I am Italian and I have lived in London for more than four years and I am loving it. I can speak fluently three languages (Italian, English and Greek) and I speak very well other two (Spanish and French), plus I have a basic knowledge of two more languages (Russian and German). I have a multicultural character and I have always been interested and curious about other nationalities and cultures. I have lived in few places in Europe and I do get to travel a lot around the world. I am a great team player and always with a ready to help attitude. I am very good in socialising and in creating good job relationships with my colleagues. I have been working mostly in Fashion and in the big distribution both as a sales support and in operations. I have also run a Marketing and blogging project for the current company I work for which had a great success and where I managed to get in touch with very famous bloggers and to wear some of the shoes we sell. I have experience also as a PA for the Ministry of Economy and development in Greece and also a huge experience in tourism. This shows my adaptability to serveral jobs and the open mentality to work with a multicultural environment. My managers have always described me as a person with the best work ethic and very knowledgable. Also, I have been able to create great relationships with the customers I have managed so far.
