I am currently looking for work in the IT field ideally based in the south of england somewhere but I would happily consider moving further afield if the need arose. Hopefully I intend to someday get involved in a job to do with the web but at the moment any computing experience would be helpful to me in order to build up my overall computing experience. below is a copy of my present C.V.

Work experience



Summer 1996

K.M. Engineering, Parnell Rd Trading Estate. Bristol. Machine operator using milling equipment to produce small metal items. During the four weeks of work I learnt to work both on my own and at times as part of a small team. Also I learnt the importance of meeting deadlines and co-operating with fellow members of staff to complete the job in hand.




Part time bar work for Whitbread plc. This involved general bar work, serving customers and handling cash.




Interests and Activities




During my time at university I attended several computational courses. This led to a keen interest in computing especially with regard to the W.W.W. I also taught my self to program in HTML and have produced several web pages, and I have been involved with the programming of a multi-user dungeon (MUD) in a UNIX environment using LPC.




Travelling is a keen interest of mine. This led me to go Inter-railing in the summer of 1996, to the south of Europe, in particular Italy and Greece. This summer, I spent two weeks hitch-hiking around Ireland and three weeks hitch-hiking around north Europe. As well as being enjoyable my travels have been a useful learning exercise, as I had to learn to be willing to change plans depending on the situation with little notice, and also to be much more independent. Another skill I gained from it was the ability to communicate with people even though there was often a severe language barrier.



Young Enterprise Scheme completed during sixth form.

Assistant managing director of a company set up to manufacture and sell clocks. My role was in the acquisition of parts and the organisation of people in the construction of the goods.









A working good knowledge of both Windows 3.11 and Windows 95. Also Office 95.



A reasonable good understanding of FORTRAN 77, Matlab, HTML and LPC programming languages



Good key boarding skills and I am at the moment teaching myself to touch type



I have also completed courses in communication presentation skills.



Full clean driving license.
