Marcus Lopes Pereira

Meeting Coordinator

About me

My name is Marcus Manock Lopes Pereira. I have a Bachelor of Social Science Degree majoring in Organisational Psychology, Psychology and film from the University of Cape Town (South Africa), the leading university in Africa. I have also recently completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Management, specialising in Marketing, through the University of Cape Town. Having kept up an excellent academic and part time work record throughout my schooling career, I consider myself to be persevering, hardworking and ambitious. I moved to London at the end of January and I am currently working as a meeting coordinator at Vat IT. My studies in Organisational Psychology is also equivalent to a CIPD qualification. I have worked part-time in various jobs while studying, which has enabled me to gain some experience in communicating and dealing with people, as well as giving me various useful skills. I am a people person with a warm, empathetic yet assertive personality. Being a quick learner and highly adaptable, I pride myself in striving for excellence at all times. I am a prudent, conscientious and dedicated person that always tries of my best. Not having much experience in the field makes me more eager to learn and acquire these respective skills. However, I do have the theoretical knowledge. I have strong IT skills having used Word, Excel, PowerPoint continuously throughout the years as well as having done a course in Information Systems at the University of Cape Town and using Google docs throughout university. I am a very social person all round and have made use of nearly all social media applications such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin etc. Having my postgraduate diploma and bachelor's as well as additional languages will make me a more diverse applicant for a Marketing position and will only aid in being more beneficial. If you knew me you would say that I am very positive, polite and energetic in everything that I do and with people I converse with. My ability to grasp information and deal with people easily enables my leadership skills to come naturally. My previous leadership roles reiterate this. Being creative and innovative, I strongly believe that I have a tremendous amount of ideas and skill to offer any organization that I may be employed with.
