I am an English native and have recently graduated from the University of Manchester, UK with an
MA in Translation and Interpreting Studies focusing on translation FR>EN and DE>EN across a variety of text types. I am also fluent in Swedish. I graduated from the
University of Hull with a 2:1 BA (Hons) degree in Combined Languages (French,
German and Swedish). I was one of the first ten students to study a three-language
degree in the UK, and the very first to study the above language combination.
I have communicated cross-culturally, using my foreign language skills,
throughout my career. I have communicated verbally and in writing in the native
languages of the internal and external customers, and suppliers linked to some
of the largest multinational companies, working in various departments: financial
accounting, and internal audit (AstraZeneca UK Ltd), human resources (Marks and
Spencer plc UK), supply chain management and technical support (Intel
Corporation UK Ltd.), and as an executive assistant providing administrative support
(Honeywell Control Systems UK Ltd.).
Having worked extensively as a Project Manager, I have enjoyed many opportunities
to work in Europe e.g. at AstraZeneca, Paris when I worked alongside the
financial accounting department to develop, change, optimise and train French
colleagues in new standard operating procedures on SAP for the Purchase to Pay cycle
as a result of transactional operations moving to a shared financial service centre
At Intel, I worked in both European head offices: in Swindon, UK, and in
Munich, Germany where I communicated with German speaking customers on a daily
basis to update them on the fulfilment of their orders and to discuss any
supply chain issues with them on behalf of the German speaking salesforce.
I am also a qualified teacher and I offer private tuition in French and German GCSE and A-Levels. As a qualified primary school teacher, I also offer private tuition for KS2 i.e. years 3-6.
