Host Assistant (Former Employee) – London – 17 March 2016
basic hospitality skills I experienced has given me the will power to learn more advanced hospitality skills. The staff and management were very encouraging and friendly and we all got along throughout this busy environment. Throughout the first couple of days I found difficult and only completed duties unless I was ordered to due to being my first experience but this all changed and started using my own imitative. I had fun whilst learning and would like to expand this experience

Shadow of Solicitors (Former Employee) – London – 30 July 2015
A typical day would begin at 9am and conclude at 5pm. In order to ensure certain punctuality, I would aim to arrive at work at any time between 8.30 and 8.45. This was done so as to avoid any delay on the Tube - which is somewhat inevitable on the London Underground - in order to arrive at work at the required time. I worked in a group of seven to perform tasks. One of our tasks was to engage in a debate with the other team of 7. This entailed that each member researched and became quite confident in company knowledge. As we worked as a team, I found that communication was essential - any lack of this would result in failure to achieve the task. I believe that in the world of work, communication, punctuality, initiative and dependability are essential features one must obtain. The hardest part of the job for me would simply have been the prospect of being thrown unprecedented changes in the tasks we were given. However I quickly learnt to use this to my advantage as it developed in me the ability to perform well under pressure. I believe the most enjoyable part was conducting my own personal research for the debates - as I regarded this as a method of improving my personal knowledge and skills and consequently improving my work performance.
