Personal Statement:

I’m an outgoing and energetic guy from London, England and I’m in Australia on a 1-year working holiday. I arrived in Sydney at the start of January and will be in town for six months (until July 2011) before continuing my travels up the East Coast. I’m renting an apartment in Ultimo and am looking for a full time job that will allow me to work hard, learn new skills and meet new people. I have completed my RSA and White Card course and I’m looking forward to starting work straight away.
