Rachel's Profile

Experience Summary

I would describe myself as a confident and enthusiastic person who is looking to eventually retrain as a Drama teacher. For the last four years, I have worked in a sales environment where I have developed skills that are transferable to promotional work, from team-working to time management, planning and negotiating to finding creative ways to inspire get projects and activities up and running. I interact well with both adults and children, and find it easy to build a rapport with people. As well as being a reliable, cheerful and conscientious worker, I am considerate and work well in a team. I am also an excellent communicator and have the ability to adapt to any situation.

Other Experience

My eventual aim is to become a drama teacher which I believe fits well within the promotional world. Although I have not done any promo work in 3 and half years, I have be working in the media industry where a lot of the skills I have learnt are transferable.
