All about me! 

Name:  Steve

Nationality: British.

Languages: English but I am learning Welsh and German. 

Travel experiences: Australia, America, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Greece, France and Ireland. 

Three fun facts about me:

  1. I’m a song writer.
  2. I like hiking, my favourite place to go is the Brecon Beacons.
  3. One day I would love to move to Germany.

Life at Celtic English Academy.

Job Role: Finance and Marketing Assistant.

Background:  I heard of Celtic English Academy through friends in the poetry circuit! I had lots of experience in the third sector and transferred my skills to the role in Celtic. 

Typical week at Celtic: I am the person people go to process payments and audit accounts throughout the week. Students often visits me to discuss bookings and admissions. 

Where you will find me: I can be found on the top floor in the main building in the Finance Department.

Favourite part of my job: I most enjoy international communications. I like building relationships with our agencies across the world.

Favourite part about working in Cardiff: everywhere you need to go is in walking distance!

Best moment at Celtic: I have had lots of lovely moments at Celtic. I think the best thing is when students make progress. For example, seeing the impact of our IELTS classes; when learners arrive and struggle to speak and then they finish speaking fluently with a place in a UK University.  Also, when I meet big Manic Street Preachers fans from Japan!
