I've recently just turned 26 and am looking for my next career step. Due to my current company recently merging with another my team went from 5 to just me. I was therefore given the opportunity to hire my own assistant on a 3 month contract. Although it was only short term it has made me realise that at some point in the future I would like to manage and see myself as a leader.. I'm loyal and passionate and always aim to go above and beyond my set duties. I'm friendly and approachable and love to get involved in team nights out. When I'm not at work my main passion is music. I recently travelled to America for Miami Music Week and Ultra Festival. Most weekends if I'm not at a festival you'll find me at some of London's biggest nightclubs including Fabric and Ministry of Sound watching DJs from all over the world. I consider the Resident Advisor website the holy grail. I also like to travel and recently visited New York on a business trip. When all is said and done I love nothing more than spending an evening in front of the TV with family and friends. I would bring to any company determination, new ideas and the ability to deliver tasks to a high standard.
I'm the Senior Advertising Sales Coordinator in the Operations department at the number one Science publishing group in the world and the purpose of my role is to support the Vice President and his Advertising and Sponsorship teams globally. Our main offices being in London, New York and San Francisco but also include Germany, China and Japan. My responsibilities range from share of market reports, order amendments, activity reports and business systems coordination. It's a very busy environment where no two days are the same. I'm relied upon by the sales team which consists of 50+ people and there are no margins for error when targets are set in their millions. It's also important that I'm able to think on my feet and resolve problems quickly and efficiently as weekly and monthly print deadlines have to be met. I've travelled to New York to conduct training sessions over a week and have also used join.me to show presentations to colleges in China and Japan. Although difficult at times this has allowed me to practise and gain key communication skills.
As the Ward Clerk on the Emergency Short Stay Ward it was my job to admit and discharge patients using the in-house system, electronically request patient notes, update in-house system when a patients stay on the ward becomes delayed or extended, identify patients where diagnostic test had been submitted but results not received and attend morning board rounds to act as an assistant to the doctors. Working on an emergency short stay ward was a life changing experience for me and believe that this is why I am able to adapt to any situation and environment. It's such a demanding work place that you either sink or swim. I know how to show sympathy and put myself in someone else's shows to see both sides of a situation but I'm also able to apply pressure and do not shy away from following up with people at all levels of seniorities.
