Why Should We Hire You?

I'm always proud to collaborate among a team, I have exhibited this over 6 work experiences. My placement as an Office Assistant opened up my experience into an office environment. Noteworthy tasks that I carried out included assisting the development of online and printed marketing material, researching client information, maintaining accurate records and producing sales performance reports for senior management. In my current role, I carry out daily administrative tasks (managing/organising files and risk assessments) in a retail shop. I have experience within Customer Service in three jobs as a Retail/Sales Assistant and Student Representative. This has enhanced my effective communication, creative problem solving, ability to work well under pressure, as well as holding responsibilities with money handling/deposits etc. As a netball coach for over 3 years, I exhibited team leadership, strategising and strong organisational skills. Additionally, as a recent Philosophy graduate I have strong analytical/creative thinking, adept use of usual professional software, handling a broad workload and meeting deadlines.
