Have a determination to achieve employment in interesting countryside, species or landscape management in wildlife, habitats or the environmental sectors through use of personal learning, understanding, knowledge, training and experience.
Researching, experience of setting up projects, achievable outcomes, business processes, and management skills coupled with in-field ground truth experience from running busy kitchens to voluntary groups or habitat management or improvement.
Developed, worked on and been part of community projects, businesses and voluntary groups, with both communication and physical skills contributing transferable skills gained in varied and competent positions.
