My background has involved driving and implementing developments of new product label and packaging projects, coordinating collateral for new store openings and press events, as well as developing strong relationships and successfully negotiating prices. Whilst I enjoy my current role, I am ready for a new challenge and the specification of this job is exactly what I am looking for. Having had a multinational upbringing, having lived in Hong Kong, Sweden and England, I am able to adapt and relate to different cultures, customs and settings. I am always inspired by my environment and I am quick at taking the initiative and relish the opportunities and excitement of new challenges. I am a driven and positive person who enjoys working within a team, but also have the tenacity and sense of purpose to step out on my own when so required. Within my current role, I work regularly with different departments and take pride in my ability to build positive rapport within each team. Taking the responsibility to over see projects through from conception to delivery is where I derive most satisfaction. With my strong marketing experience and relationship building skills I believe I can bring a lot to the table for this position and get positive results immediately. I am very keen to progress and develop my career within marketing and feel I have the skills and enthusiasm required to succeed and to build this into a success.
