I am a highly motivated worker with a positive personality and a lot of energy. Throughout my varied work experiences, from skilled barista to representing award winning e-commerce company liGo electronics Ltd (part of AR1 Ltd group) I have been in positions which required a combination of varied skills. I am proactive and can adapt easily so I was able to quickly learn new skills and improve the ones I already had. As Executive Assistant to the CEO of AR1 Ltd I was wearing many hats and had to manage varied tasks with competing deadlines. I have greatly developed my organisational skills and learnt to prioritize to allow effective multi-tasking. For this role I was very happy to have autonomy in my work and be able to show initiative but I was also very happy to work with the team and make sure everybody had everything they needed to stay on track of time and budget. I developed strong communication skills working in hospitality for several years. The most valuable experience for me was at citizenM hotel where the staff is selected based purely on their personality and friendliness. I continued to improve both written and verbal communication skills as a curator for Mygodshot: a big part of my work was to start and maintain great relationships with designers and artisans that we wanted to feature in our online shop or blog. I was able to build a strong list of over 40 partners and 160 products to launch Mygodshot online shop, with at the time only a fast growing Instagram page to support our project. I really enjoy working in a creative environment. It is a pleasure for me to take part and facilitate creativity.
