Personal profile

I have recently left school with good A-levels in art and design, textiles, and English literature. I am looking for a job that will enable me to extend my existing skills, take on new challenges and learn about the retail industry. During the last few years I have had retail work experience which has given me a good insight into the various activities involved in making and selling clothing. I have also developed my design skills by studying a fashion design course in my spare time and have had one of my art projects displayed at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Volunteering in a charity shop has given me valuable experience of dealing with customers.

  • Prefect at Varndean School: September 2016 – June 2016
  • Peer mentor at Varndean School: September 2013 – June 2017
