George's Profile

Experience Summary

I once appeared on the television program ‘The Weakest Link’ and won it. I'm an enthusiastic, personable and hardworking employee. I love meeting new people and new experiences. I am an active sportsman; playing squash, football, cricket and I enjoy skiing. I coordinated an 11-a-side football league, in which I captained a team. I enjoy travelling; after leaving school I worked for 6 months and travelled for 6 months throughout South America. In late 2014 I travelled through South East Asia for 2 months.
