For the last 3 years I have worked within two luxury establishments, Agent Provocateur and Harrods. This has meant representing two brands with extremely high values and serving clients whom have large budgets and sometimes this has equalled challenging demands. Not only have I been studying for 7 years within the creative sectors, I have maintained working between full and part time to help fund my artist practice and to keep pushing myself to a level of potential. When this meant 7 days a week, I saw this as a chance of growth and really saw my dedication flourish. This was not to the detriment of my studies, which I saw in recent months gained me a first class honours. Now I have graduated, I am seeking full time employment in a company which can enhance my skill set and utilise the experience I have already and I feel that I could transition into very naturally and with confidence with any creative role.Locked Pro Plan feature
