About me
Newcastle university student currently looking for a placement opportunity. I’m currently aiming and on track for a 1st in my Business Management degree. I'm friendly, hardworking, and always open to new challenges and opportunities to help launch myself into the business industry and welcome any suggestions. I’m an honest and dedicated person capable of delivering a premium customer service experience. I take pride in all visual standards whether it’s presenting the workplace or myself. I’m someone to rely on as out of the 4 years I’ve been employed I have never phoned in sick or missed a shift. I deal well in high-paced environments as I’m very organised, digitally engaged, and great at problem-solving using my initiative. I have a slight shopping problem as I am a serial high-end fashion shopaholic. I often find myself spending a fortune on orders from Selfridges or YOOX to reward myself for bare minimum tasks such as washing a dish. It is a problem I recognise and I am actively working on improving it but I guarantee this addiction will only motivate me to excel and work to the best of my abilities in order to fund my problem.
