April 2010 – Present : In early 2010 it became apparent that my youngest son had some severe medical problems and after various tests could offer no real explanation I took a less active role within the company to help at home. With no improvement in his condition and with him requiring operations and regular tests I stepped down as a director in April 2010 to take some time out to spend with my family and also to reassess my plans for the future . His condition is far more stable now and as such I am ready to return to work. I am very excited at the prospect of entering into a new project after quite a lengthy time out and consequently am applying for the position within your company.

July 2008 –April 2010 : Director / Contracts Manager : After leaving my previous position myself and four friends set up a facilities management company which continues to go from strength to strength. The company had 30 employees and was primarily a call centre operation. This
was by far my most challenging role . I was listed as a Director for this company and my duties involved hiring staff organising client meetings and various associated tasks.

June 2004 – July 2005 : Shop Manager : The Bed Depot , Paisley : I gained vast experience in this position as it was my first real management role. I was responsible for many different aspects such as being responsible for the shop targets and reporting directly to the Area Manager for this company. I left this role as the company was downsizing and eventually went into liquidation.
