I am currently employed on a freelance basis within the Unbloc group to administrate operations in the West of England. I report back to the head office on a regular basis and continue to maintain a long-term digital project. When I am not in Falmouth, I drop back into my admin roles working from London and/or Salisbury. Sometimes, as my duties are flexible, I can work them within my studies and other jobs.
I helped open a new store alongside my team in Truro, Cornwall. We’ve spent tireless hours tagging, hanging and organising through lots of long hours, which we were all happy to do. I really enjoy learning new skills that come with a diverse range of new products which I didn’t know much about, to begin with. I’ve had lovely customer feedback working here and it’s really built my confidence up.
I had the chance to carry out work experience in a PR Company in London, where I was placed into the ‘Consumer and Lifestyle’ department. I dealt with clients on a daily basis, and successfully liaised with the agent of client Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones, and I managed to actually generate this new client for the company. My other jobs were researching new journalists to promote products and to analyse other PR companies. I learnt vast amounts of Internet-based skills and 'business interpersonal' skills.
During my time carrying out work experience at an outdoor ‘Billboarding Company’ I witnessed a range of different working departments, like Infrastructure, Design, Marketing, Development, Sales and Posting. Commuting into London every day was also a contributing factor to developing the ability to set a plan for my journey, and my day around it.
My prior job as a part-time receptionist has enhanced my computer software skills and interpersonal relations. After branching further into sales, I was able to close a deal with potential clients into a membership at the gym. These roles have influenced my organisational and tidiness skills, as I have learnt to adapt to my surroundings quickly. Also, working with monetary transactions and problem-solving whilst booking, moving and contacting members, are more examples of the jobs I’ve learned to do.
