Having completed a 3-year Business Management degree in Cardiff Metropolitan University I have looked for opportunities within the buying industry. I have always had a huge interest buying due to its fast paced nature and need for constant evolution. I am an energetic individual, in pursuit of further challenges and opportunities. I am extremely hard working, capable and conscientious whilst being familiar with both independent and team working environments. I like to set my goals high and be ambitious in all aspects. I have always had a great love of all things style and am obsessed with the industry as a whole. I enjoy having fun in and outside of work meeting new people.
