Relevant Work Experience

Freelance reporter at The Edinburgh Reporter

I have been acting as a freelance reporter at this news website covering some sport and cultural events. This has given me some real life experience as a journalist. This role has meant having to research and report on events, as well as conducting short interviews to bolster these articles.

My work for the website can be found here: http://www.theedinburghreporter.co.uk/author/sean-gordon/

Other Work Experience:

Bicycle mechanic/ Customer assistant at Cyclesmith

I acted as a customer assistant in taking in bikes for service and selling some second hand bikes and new accessories. This also involved phoning customers for bikes to be collected and giving advice where required.
