Why Should We Hire You?

I have a creative and analytical mindset, with experience in creating original content, as demonstrated in my role as Charities Fair Coordinator at Durham University, where I developed engaging social media outputs, attracting hundreds of students to the fair. I always strive to improve processes, and in this position implemented the event's first feedback system. I thrive in fast-paced environments and am highly motivated to achieve the best possible results, as demonstrated in my role as Transfers and Arrivals Coordinator at Lacunza Escuela Internacional, where a smooth service delivery every week required determination, problem solving skills and a sharp attention to detail. My highly developed interpersonal skills were evident when working with colleagues to ensure the weekly Arrivals Day was always an outstanding success and exceptional customer service was delivered. I also displayed an excellent working proficiency in Microsoft Office and was responsible for the translation of official documents, emails and leaflets from Spanish into English. I am a quick and willing learner, as shown during my role at WaterAid, where I rapidly familiarised myself with the CRM database to conduct targeted research and identify prospects for the organisation's winter appeal. In previous work experience, I have demonstrated exceptional communication skills, which combined with my dynamism and creativity, I believe would enable me to work successfully in an internship position with your company.
