Environmental Services

I am keen to get involved with all aspects of ecology and environmental sciences in order to help communicate the action necessary to work towards a sustainable ecology. From ecological surveys, data analysis to corporate training and communication.

I am currently trying to find where my experience and skills are a "best fit".

A brief CV

After graduating from St Anne’s College, Oxford, with a degree in Chemistry I joined Pfizer as a pharmaceutical sales representative. Towards the end of my eleven years with  Pfizer I moved into IT Training. On leaving Pfizer I joined Oxfordshire Mental Healthcare Trust, where I delivered basic IT training to staff within OMHT and the Primary Care Trusts across Oxfordshire. After a couple of years I moved on to European Electronique, a small IT reseller based in Eynsham. I spent four years there, delivering  Microsoft Office training and support. I also learnt to use and deliver training on interactive white boards, FITS (ITIL for schools), Moodle and a number of classroom voting systems.

From European Electronique I joined Corporate Project Solutions (CPS), a consultancy that specialises in Microsoft Project, Project Server, Project Online, SharePoint and CRM solutions. Initially I worked purely as a training consultant but gradually moved into a full consultancy role, managing the whole project lifecycle.

In recent years I have developed more of an interest in the outdoors and the environment. The more I learnt the more interested I became in the problems surrounding the global overpopulation, global warming and the decline in biodiversity. I decided that I wanted to be part of the solution to these problems.

So, in March 2015 I left my job with CPS to explore new opportunities and options.

My plan is to find a role, that best fits my experience and skills, within an organisation that supports research and education into how we can promote a sustainable environment.

To this end I took a course in mapping and GIS earlier this year. In September I start another course, a part time Post Graduate Certificate in Ecological Survey Techniques. Both these courses are delivered by the Oxford University Department of Continuing Education.

I am also taking the latest Microsoft Office 2013 courses to refresh my Microsoft Office Specialist Master certification.

To broaden my ecological knowledge I am taking part in a number of plant surveys.

I am currently assisting Earthwatch as a research intern.
