Claire's Profile

Experience Summary

I have worked for six years as a technology product demonstrator, event supervisor, team leader, food & drinks sampler, merchandiser, makeup salesperson/demonstrator, character worker, storyteller and corporate hospitality worker. The skills I acquired at media school have stood me in good stead for promotional work especially the verbal and written communication skills required during sales and audit work, and the team skills needed for large campaigns involving a number of people. Approachable and reliable, I am organised and efficient and enjoy the variety of work the promotional industry provides. I have a full clean driving licence and have driven large transit vans on various campaigns. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
