I work as the PA of the logistics assistant and my roles include: organising and updating managers diaries and personal schedules including the Managing Directors, creating and placing purchase orders, making use of all office machinery and up to date office software, answering the phones and dealing with the calls then directing them to the appropriate departments, greeting customers upon their arrival to the premises. I also plan company events such as charity days and Christmas parties, I draft letters and memos for departments and also confirming staff holidays and organising them into the year planners.
I worked part time as a shop assistant for Next from September 2013 to June 2014. This role provided me with retail experience, and worthwhile experience with direct customer services. I learnt what it meant to represent a brand and also learned to construct and organise my time well whilst balancing my first ear of university with this job. I achieved four and five star scores in each of my tri-monthly reviews.
