Phoebe Hockey

I am a very passionate and hardworking individual and have recently graduated from The Iver Academy, where I have learned many life changing skills and valuable experiences. I love working towards a goal and making the best of every situation. I have an exceptional customer service skills due to my past in retail and apply this relevantly to any role I take on. I love creating art in many ways, especially hair and make-up due to its fun but challenging nature.

Work Experience

I have over a year of customer facing retail work. This also includes running a small charity shop, being a key holder for this shop, locking up, cashing up and overall having significant responsibility.

I have also recently completed a short graduate film with The National Film and Television School. We worked alongside Daniel Daniel, the director, Sue Michaels who was our makeup designer and an amazing team. This was creating 18th century Hasidic Jews, giving them an overall dirty look, some prosthetics and SFX and hair work. I have received great feedback from Daniel and Sue for my work on this production.


I have completed my GCSE’s with satisfactory grades in every subject, but in particular Fine Art which I received a 9 (A**).

I have also just completed my 30 Week Advanced Certificate in Hair and Make-up Artistry.
