Candidate's Resume

 

Overview

I completed VCE in 1997 and soon after moved into the workforce. I started out as a food processing employee for a macadamia manufacturing company and after a change of heart moved into warehouse work with a furniture manufacturer.

After several years there i had an opportunity to play a season of cricket in England which i couldn't pass up. Having had such a great experience over there i continued to do this for a further 2 years, spending 6 months in Australia and 6 monthe in England. Whilst in Australia i worked casually as a Fork Lift Driver and whilst in England i worked various jobs, from Bar manager to assembly worker to telesales consultant.

Since settling back in Australia i have been employed as a storeman for a food delivery service company until present day.

Achievements

My biggest achievement was getting my fork lift license. This enabled me to work a greater variety of roles within warehouse work as well as earn more money.
