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

Since joining St John Ambulance I have undertaken management and leadership responsibilities including that of front line Duty Management ensuring the welfare of my team and the general public in situations involving their health and safety. I have managed large scale events which required a medical team presence, being the Bronze Officer responsible for the emergency dispatch of all vehicles and a high profile first aid post. I have also designed, programmed and operate the local Surrey LINKS website in which I have embedded implement solutions to improve the usability of the data.

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).

Magna Parva - 2011 to present
