A proactive, highly organised and enthusiastic individual with the ability to provide an articulate, effective work ethic, who has recently graduated from the University of Lincoln with a First Class BA (Hons) Media Production degree. Possessing a competent, dedicated disposition, and the confidence to multi-task comprehensively, actively seeking employment as an Office Assistant.
Working behind the bar part time. Involves excellent people skills, money handling, problem solving and time management.
Working for one day as a runner on Flog It, providing a friendly, enthusiastic experience for the public who turned up on the day to have items valued. I ensured the seating system was adhered to, and monitored the fluidity of crowd movement across the Minster. Other responsibilities included supplying refreshments to the off screen experts and research area, as well as answering questions/queries. I was also entrusted to wrap and log antiques for auction, taking pictures and labelling the items correctly.
During part of my time there, I took over some of my supervisor’s responsibilities while she was absent. This included answering/connecting calls, and using initiative and excellent communication skills to complete client objectives and email correspondences. I also offered general assistance to the office, as well as the CEO, COO and director of the company. Interaction and liaising with different seniority levels is something I am comfortable with. I was able to utilise my impeccable organisational skills with duties involving list taking, office upkeep and maintaining a schedule. There were several occasions where I was involved in high-pressure situations. One of which involved applying my IT skills by sourcing material from the company network in order to meet a deadline for a client.
I worked in the comedy/entertainment department. I assisted the runners and other team members by performing office duties: sorting DVD’s and their labels, assisting the development team, collecting paperwork from the printer, and minor researching jobs. During my time here, I experienced street casting, which again allowed me speak to a wide variety of people, demonstrating communication skills and impeccable manners.

Worked on a filming day at St George’s Park in order to create a video for the FA Respect Campaign, which was aired at Wembley Arena.

The role required immaculate people skills, as well as listening to and carrying out instructions.
