About me


I am an Entertainment Management Graduate from Leeds Beckett University looking for work within the entertainment industry, I have worked in events, radio and nightclubs and hope to explore other parts of the entertainment industry. During my time at university I studied HR and Artist Management and I would love to get some experience within this sector as I feel I have the right communication and time keeping skills to be successful in this role. I have a huge passion for events particularly music events I like to go to concerts and gigs as much as possible and hope to go to a festival this year. . I am hard working and reliable and can work well as part as a team as well as on my own initiative. I have very good social skills and am confident talking to people I don’t know. I am very organised and I am always on time. I have a positive attitude whilst I am working and like to get a job completed to a high standard. I am a very friendly and approachable person and like to make a good professional relationship with all my colleagues.
