Why Should We Hire You?

An experienced Receptionist with junior experience as a Personal Assistant to the Director of a Finance firm, I am confident in my current skill level and seek to continually grow and refine them. While working for a Finance Firm, I have maintained the highest performance standards with a diverse range of administrative duties, with scope of responsibility that includes correspondence, client and supplier relations, appointment scheduling and travel co-ordination. With experience working in a micro- Finance Firm and a recent Law Graduate, I am highly positioned for the fast-paced and high pressured environment and thrive juggling with multiple competing priorities simultaneously. As such, I have also developed excellent organisational and communication skills that have allowed me to work both independently and as part of a team. Thank you for your consideration.

Education

09/2014 - 08/2019

 United Kingdom (UK)

Law

Bachelor Degree (Undergraduate)

University of Westminster

A fantastic opportunity to study law because I was interested in pursuing a career in the legal profession. However, whilst Law is a demanding and very rewarding course to study, I came to the concrete decision that I was not passionate enough to pursue a career in the legal sector. Happily, not only has a law degree provided me with an excellent springboard into a wide range of other professions, it has also given me the tools to succeed in a high pressured and fast-paced environment. Through my analysis of case studies and other work on the course, I have become highly skilled in researching and assimilating large amounts of information and complex data. I have also developed very strong oral and written communications skills and have learnt to approach tasks in a clear, reasoned and logical way.
