Personal Statement

Clear, logical minded with a practical approach to problem solving and driven to see objectives through to completion. Excellent communication skills developed while working in various customer service roles.

During my degree course I successfully combined my studies with work and other commitments. By achieving this I demonstrated myself to be self-motivated, organised and capable of working under pressure. Completed all assignments on time to the best of my ability, making sure they were accurate and correct. Attended all lectures and arrived on time.

Further improved my skills while working at Quantum Warrior Software where I enjoyed working on my own initiative and also as part of a team. I was seen as a reliable, trustworthy, hardworking and meticulous person. While working in the professional environment I was able to adapt to the new setting quickly and also learnt new skills easily.
