About me

Hello, I am looking for a challenging and dynamic role within an organisation where I can begin to work towards fulfilling my aspiration to become a Creative Director. I am a highly creative and organised individual with experience in Marketing, Creative Direction, Graphic Design and Illustration, Events (which I studied at University) and Customer Service with strong skills in all the above. I also have skills and experience as a PA in the music industry. During this time I have developed good administrative and interpersonal skills and demonstrated a clear understanding of confidentiality, which led to me being involved in closed meetings, creating minutes and being placed in charge of handling the contact lists of high profile clients. I also have experience as a stylist in Fashion and Art Direction, for which my work appeared in DJ Mag. I currently work in retail, however within 10 months I have been trained in Visual Merchandising, I have also been given more operational and managerial tasks too, such as training new staff and daily briefing etc. This is from my hard work and dedication to any role I am in. I have learned valuable skills in team work, leadership, creativity and organisation, which I hope to bring forward to any future job. I have a vast range of skills from my experiences so far, in which I would love to talk about in more detail if the opportunity came. Overall my experience's so far in work and life have taught me how to work under pressure, meet deadlines and be adaptable to change. Whilst still valuing my own morals and my passion and drive to be a Creative Director. I would describe myself as an outgoing, confident, organised and highly motivated individual. I have a common-sense, work hard to the best of my ability and above all have passion and drive to reach my goals. I have a flexible approach to whatever role I am working in. If you are looking for someone creative, self-motivated, hard-working and reliable, please contact me.
