I endeavour to enhance my previous experiences and gain more knowledge in a demanding and creative environment. I have an extensive amount of experience working in fast-paced environments and I have proven myself to be extremely adaptable in new surroundings. I have a strong background of working and participating within the arts, growing up as a key member of Playbox Theatre (where I also worked) continuing this love with actor training at PPA in Guildford, therefore being involved in creative atmospheres inspire me a great deal and I long to explore the varying role's even if these are new to me. I have developed excellent administration skills through my working life; specifically within my current role where I have been giving admin support to our Senior Management Team along with our Venue Administrator.

Writing up show contracts, event sheets, communicating with the visiting company before and upon arrival are all vital components of my role here. I am the hub of the venue as mostly all external and internal enquiries come through me first, either via phone, email or in person. All of my previous jobs have required taking telephone calls in which I have grown an excellent professional manner whilst talking to clients and customers at every level.
