Career History
• July 06-November 08 - Eurest (Friends Provident), Dorking

• I worked for this catering company during the school holidays and permanently from
June onwards.

• From February ’09 to June ’09 I took time off to travel around South Africa,
Australia, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Honduras and Guatemala. I spent two of those
months doing charity work; working with injured monkeys and endangered reptiles,
in South Africa and Honduras respectively. This wasn’t just an amazing experience
for me but a valuable one too, learning new skills such as Scuba Diving, improving
my French and Spanish further and meeting so many different people from so many
different backgrounds and learning to respect, understand and work with them.
• Since travelling I have been doing a lot of events work due to my University
commitments. I have done bar work at Royal Ascot, Twickenham and Wembley
Stadium amongst others within the last 12 months.
