EXPERIENCE
15/05/2014 – 15/09/2016
PARTY HOST
LO~GY GYMNASTICS CENTRE
I had a weekend job as a party host/assistant supervisor for childrens’ birthday parties whilst I was in school. I ensured the safety of the children, kept the gymnasium tidy, and answered phone calls to arrange parties at the gym. I developed good communication and customer service skills during this time.

GYMNASTICS/TRAMPOLINING COACH
LO~GY GYMNASTICS CENTRE
After school on Tuesdays I volunteered as a gymnastics and trampolining coach to children aged 5 – 10. During this time I developed leadership skills, the ability to motivate children to learn gymnastics, and I became aware of safety procedures in gymnastics and trampolining.

19/09/2016 – 13/02/2017
CARE WORKER
CARELINE (CITY AND COUNTY HOMECARE)
During my gap year I held a full-time position as a care worker for the elderly. I was responsible for washing and dressing my clients, ensuring they had taken their medication, making meals for them and socializing with them. This job required me to be responsible and to have excellent organizational skills, and communication skills.

In my spare time I have volunteered at Saltersgate School for Children with Special Needs. This was a rewarding experience which improved my non-verbal communication skills greatly. I have also volunteered as a gymnastics coach, as I was a gymnast for much of my childhood. I have also volunteered at a pensioners’ club making tea and coffee, as I enjoy working with the elderly.
I am also involved in activities within my university, such as the art society and gymnastics.
