When have you risen to a challenge? Describe your role and any outcomes.
|When I was elected as social secretary of the volleyball club, the club had just suffered a drastic cut in funding due to savings being implemented by the Students' Union and needed to raise funds for travel to fixtures and new team kit. The committee held a brainstorming session and I suggested holding a 24-hour marathon volleyball game. Players would be sponsored for every half-hour played and, when a player needed a break, any student or staff member could join a team for a charge of £1 per ten minutes. As the chief organiser of this event I negotiated with the University, who allowed us to set up a court on the lawn outside the Administration Building; persuaded people to sponsor us and to join in on the day, and publicised it through the campus media and posters. Two days before the event, a joking remark that our team captain should play in a gorilla suit led to a last-minute search for fancy dress costumes and further negotiations with the Drama department and local costume hire businessess. The match attracted considerable attention on campus - thanks largely to the gorilla suit plus the Viking, the vampire and other outfits, both loaned and created by the wearers - and raised £500.|
|Extra-Curricular Activities and Interests
Give any evidence of organising, leading, and initiative
took up volleyball in the sixth form and have played for both the
school and university teams. I am also Social Secretary of the university
volleyball club, which involves organising the annual dinner and fundraising
I enjoy drama and have taken small parts in a number of school and university productions as well as contributing to backstage work.
As the proud owner of a twenty-year-old Mini I have acquired a range of car maintenance skills and often take my car to rallies to meet other Mini owners
I have a great love of travel and have spent several holidays Inter-Railing across Europe with friends. This also enabled me to satisfy other interests such as visiting art galleries and museums and practising my French and Italian
(e.g. foreign languages, computing skills, driving licence)
1) I obtained an A grade in French and a B in Italian at GCSE and have since developed my knowledge of these languages by regular visits to both countries and by reading newspapers and magazines. This has maintained a good working knowledge and given me an additional insight into French and Italian life and culture.
2) Good working knowledge of MS Word and Excel, Word Perfect and the Internet. I produce all my essays on a word processor and have used the Internet for academic and careers research and to plan holidays.
3) Full clean driving licence held for 3 years; First Aid certificate.
|Why have you chosen to apply to our organisation and the functions for which you have applied? Why should we take you rather than other applicants?|
|I believe that Personnel work will make use of my degree background and my interpersonal skills. My degree course included modules in "Business Enterprises" and "Group Behaviour" which have helped to give me a theoretical understanding of large commercial organisations and the people working in them. I have discussed my career choice with a university careers adviser and with a graduate working as a Human Resources Manager in a large company and this has confirmed my decision. The fundamental skills of a Personnel manager are planning, organisation, communication and negotiation, all of which I have developed through my work experience and extra-curricular activities. I am able to learn quickly and to work with all kinds of people in a variety of situations.|
|I am in good all round health.|
|As well as the jobs listed above I have also had vacation and part-time jobs in retail, telesales and fruit-picking.|
