Employment history:


2020-2020            Kitchen assistant/barista – Coffee crate, Essex

I worked at the coffee crate during the COVID pandemic as a summer job before I went back to university. I was the main kitchen assistant being in charge of preparing all the food orders and sometimes helping out making drinks. My duties also involved keeping check of stock and deliveries, cleaning the kitchen, till handling and waitressing.


2017 –

 onwards            Kitchen staff/waitress, Wilkin & Sons – The Lock Tearoom, Essex

I have been working for at the tearooms since college and still regularly work there during holiday breaks from university.   I can carry out a variety of job roles, such as waiting tables, serving customers, till handling, food preparation and other kitchen duties making me a valued employee who is regularly called upon at short notice to cover absences in addition to my scheduled rota.

I have trained new employees who work in the kitchen and hold a Level 2 Food Hygiene and Health and Safety Certificate.



2013 – 2017       Kitchen porter, The New Times - Carvery/pub, Essex

I worked as a kitchen porter at The New Times pub for four years throughout my GCSEs and my A levels showing my commitment and ability to organise work and study time.  This was a fast-paced environment which required efficiency and speed, without compromising on a high standard of cleanliness.  My role was to ensure the crockery and cookware was washed, sterile and dry and available for re-use throughout the service period.  At the end of service, the ovens and kitchen area were cleaned down and ready for the next shift.



2011 – 2015       Paper round delivery, The Tribune, Essex

Regular delivery of a local community paper to 200 points, throughout the year.  The delivery was time sensitive, so it was important to be reliable and work to deadlines.

Extracurricular activities/achievements:


Biological and marine sciences subject prize 2019-2020 (University of Hull)

I was awarded the subject prize award after completing my marine biology degree for achieving the highest grade within my year.


NCS Award

I took part in the National Citizen Service award in 2015, this involved working in a team for three weeks.  We lived away for two weeks and undertook team bonding exercises, and structured activities where we had to plan, organise and complete a project that would improve or help our local community.   Our project was to create a “quiet room” for a Centre which supported Adults with mental health issues.

Horse riding/ Equestrian society

I enjoy horse riding and being around the stables, voluntary working to muck out, tack up the horses for lessons and support younger more inexperienced riders. I’m also currently a member of the university equestrian society and participate in weekly lessons.

Tiptree Heathland volunteering

As part of a voluntary group I have helped with the management of our local heathland, it is the largest surviving fragment of heathland in the County of Essex and is home to many rare plants. My roles involved clearing drainage ditches and ponds, clearing scrubland away and cutting down unwanted trees.
