    Stuck forStaff Tender service was exactly what I was looking for. I needed to find staff for a national roadshow with a very short lead time. Within hours I had secured the personnel needed for my activity.

Experience Summary

I am a lively outgoing person who loves socially interacting with others. I have been in the promotional industry for 10 years as a BA, Team Leader and Event Manager. I have done promotional work full time previously and am currently doing it alongside my full time career as an EMEA Event Manager in house for a Technology Company. I enjoy working with people and love a challenge, responsibility and organising and ideally prefer the Team Leader and Event Manager positions and it makes a change from years of BA roles :-) In my spare time I like travelling, socialising, dancing, art and design, reading, keeping fit, rollerblading, music and DJing. My achievements to date would be my bronze medal and 2 awards I gained at college for my art and design course, going travelling, doing a skydive in New Zealand and playing in the Celebrity Soccer six match for charity :-) View my contact details, availability, and stats.

Experience

Other Experience

I have worked 5 years full time within Marketing and Events in house for various companies so also am aware of the campaigns and events from the logistic and planning side of things. I have organised my own charity events before so I do understand all the work that goes into everything. I am interested in doing more Event Manager positions and feel that I have enough experience and am mature enough to be able to work in a more Senior position, but of course I will still be happy to hear about any BA positions. I am available most weekends and can work weekdays for the right jobs, but please always run everything by me.
