Hey there guys!
My name is Danielle and I am 21 year old traveler from Mancester, UK! :)
I am currently residing in North Cairns and I am working at a Nomads Hostel as a bar tender 3 nights a week in exchange for accommodation. I have 2 years + experience within the hospitality trade as a bar tender at a sports bar, a cocktail technician at a high volume nightclub and a trainee assistant chef within a country restaurant.
At home in the UK I was studying an National Vocational Qualification in Food and Beverage Service (Level 2) and I was also training for a personal license (NCPLH - National Certificate for a Personal License Holder) for a prospective career in bar management. These courses are currently postponed whilst I am on my travels.
I have been in Australia for just over 1 month, my working holiday visa is valid until May 2014 and I also hold a valid Queensland RSA Certificate.
My work experience to date consists of hospitality work and sales, I am able to up-sell wines and spirits to premium products, negotiate and compromise with customers and resolve customer complaints. I am able to work effectively as a team and I have a keen eye for preparation and organization when hosting events.
Despite the majority of my work experience being within hospitality, I am also looking to try something new, I am open to new ideas and experiences and I am willing to give anything a go to discover other skills and interests that I may have hidden!
As an individual, I am bright and quirky young backpacker, I am relatively tattooed (however if you wish for me to cover up then that is not a problem!). I love socializing over drinks and I have a keen hobby for cocktail mixology! I love hosting parties and 'cook-offs' with friends, playing pool and visits to the cinema. I also try to stay relatively active by going on country walks, cycling, swimming and rock climbing. I have dabbled in some modelling experiences!
My education to date is at college standard, I have 10 GCSE's including Mathematics, English Language, English Literature, Social Sciences, Graphic Design and Religious Education, grades varying from A* - C. I also have 2 A Levels in Art & Design and Media Studies.
So if you're still with me reading this, then give me a call!
