I am currently a 4th year student at the University of Glasgow looking for any opportunity to further develop and put to use my chemistry knowledge, both theoretical and practical based. The Glasgow Medicinal Chemistry degree has allowed me to build a strong foundation of extensive chemical knowledge in the form of Organic, Inorganic and Physical chemistry as well as invaluable laboratory work achieving an overall GPA of 14.33. I am a very self-motivated person that thoroughly enjoys working with others and the challenges that both practical and analytical chemistry bring. My reliability, communication skills and duteous nature are other essential qualities that I would apply to the job.

EXPERIENCE

Varying chef positions:

Started as a commis chef at The Riverside developing vital culinary skills before advancing onto a head chef position at The Crook and Matilda’s simultaneously completing level 2 hygiene course and evolving my skill set on a variety of cooking methods and food groups. Chefing allowed me to work well under pressure and be able to not only take orders and carry them out in the professional, committed manner but also gave me the opportunity to take charge of fellow colleagues entailing duties such as stock control, time management and fast paced decision making.
