I'm aware of the importance of strong interpersonal skills and good customer service. I am happy working alone or as a team. My role within a team is usually the strong silent (ish) type as opposed to the loud and proud type. On saying that I have been a Twentys Holiday Representative, have performed as a costume character and I am happy to work as a TV Extra thus demonstrating I am willing and able to adapt.
