  • BSc Equine Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation with first class honours graduate from the University of Greenwich

  • Experience with a variety of horses
  • Communication skills with colleagues and clients
  • Highly organised

  • Adaptable to new situations


Strengths and Weaknesses

  • I enjoy the variety – no two days are the same and not a day has gone by in the past 5 years where I haven’t learnt something new.


  • My biggest weakness is sometimes not being able to ask for help when it would be in my best interests. I also have a desire to consistently deliver very high standards which can occasionally result in disappointment.


  • I am able to offer an all-round, professional, dedicated skillset derived from working in both the equine industry and retail. It gives me a high level of adaptability and interpersonal skills which mean I can work efficiently within many tasks and achieve consistent good results.



• I would like to improve my working knowledge and experience within the rehab centre to build on my academic achievements.


• Accommodation would be ideal but is not 100% necessary providing there is easy access to local towns/villages that I could find a property to rent.


• Space for one well behaved pony would be ideal, or working hours that allow for keeping him on DIY elsewhere.


• Commitments – University – exams finish mid may


• Holidays – 1 week mid August, plus my graduation date in July (TBC)
