OC Robotics - 2008 to 2009

My placement year was with a small company that specialised in snake arm robots. I experienced a chance to perform extensive cable testing, as well as embedded programming to create my own linear encoder and to create a PHP/MySQL component tracking database system.

St John Ambulance - 2006 to present

I have taken on a large amount of management and leadership responsibilities within St John Ambulance. I have managed large scale events as a Bronze Officer running high profile first aid posts and regularly operate as radio communications officer responsible for the deployment of Emergency Ambulance and other resources throughout some large scale events. I have set up multiple new software systems to aid in the management of personnel both prior and during an event to ensure effective communication to all members. In my District Radio Communication Officer capacity I am now responsible for the safe, legal and effective use of all communications equipment in relation to St John Ambulance operations in the district of Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland. This has involved installing and maintaining a variety of VHF and UHF radio networks, overcoming black spots and communications issues potentially present at events.

Computer Confidence - 2011

Working for a small IT company has allowed be to expand my knowledge of server and computer systems. My role was primarily Linux based server administration, automating processes such as running updates and backups on a dedicated hosting platform. It also involved the customisation and PHP scripting within multiple websites, including Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), W3 code validation and social media integration (Twitter, WordPress, Facebook).
