First name: Giorgia
Category: Conservation & Environmental Management
Short introduction: I am a second year BA Geography student at the University of Exeter searching for a placement. I am particularly interested in sustainability and I would like to go into the field of environmental/sustainable consultancy once I graduate, therefore I am searching for a placement which ideally would be in this field however, it is not essential as I know that any placement would be incredibly beneficial and valuable to gain experience from.
Education, skills knowledge and experience: 10 GCSEs all A*/A. At A Level, I studied Geography, Health and Social Care and chemistry, achieving A*, B and D. Alongside geography, I am working at an intermediate French level, which I hope to continue and advance throughout my time at university. My previous experience consists of two part-time jobs as a sales assistant, one during A-Levels and one during my first and part of my second year of University. I developed skills in customer service, teamwork and organisation. In addition, I volunteered at a local nursery during Summer 2017, completed a week of work experience in the Histology Department at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital, and from January I will be starting a 12-week volunteering programme working in a local primary school with children from disadvantaged backgrounds. During school and sixth form I completed the Level 3 Sports Leaders award where I completed over fifty hours of extra-curricular voluntary work. This hugely developed my leadership skills and confidence.
