About me

I am confident in my ability to problem solve, and perform under pressure. Great team player and great at working independently, skills acquired from both retail and freelance work, also gaining time management skills and planning skills from my freelance career. Very capable of juggling multiple jobs at once, while still keeping to a professional standard. Throughout my time at university, studying a BA degree in Illustration, I gained many skills that would make me an asset. I managed projects both individually and within a team, kept strong communication with relevant parties and made sure to work efficiently and productively towards a deadline. Perfecting skills in photoshop, illustrator and indesign, with a good knowledge of other ADOBE suite products. As well as honing my skills in photography and presenting ideas and projects to a group of individuals successfully. My job history ranges from retail experience, and freelance experience, giving me skills in managing a team to being and individual on a project. Through my freelance career, continuing over 8 years, I’ve handled commissions and projects to a high standard, keeping in constant contact with clients to meet their expectations and keeping to the briefs they have outlined for me, as well as meeting deadlines with occasional revisions. I’ve also had the experience of handling finances when it comes to invoicing a client and handling payments. My retail experience, as a team leader, has let me coordinate a team of employees through their shifts, arranging overtime and holiday planning, and making sure my team knew exactly what was expected of them on the shift and what they would need to accomplish by the end. I am proficient in opening and closing routines for a retail branch, including start and end of day cash procedures, opening and closing systems.
