Over the past two years at university, I have gainedmuch valued knowledge on biomedical science. The modules which I haveundertaken as part of my degree such as Biochemistry, Physiology, and Genomicsall have helped to ratify my eagerness to work within the Biomedical Science sector.I have had a lot of Laboratory experience as part of my degree which has enabledme to work in a much more proficient manner. I have worked on many Laboratoryexperiments including performing multiple enzyme assays to measure enzymaticactivity and performing ELISA tests to identify substances such as proteins andpolypeptides. I have also carried out a lot of staining work such as stainingperipheral blood film using the Giemsa stain and using the Haematoxylin and Eosinstain to stain heart tissue.
These experiments have aided in my growth as abiomedical scientist thus so far, and have enhanced my basic analytical skills.I am now also able to confidently prepare reagents, and can set up a variety ofadvanced equipment ranging from spectrometers to monitors. Alongside my studies, I am currently working as asecurity guard for Amazon in Coalville, Leicestershire. This role has proven tobe very beneficial as it has assisted in improving my communication skills andmy interpersonal skills as I must deal with a vast number of people from manydiverse backgrounds day to day, advising and instructing them and making surethat they are safe whilst they are around the premises.
This role has alsoadapted me to working in very fast paced environments where I need to be veryobservant to my surroundings to maintain health and safety and prevent any kindof harm or danger from taking place. These are all transferrable skills which Ihave established in the industrial/security sector and can emulate in the NHSlaboratory also.In conclusion, I believe that I have the necessaryqualities, skills and the passion to thrive at NHS Warrington and Halton andthat by undertaking this position I would acquire a lot more in-depthunderstanding and expand my knowledge even greater in the discipline which is veryvital for me to mature and develop further as a Biomedical Scientist.
I wouldvalue the opportunity to show my skills in your laboratory and I am availableto contact for an interview during daytime and evening hours. I am flexible towork the expected 9am – 5:30pm hours and I am also able to participate in theother shift rotas as required.
