About me

I returned to London after twelve years living in Spain, where I learnt to speak the language fluently. I have gained extensive work experience in a number of roles, specialising as a receptionist, administrator and team assistant. Having worked continuously throughout my life, I have been able to adapt to any Working environment quickly and easily. I am an extremely practical, confident and professional person. I have exceptional organisation skills, telephone skills, multi-tasking skills and I do not shy from responsibility. I strive for a challenge and excel in a fast-paced working environment, always completing any assigned tasks in a professional and timely manner. I am now looking for a new position within a creative industry.
