I have over 2 years working within a design research focused gallery environment, having interned at RMIT Design Hub before undertaking a role as Exhibition Assistant, with a period working as Acting Creative Producer within the institution. I have a strong interest in contemporary art and design. Having completed a Bachelor of Design (Fashion) with Honours in 2012, I have a strong grounding in fashion and design, with experience as a shoemaker. I have over 5 years experience within Retail and Customer Service roles, with over 3 years experience in Women’s footwear retail. Recently, I worked as a Retail Sales Assistant at shoe retailer Zomp’s flagship Melbourne store, providing exceptional, attentive service and relating to and helping a wide range of customers, including regular customers. Zomp stocks a wide variety of Women’s shoes including European-made, luxury footwear brands, Alberto Fasciani, Elena Iachi, MOMA, Officine Creative and Silvano Sassetti. Within this role I undertook higher duties, acting as Store Manager and engaging in tasks such as complaints handling and communications with higher management. As such, I have developed exceptional interpersonal, communication and conflict resolution skills. I am a keen, fast learner and take great pleasure in establishing a rapport with customers
