Graduate - Georgia Ramsey
My greatest passion is to have a successful career within the event industry. I started this journey from a young age when I indulged myself in the international events my father would facilitate, including extreme sporting events and festivals. Once I had finished my GCSES I carried on this process by studying Travel, Tourism and Events at Burnley College then committing further by recently finishing the Events Management BA (Honours) Course at Manchester Metropolitan University. Whilst at University I took part in extracurricular activities to further my knowledge and gain a wider range of experience from attending and volunteering at many events over the three years.
As a recent Event Management graduate, my goal is to work within a growing and successful events organisation. I am a confident, friendly and positive person who, through past experience, both voluntary and paid, has gained a wealth of experience and knowledge which I feel is transferrable to many different industries of work. I am eager to develop these skills whilst working with different teams and people. I am enthusiastic, well organised and can adapt to complete tasks that are given. I am always reliable, punctual and my helpful nature would naturally suit the roles/responsibilities of this position.
