About Tom Thornton:

Hello, I'm Thomas Thornton, a recent graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Quantity Surveying from Liverpool John Moores University. I'm on a journey to establish myself in the professional world and build a career in my chosen field. My academic journey has been marked by dedication and hard work, resulting in the achievement of a 2:1 grade, accredited by RICS.

I pride myself on being an entrepreneurial and self-motivated individual. Throughout my educational journey, I've honed my problem-solving skills, particularly in surveying-related challenges, such as planning applications and building regulations. My ability to think critically and tackle complex issues has been cultivated through case studies and project briefs.

One of my significant accomplishments is my participation in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, where I successfully completed the bronze, silver, and gold levels, reflecting my commitment and determination. Additionally, I hold three Google Career certificates in digital marketing and e-commerce, showcasing my continuous pursuit of knowledge and expertise.

In the sports arena, I'm not just a Quantity Surveyor; I'm also a qualified Football Association referee, and I've been an integral part of successful rugby teams. My involvement with Mansfield RC, especially our Under 16s team's victory in the NDL cup, is a testament to my teamwork and leadership abilities.

Outside of academics and sports, I'm a young entrepreneur with a keen eye for business opportunities. I started my T-shirt printing business, 'ShopLikeBreezy,' which has already seen success with over 500 T-shirts and hoodies sold across multiple platforms. I'm also part of the 'LJMU Founders Project,' where I have the opportunity to present my business concepts and receive grants if successful.

I'm passionate about staying active and fit, which is why I regularly engage in activities like running, hitting the gym, and boxing. Music is another love of mine; I enjoy attending concerts and even create my own music using music software when I find the time.

My diverse work experience, from construction recruitment to serving VIP customers at Chester Racecourse, has equipped me with strong communication and interpersonal skills. I've also worked as a bar staff member and a sales assistant, demonstrating my ability to provide excellent customer service and make recommendations effectively.

I've always been open to learning and research, evident in my final year dissertation exploring sustainable procurement in the UK construction sector. I take pride in my attention to detail and dedication to gathering and evaluating information effectively.

In summary, I am a dedicated, results-oriented individual with a wide range of skills, from problem-solving and surveying to entrepreneurship and customer service. I'm excited about the opportunities that lie ahead in my professional journey and am eager to contribute my skills and passion to any endeavor I undertake.
