Ellie's Profile

Experience Summary

I have good people skills and am able to communicate effectively with people on a variety of levels in numerous circumstances. I cope well under pressure and am rarely fazed by being confronted with new challenges. I consider myself to be very reliable and punctual. I work equally as well with others as I do working under my own steam. My biggest achievement to date is starting up my own business. I have developed an innovative new equestrian product which I have recently brought to market. My interests include socialising with friends and family, travelling both at home and abroad, reading and competing at a national level riding show horses at events such as the Royal International Horse Show and Horse of the Year Show.
