    CV

    I have recently returned from Afghanistan where I was deployed with the British Army. As a Territorial Army officer I have been attached to the 1st Battalion Scots Guards since May 2012 for a period of 12 months mobilised service. I now intend to permanently move to the Bristol/Bath area from mid-June 2013. Prior to my deployment I worked for a leading technology company as a Project Engineer, developing high quality custom imaging sensors. I have a first class degree in Physics from University College London.

    While deployed in Afghanistan I was the Plans Officer for a Ground Holding Company in the Upper Gereshk Valley. I had an active role in planning complex intelligence led operations, working to develop detailed coordinating instructions and liaising with higher formations and multi-national partners. I was responsible for developing the proposals required to bid for and justify the use of limited higher level resources to produce the required effect. In addition I have run current operations, coordinating the response to complex incidents across a large area of operations.

    While working at e2v as a Project Engineer, I was part of a Project Delivery Team aiming to develop test methods and technical documentation for a number of key imaging sensors, specifically for Earth Observation Satellites. I worked closely with internal and external customers to help achieve goals within strict time lines. This role helped me to develop data analysis skills, and apply myself to practical science and engineering tasks to achieve a high standard of results within a team.

    I believe my technical and practical knowledge would be useful to your organisation as well as my academic and military experience. I would like to discuss any potential opportunities you think I would be suitable for.

    ---

    I am a physics graduate with recent operational experience in the British Army where I was responsible for planning complex operations within a difficult and challenging environment.

    I have previously worked for a leading technology company where I helped to define and develop suitable test methods and documentation for new technology, according to specific customer requirements. I am now seeking to further my career and to continue to learn and develop.
