About me

 

I am an adaptable and conscientious individual with strong organisational ability. I have recently completed my degree where I was able to balance my studies both with work and other commitments that required much self-motivation and efficiency. My previous work experience has given me excellent interpersonal and customer service skills that enable me to relish in an environment where I am able to work with people. I am keen to apply the various skills I have acquired throughout my work experience into a temporary or permanent role, whilst remaining open to learning new skills. I enjoy responsibility and have a professional attitude that enables me to work calmly under pressure and handle multiple duties.
