Over the past two years at university, I have gained
much valued knowledge on biomedical science. The modules which I have
undertaken as part of my degree such as Biochemistry, Physiology, and Genomics
all 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 enabled
me to work in a much more proficient manner. I have worked on many Laboratory
experiments including performing multiple enzyme assays to measure enzymatic
activity and performing ELISA tests to identify substances such as proteins and
polypeptides. I have also carried out a lot of staining work such as staining
peripheral blood film using the Giemsa stain and using the Haematoxylin and Eosin
stain to stain heart tissue. These experiments have aided in my growth as a
biomedical 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 of
advanced equipment ranging from spectrometers to monitors.
Alongside my studies, I am currently working as a
security guard for Amazon in Coalville, Leicestershire. This role has proven to
be very beneficial as it has assisted in improving my communication skills and
my interpersonal skills as I must deal with a vast number of people from many
diverse backgrounds day to day, advising and instructing them and making sure
that they are safe whilst they are around the premises. This role has also
adapted me to working in very fast paced environments where I need to be very
observant to my surroundings to maintain health and safety and prevent any kind
of harm or danger from taking place. These are all transferrable skills which I
have established in the industrial/security sector and can emulate in the NHS
In conclusion, I believe that I have the necessary
qualities, skills and the passion to thrive at NHS Warrington and Halton and
that by undertaking this position I would acquire a lot more in-depth
understanding and expand my knowledge even greater in the discipline which is very
vital for me to mature and develop further as a Biomedical Scientist. I would
value the opportunity to show my skills in your laboratory and I am available
to contact for an interview during daytime and evening hours. I am flexible to
work the expected 9am – 5:30pm hours and I am also able to participate in the
other shift rotas as required.
