year course, during which I managed to secure a part time bar job for a hospitality agency, which helped finance my degree. I enjoy listening to a wide range of music and have reached a grade 8 standard on the piano, which has allowed me to give private tuition to beginners in the past.
