I am a Spanish and Arabic student at the University of Oxford, graduating in 2016. I am seeking career opportunities in either consultancy or sales, ideally in a position where I can make use of my languages. I am organised, motivated, and a strong communicator. Throughout my time at university, I have made the most of opportunities that have been presented to me, as well as actively seeking out new ones; I am currently Secretary of the JCR, play for the Somerville College First XI football team and captained the 2nd XI in my third year, and have written for new student publication, VERSA News, since its inception, progressing to the role of Section Editor last term, a position in which I excelled, uniquely meeting and exceeding my content targets.
Service Staff @ I work as a waiter at Downing College, serving food and drinks at a variety of events, including, dinners, weddings, and conferences. From September 2014 to Present (1 year 4 months) Cambridge, United KingdomWaiter @ I work at a variety of locations around Cambridgeshire for Select Hospitality as service staff. Throughout my time working for Select, I have consistently been requested to return to work at certain places for the high level of service that I have provided there. From August 2012 to Present (3 years 5 months) Annual Fund Caller @ Over this fortnight-long Telethon campaign, I called alumni in order to maintain relations between them and Somerville College, and to persuade them to donate money to the Annual Fund. This was a record-breaking campaign, with over £300,000 being raised. I personally raised over £20,000 for the college, and was trusted with calling important people with large ask amounts, including MPs and Peers; the largest individual donation I received was €1000/year for 5 years, and I persuaded this particular alumna to start giving on an annual basis for the first time, which gives the college much more financial security and stability. Furthermore, I also worked to repair relations with disillusioned alumnae; one former student was disillusioned with the college and the University of Oxford for its refusal to grant Margaret Thatcher, herself a Somerville alumna, an honorary degree, and she informed me that she wanted nothing to do with the college. After speaking to her, however, and explaining some of the work that Somerville has done in Thatcher's name, she agreed to come into the college to have lunch, and relations between her and Somerville are now being repaired. From September 2015 to October 2015 (2 months) Oxford, United KingdomResearch Intern @ During a two week internship at Salud y Communicación, a Spanish healthcare consultancy firm, I conducted an investigation into the state of innovation in healthcare technologies and inventions in the UK - specifically the mechanisms and structures in place to allow hospital staff to transform new and innovative ideas into tangible, saleable products. I produced a report in Spanish compiling my findings, in order to provide insights into systems and techniques that could be of use to companies seeking the services of Salud y Communicación. From July 2015 to July 2015 (1 month) Intern @ In summer 2014, I completed a two-month internship at ikiOra, a Spanish start-up in the burgeoning same-hour delivery economy. During my time at the months-old company, I completed a range of tasks for them, including analysing their competition, profiling potential customers, writing press notes, managing and updating the product database, and researching ex-pat communities in Madrid.
