As an experienced individual having worked in many different industries, I see myself as a dedicated and self-motivated individual, I am eager to build a career within a new industry or perhaps an industry I have previously worked in whilst still being able to learn new skills in a dynamic working environment. I am someone who strives to do my best, whether working alone or in a team. I am a quick and efficient learner, a fast thinker and always up for a new challenge. I am well versed in any industry standards and have worked in various positions. I am adept to the pressures that come with working in all roles. I have had the opportunity of working with different companies learning different products, brands and building relationships with people from different industries. This has given me the skills to be able to communicate on all levels aiding me to handle relationship building with clients on a professional level. I would thrive in any position if given the opportunity to prove myself as I would love to find a position whereby there is possibility of long-term commitment.
