HOBBIES AND INTERESTS

I have a keen interest in music, and have taught myself to play guitar and piano over the last ten years. I also enjoy listening to music, and have a large collection of CDs covering a broad spectrum of artists and genres. For several years after I left university, I played in a band for pleasure, which aside from strengthening my team-working abilities, also saw me take on such responsibilities such as booking practise and recording sessions, creating artwork and maintaining the band website, and arranging transport. Since departing the band, I have continued to write, record and perform my own music.

I have had a passion for literature, and reading and writing, since I was young. This has lead to me studying English from Higher to undergraduate level. I am currently in the process of writing a novel.

In my spare time, I enjoy taking photographs, and to this end own and operate several of my own digital cameras. I like taking part in team sports, especially football at which I represented my University on several occasions, and I still play football on a weekly basis. I enjoy walking and running, maintaining a high level of health and fitness, and as a result I have not missed a day of work due to illness in the last five years.

OTHER KEY SKILLS

I work well as both a team member, and as an individual, and have in-depth experience of both. I am able to work under my own initiative, I have excellent transferable skills, and I continually want to learn new things. To this end, I am engaged in an ongoing effort to improve my ability to speak French and German.

I have a typing speed in excess of 60 words per minute, and I possess an extensive knowledge of Microsoft Office packages such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and other programs, including Photoshop, AutoCAD, Google SketchUp and Cubase.
