Shanna's CV

Personal Statement
I am a reliable, hardworking person who is always full of enthusiasm and dedication. I work well as an individual and also in a group environment. I always put the utmost effort into everything I do and if I am given a task, I get that task done to the best of my abilities. I have had previous retail and sales experience and have also worked in a foreign country so have heightened skills of communication. I love to help people and always push myself to do better in whatever job I am in. I would love a career that involved working with, and helping people.

Work experience
August 2017-Present Subway
I work as a team member at South Bridge Subway. I am responsible for making customers’ orders as well as putting it through on the till. I am often responsible for early openings or late closings where I need to organise stock, cash up the tills and clean the shop. I have enjoyed working with the team as well as individually and taking on new responsibilities. I require to give 1 weeks’ notice.

September 2016-June 2017 Les Petits Bilingues Nanny/Teacher
I worked as both a nanny and an English teacher in France. I looked after 5 children as a nanny where I picked them up from school and spent a few hours with them every day. I also worked in a classroom environment where I taught English to children from 6 months-12 years. My class sizes ranged from 3 children to 10 children in one class. This classroom experience has enforced a long-had idea that Primary School teaching is definitely something that I would like to pursue as a career.

September 2013-September 2014 Nanny, Paris
I worked as a nanny/housekeeper for a family in Paris. It was a 1 year contract with duties including looking after 2 children (taking to/from school, bathing, playing etc) and also household duties (cleaning, tidying).

September 2012-March 2013 CAV Nightclub
I worked as a bar tender at CAV during my first year of university. I was responsible for taking and making drinks orders as well as restocking, cleaning and closing down at the end of a shift. I enjoyed the fast-paced environment and being part of a team. The experience taught me bar tending skills as well as improving my ability to cope well under busy conditions and showed me how to handle situations that may arise at a bar.

September-November 2011 Au Pair
I worked as an au pair in France, where I looked after an 11 year old boy and a 6 year old girl. My duties were to take and pick them up from school, help them with their homework, help them get washed, entertain them, tidy the house and teach them English.

Interests
Music - I love music and have been involved in it for several years. I play trumpet, cornet, tenor horn, keyboard and I also sing. Music has been my passion from a very young age.
Drama – I have always been interested in drama. I used to be part of a theatre company that would put on shows for the public and also took part in several competitions. I was awarded a B for my higher drama and when I was 16, I started up a theatre group for underprivileged children.
Socialising – I love spending time with friends and family. Having fun, I believe is a key part of life as it allows you to loosen up and do a better job when working as you can concentrate on the task at hand.

Skills
Music – As I mentioned, I play many instruments and have been participating in music for most of my life.
Languages – I am currently studying French and Chinese at university and I also lived in France for 2 months which helped me greatly improve my language and communication skills.
