About me

I’m a highly competent, motivated and enthusiastic individual, with experience of working as part of a team and independently. Well organised and proactive in providing timely, efficient and accurate support to managers and work colleagues. I am approachable, well presented and able to establish good working relationships with a range of different people. Since November 2012, I have been working as an accounts payable clerk, but was made redundant March 2018. I decided to take this opportunity to finally follow my dreams of getting into the creative industry. I have a foundation degree in Textiles and Fashion and wish to put this to good use. I also have an interest in literacy, so creative writing is another string I wouldn't mind adding to my creative bow
