Lesley's Profile

Experience Summary

I'm a hard working, approachable and loyal person who enjoys promotional work and the variety of jobs and people you come into contact with. I have 5 years experience in the industry as well as 8 years fashion retail management experience and 2 years administrative in HR. I'm a musician with a touring ukulele orchestra, but between tours I work full time in promo. I've got experience as EM and Team Leader for several agencies but equally enjoy working as part of a team. I'm up for anything in terms of work, from guerilla activity on the tube to food sampling to hostessing at exclusive events. I'm a naturally smiley and friendly person and have great relationships with all the agencies I work for. I am also a qualified and insured massage therapist (on site Indian Head Massage).
