I have a very keen interest in food, particularly baking. I have been baking and making and decorating cakes for years, I have made many specialty cakes for people for various occasions. I am in my second year of University, and this year I am a contributing writer to the food section of the University Times Magazine. I also have my own food blog, where I post recipes that I have tried at home and share them with the people reading my blog.

Office work, factory floor work
'Irelands Eye Knitwear'
June 2013 - August 2014
I have worked at Irelands Eye Knitwear the past three summers, I gained a huge amount of experience here. I worked in both the office and on the factory floor. In the office I answered phones, dealt with customer queries, took and processed orders, and learned many general skills. On the factory floor I worked on the production line as well as tagging the garments, bagging them and boxing them for shipment. I also worked at two trade shows in New York, where I dealt with customers and promoted the product, as well as taking orders.
Waitress, and also Baker in the Kitchen.
'Seasons' Cake shop/cafe
March 2011 - May 2011
The job was a brilliant opportunity to learn new skills about baking and I found it very interesting. I was offered this position after I had completed Transition Year Work Experience here and was highly commended. Unfortunately due to health reasons I had to leave the position. I learnt a lot of skills such as dealing with customers, adhering to health and safety rules in the kitchen, I waited on tables, cleared tables and also worked in the kitchen baking and cooking.
Here are some pictures of cakes I have made and also cakes I have made to order.
