About Me

Dear Sir / Madam, I would like to apply for the job vacancy, please find my Curriculum Vitae attached. Throughout my experience in each role I have always put customers first, by being an attentive listener and using my communication skills to cater to their needs. Although I work well on my own initiative, I am a dedicated team player. I am very trustworthy and have been allocated jobs in school, most recently being the debs committee treasurer, which requires being responsible for cash management, banking and basic accounts. I have always been socially committed and have worked as a volunteer for the last three summers, Easter and Halloween breaks and every weekend as a respite camp facilitator. I worked with children of all abilities catering to their needs, as a dance tutor supported by SNA’s and childcare staff. I was able to use my interest in music to a positive, teaching art and dance classes there. Here I was trusted with registering clients, recording fees and money management. I have worked in two hair salons where I gained great experience. I organized appointments with customers on the phone, cleaned areas/work-spaces and served refreshments. Working in Oxfam charity shop, I achieved a vast amount of experience in the retail sector. I took part in customer sales, restocking of items and upkeep of the shop. In the Youth Café, I attended to needs of children and teenagers, organized files and volunteers, and cleaning and restocking the café. I believe my past experience would make me a good contender for your household. I am eager to learn new skills and to improve on the skills I have already learned. I hope you find me to be a suitable candidate for the position. I am available for interview anytime. Awaiting your kind reply, Katie Sandgrove Coss CURRICULUM VITAE PERSONAL DETAILS Names: Katie Sandgrove Coss Date of Birth: 21/10/2001 Telephone: **** E-mail: **** KEY SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE PROFILE No Limits Ability Centre/ All Abilities Weekends and School Breaks 2015-2020 Dance Tutor 2019-2020 • Covid -19 - Online dance & drama programme • Working in a person-centered leadership role • Phone sales, staff rotas, cash management and accounts • Programme development • Supervising young children in a special needs camp • Teaching young children through art & dance • Working one on one, supporting SNA’s & childcare staff, in respite camps. • Dealing with any client issues arising Camp Leader Responsibilities 2015-2018 • Registering clients, recording fees and banking monies • Use of cash register • Working with 18-92 year olds on life skills courses, teaching basic make-up techniques and nail care • Supporting staff minding children of all abilities The Company Hair Salon Hair Assistant responsibilities: • I completed a period of work experience in The Company hair salon and this has given me good face to face customer experience. • Customer sales & returns • Stock refills John Coss Hairdressers Hair Assistant responsibilities: • Phone sales and appointments • Cleaning areas and work-spaces • Mixing dyes for clients • Washing hair Youth Café Portlaoise • Writing letters, helping with mailshots • Sorting files • Organising volunteers for café duty • Café cleaning, stock refills Oxfam Charity Shop • Restocking of items • Customer sales • Upkeep of shop Education • June, 2017.
