Elena Alonso Herrera

Assistant Area Manager - Sales Dept.London, United Kingdom
About me
I'm a bilingual Spanish / Catalan and English linguist based in London. During my career, I’ve been driven by my eagerness for new challenges, developing myself within diverse work environments. I've been working in industries ranging from retail to travel, playing an important role in sales, purchasing and content marketing departments. In this same manner, I'm used to working alongside senior managers contributing to each role with ways to boost results and efficiency. To accomplish this, I focus on time management strategies. Luckily, I'm obsessed with organisation – If you want to optimise your day to day, you come to me! There aren't many things that can grow a company the way engagement and attention to detail can, and I pride myself in being so dedicated to both.

    ERASMUSUniversity of Bristol
     - Bristol, United Kingdom
    Thanks to an Erasmus Programme, I had the enriching opportunity to study my third year of English Studies in the renowned University of Bristol, England. The topics covered in this course included: American History, Culture and Literature of different periods. I also enrolled in a course on Business English that gave me the knowledge and resources to succeed in business environments within international contexts. Throughout this year, I also grew in a personal level, getting immersed within the English lifestyle. I got to meet incredible people from all around the world, with different cultures and backgrounds. Bristol is a highly intercultural city and this experience helped me to discover my passion and identify the career I wanted to pursue.
