Sophie's Profile

Experience Summary

I am hard working with good inter-personal and social skills. I consider myself to be versatile being happy to work as an individual or as part of a team. I am a Mathematics graduate and have managed to achieve a variety of working experiences before and during my time at university. I am looking to apply and develop my knowledge and skills within a working environment at any level. For the past 5 months I have travelled South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand. I have enjoyed my travelling immensely and I think it's helped me to develop my social skills and become extremely independent. Having previously registered with stuck for staff in the UK I have gained experience in a number of areas and I enjoy the varied work this application enables.

  • Accredited to work with children

    During my time at University I was part of the dance club. Part of being involved with the dance club meant we went to local schools to teach dance voluntarily. In order to do this I had to obtain a CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) and this disclosure enabled the schools to decide for themselves if I was suitable to be around the children. I also had a similar job teaching maths to children at GCSE level.
