Look at all the things I have done...
I have always been a computer nerd, at 15 I decided I wanted to be a web designer, I'm not too sure what happened at college but I ended up doing a degree in Human Biosciences, oh dear... Anyway, I got back on track after completing Masters degree in IT. Now I am a Web Developer.
Work Experience and Education
Esos Ltd February 2016 - Present
Temporary Web Developer
Tri.x September 2015 - February 2016
I was working with Tri.x (now part of Signis Group) on a temporary contract until I had installed the new website template I built for my university project that they can use across their 200 procedure manuals. This included a full redesign of their layout, more accessibility options, a responsive mobile-friendly design and a centralized database of links used throughout their websites maintained with a custom CMS I built in PHP/MySQL.
Information Technology MSc 2014 - 2015
Tri.x October 2013 - September 2014
Tri.x (now part of Signis Group) creates online procedure manuals for local authorities, safeguarding boards, independent providers and national agencies. I updated and created these online manuals and formatted them to Tri.x standards using custom content developed by Tri.x authors. I also introduced new ways of speeding up the process of updating and creating manuals and I also installed an online forum.
The Bridge April 2012 - November 2012
The Bridge runs programmes for university graduates to enable them to get the experience they need to get into work. I made changes to main website using the SquareSpace platform through HTML and CSS. I customised the facebook page by creating facebook apps. I created leaflets, booklets and other documentation. I edited promotional videos in Premier Pro and designed graphics in Fireworks/Photoshop.
