I have been home in the United Kingdom for 3 months after spending 5 years in China, 3 days after landing at LHR commencing a 3 month IT Technical placement for a successful insurance & financial advisory in the City. Prior to this spending the previous 5 years teaching English language and culture to children ‘young learners’ and adults in the provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang. The richness of living and learning and teaching in a culture so different to what I had known all of my life, was a singular experience that benefitted me both professionally and personally.

During this half decade in China I helped to create multiple engaging and popular curricula for students and adults alike, with my efforts being rewarded with high parent and student approval, along with being sought out to provide additional tutoring via a multitude of additional assignments (not listed on this CV for brevity). One such example, tutoring a student to aid in his successful application to study Chemical Engineering at MIT (USA).

During my final two years in China, a nation immersed in new and developing technologies, I began to take courses in SQL and data analytics. I spent much of my free time (in between and during ‘lock-downs’) enhancing my knowledge within these fields. By Mid-2022 I had completed SQL for Data Science and Google Data Analytics Certifications.

On my return, the 3 month IT Technical contract placement with Matrix Global Services Limited was a success which I hope the appended reference attests to, and my next goal is to find a permanent placement specifically within a large or ‘start up’ IT organisation, which I hope will afford and enable me the opportunity to further progress my development and career within the IT arena which is where I see my future.
