Stephen's Profile

Experience Summary

I am a confident, self-driven and enthusiastic worker with good communication skills and a strong background in the acting profession. I have worked in a number of different fields while pursuing an acting career, from working as contract staff on London Underground supervising the buskers, census collector and more recently bank work for Birmingham Mind, which lead to a full-time contract. All of which has meant I have built up a lot of experience and I’ve naturally had to be both a good team player and be comfortable working independently.
