I am a practical, resourceful and dependable individual, with excellent communication skills and a can-do attitude. I am currently studying for a BSc(Hons) in Mathematics and Physics with the Open University with an intent for postgraduate study in aeronautical engineering; this study builds on my experience of working in a high pressure environment in the UK armed forces, honing my organisational skills and self discipline whilst demonstrating my self motivation. These attributes stem from previous roles within the UK armed forces as a Royal Engineer and as an RAF Intelligence Officer. Eleven years in the armed forces have been invaluable in my development as a team player, having both led and followed. My attention to detail and ability to follow instructions were honed by experience of mechanical, electrical and tool maintenance on a multi-discipline worksite as a Royal Engineer; I developed an analytical approach, a desire for complex problem solving with strong written and oral communication skills from my time with the RAF. I am confident that my natural drive as well as my skill set and logical analysis of problems make me well suited for a role within the space industry.
