PERSON A
L STATEMENT

I am an enthusiastic individual with three years of working experience as a Landscape Architect and a
focus to work in a demanding and progressive role to conserve wildlife and Landscape. As a
Landscape Architect I have developed strong communication, design and project management skills.
However it is the practical elements of my working career within landscape, wildlife and community
projects along with conservation volunteer roles in my personal time that have fuelled my ambition to
steer my career into a conservation role. I am an enthusiastic individual whom acclimatises well into a
diversity of environments, with a responsive and positive attitude. In the work place I enjoy working
within a team or as an individual in a relaxed and reliable manner.
