Hi I'm Gary
Hi, my name is Gary Small.
I'm 49 and have spent 25 years in the automotive industry. I have always had a love of wildlife and the outdoors and on my travels (before kids!) have been involved in some conservation and volunteering in South America and Iceland. I am looking to switch careers, away from the automotive world and am wanting a new role in conservation or other environmentally beneficial projects. I have many transferable skills, but no formal experience and as a consequence, my applications to new roles have not been successful. Through completing this course I am hoping to get a qualification to add to my CV that will enhance my chances of making successful applications. I hope to gain a better understanding of a new field and help in directing me towards the types of role that I am best suited to.
My love of the outdoors has taken me on many adventures - travelling, hiking long distances and up a few mountains, camping out, and on some long cycle rides too! These are all things I enjoy sharing with my children, friends and family.
I look forward to starting the course and meeting everyone.
