About me

I pride myself on being an adaptable, organised, confident and creative person. I am eager to develop a successful career within the marketing industry and I believe my personality traits and experience has given me a skills set for me to do so. Since graduating from university with a 2.1 I have been on the hunt for exciting and creative experiences. My current role at Canary Wharf PLC as a Retail Marketing Assistant has expanded my knowledge on visual merchandising, project management and retail promotions.
