About me

I am in search of an account management role within an ambitious and leading architecture or design agency. Having spent the last 2 years and 4 months working in business development in the legal sector, I recognise that I am better suited to a faster paced, creative and more dynamic environment. This allied to my personal interest in interior design and housing has led me to seek a new role working in a company which matches my passion and skill set where I can help grow the business through innovative strategies and challenge the status quo. I am a successful graduate from the University of Bristol with an LLB Law with Chemistry degree. Studying these two subjects has made me both versatile and able to adapt to law and science. I have excellent numeracy and the combination of strong analytical skills, communication skills and commercial acumen has been helpful in developing my project and account management capabilities. I enjoy the challenge of new experiences that require the application of existing skills and knowledge, whilst providing opportunity to further personal development and career progression. Various job experiences and volunteering opportunities have enabled me to deliver positive social outcomes and to build and maintain strong relationships whilst handling demanding circumstances with understanding and composure.
