Emma Rabbitte



Cork, Ireland

I am a hard-working, reliable and self-motivated individual. Thanks to my previous roles in hospitality and retail, I have become an efficient worker who is very capable of working under pressure and am flexible – I am used to working late at night as well as early morning. Being from a family business background, I am well accustomed to high standards of customer service. I would be considered an enthusiastic, patient and creative person who learns quickly and is always willing to undergo any further training. I am very capable of working within a team, or as an individual with high standards of communication and customer care. I hold a full driver’s license.

I am a student in University College Cork studying Early Years and Childhood Studies, and have partaken in psychology, social science and education modules. Thanks to this degree I have completed three months work placement in an early years setting to which I saw myself gain huge responsibility and teamworking skills.
