Taking the position of Administrator at London & Colonial was a step in a direction I was not expecting. However I have come to accept that Life takes you on necessary paths even if you don’t think so at the time. Working at L & C has given me a great confidence in my telephone manner and independce. I have become more pro-active and I’ve greatly increased my work efficiency. My duties include telephone calls, general data maintenance and sorting the post.
This is one of my biggest accomplishments and something I’m very proud of. Idle started as my final major project at University and developed into a passion and (hopefully) a life long career. So far I have released 5 issues, 3 have been printed and majority are readable online. I do everything there is to do for developing a magazine – paper sampling, scouting for new submissions, social media, emails, layout design and write 1 or 2 articles each issue. I do have some help towards the end with proof-reading but the rest is up to me. This magazine, and the many roles I have within it, has taught me great organisational skills – submission calls and deadlines and also printing deadlines. It has also taught me how to professionally contact potential stockers and photographers/ illustrators/ writers.
I started at Lush Cosmetics during my University course. Working with Lush has been such a confidence boost for me. I can happily have a chat with customers and help them find what they’re looking for in the shop. I believe in our ethics and the love Lush show to their customers and the charities we support. The position has taught me how to communicate with staff and customers under great pressure. It’s also helped me develop my teamwork skills and the ability to create a proactive environment.
