Maddie's CV

A highly motivated and hardworking individual, who has completed A levels, achieving A*AB. Looking for work whilst on my year abroad as part of my modern languages degree at the University of Birmingham in German/Italian/Translation, I am able to work both within a team and individually. I am punctual, trustworthy and can be relied upon to complete tasks allocated to me, in addition to using my initiative daily in the workplace.

Work Experience:
 September 2018 – February 2019 Teaching English at The London School in Calabria, Italy as part of my year abroad, enabling me to explore a teaching career and work with people from all backgrounds, of many age groups.
 2016 – Present Being employed by the University of Birmingham as a Student Ambassador has enabled me to improve my skills at dealing with people older and younger than myself, whose first language is not necessarily English.
 Summer of 2017 Working as a housekeeper at Regency Villas has enabled me to improve my time management skills and hone my ability to work efficiently and independently.
 2015 – Present Working at a coffee shop in my home city has enabled me to practise my German and Italian language skills, improve my customer service skills and has given me valuable experience in dealing with difficult customers whilst working as part of a team.
 May 2015-2016 Volunteering in a Cancer Research UK store at weekends, providing me with retail experience, customer service and a direct link with the public, as well as practising German with customers who speak little English. Working with a team of people who have learning difficulties has taught me patience, and the value of being able to explain something in a variety of ways. This also enabled me to become competent with the use of an EPOS till.

Key areas of strength include:
 Communication:
 Dealing with customers and their needs as part of my work at Canteen and as a student ambassador in more recent years.
 Adapting my communication skills to deal with different queries from members of the public during a variety of jobs.
 Working as a teacher of English in Italy and Austria as part of my year abroad, enabling me to improve my teaching skills and work with people of all age groups.
Languages:
 I am undertaking a bachelor’s degree in Italian and German, as well as a translation pathway.
 I have been able to further my languages through the various aforementioned job roles.

Organisation:
 Organising and planning workshops with school children as part of my student ambassador work.
 Helping to set up and organise various cake sales and fundraising events at lunchtimes within school to raise money, including a tombola to raise money for Amnesty International
 I will be planning sessions for teaching whilst in Italy on my year abroad

Working with others:
 Level 1 Sports Leader Award achieved whilst completing my GCSEs, working with younger children in secondary and primary schools. As part of this I had to lead activities and plan sessions, demonstrating organisational and leadership qualities.
 Partaking in one on one tutoring with a younger pupil of German at school.

I.T. Skills:
 I am competent in the use of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Publisher.
 I am till trained on both EPOS systems as well as non-electronic till systems.
 I am very quick at adapting to new Intranets and virtual learning environments.
 I am competent in the use of TRADOS translation software.
