CV

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

  • Junior Webdeveloper

    Esos Ltd    February 2016 - Present

    I am a Web Developer for ESOS, part of Pertemps Recruitment. I am responsible for the development and maintenance of websites across the Pertemps Network. I do a mixture of front-end (HTML, CSS, JavaScript/JQuery) and back-end (Razor, C#.net) development using Umbraco CMS.

  • 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.

I also introduced new ways of speeding up the process of updating and creating manuals and I also installed an online forum.
