Two years ago, I took the opportunity to teach myself how to code and I now find myself eager to embark on a new career. My self-led coding education has given me a basic technical understanding of how digital products are designed, developed, and used, as well as the product development life cycle.
I enjoy the challenge of overcoming seemingly impossible obstacles and finding new, innovative solutions. This personal growth has fuelled a goal to transition my career to digital – and specifically, to work in a fast-paced, ‘user-first’ environment where I can thrive using my diverse strengths and talents.
Having also spent ten years in the hospitality industry in a variety of team and leadership roles, I have developed a strong ‘customer-first’ mindset, alongside excellent organisational, verbal, and written communication skills.
It is this mix of skills, experience and personal attributes that makes me an ideal candidate for a junior role in digital.
As of today, I have enough of an understanding of the fundamentals of building a full-stack, working application to become a successful junior developer. I pick up new concepts and ideas quickly and am a motivated self-starter, having spent the last two years successfully working autonomously. I’m a sociable people person, who works well with others, both as part of a team and in a leadership role. I’m looking for a workplace and team with whom I can flourish, within a forward-thinking organisation who is as invested in my development as I am in theirs.
A full stack, CRUD application used for booking desks in a workplace, built with node, express, bootstrap and EJS.
