Experience

Creating educational resources for educators all over the world.

Design and Admin Intern at City Church Sheffield

September 2017 – Present Sheffield, GB

For the last year I’ve been working as an intern for City Church Sheffield with a focus on design.
My roles have varied from helping with the re design process of the website to helping manager a weekend away for over 300 people. I’ve learnt a whole range of admin skills and developed real world skills working in a office setting as part of a team.
I’ve also designed a range of leaflets and media campaigns for various events and projects.
This year has been invaluable for teaching me my own capabilities and design potential.

Craft Teacher/Leader at Just Craftin' Around

2017 – 2018 Sheffield, GB

Over a year ago I set up and developed a series of non-profit craft classes. I have then continued to run them over 3, 7 week blocks for the last year.
The aim of the craft evenings was to bring adults from across Sheffield together to build friendships whilst learning a new craft.
They have been very successful and I have found that they have been in such demand due to the nature of them combating the loneliness found in our culture. They have connected people together through a shared interest and have been wonderful to run. I’ve done all the marketing and branding for the classes as well as leaflets.
I have developed further as a designer through them and allowed my leadership skills to grow.

Senior Barista & Bookseller at Waterstones

2015 – Present Sheffield, GB

As a barista/bookseller my main role is customer service and ensuring that I’m giving the best service to every customer. As part of my job I help run events from book signings to creative themed craft evenings. Using my creative background I’ve made props for window displays and point of sale as well as events such as; the Harry Potter Midnight release and Roald Dahl party.
I currently am in charge of running the Sci-Fi & Fantasy book club which has developed my skills as a leader and helped build wonderful friendships and relationships between customer and shop.
