Helen Louise's Profile

Experience Summary

I am a friendly, out going and confident woman who has a wealth of experience as a team player and manager in the sales, customer service and promotions field both in and outside of the UK. My strengths are my communication and organisational skills and my relaxed ability to be able to talk to others has made my customer service & hospitality skills second nature. I love a challenge and thrive on exceeding targets which means I have initiative & self motivation in abundance!! I am a fair and flexible person who can adapt easily to any given situation with complete professionalism and most importantly always with a smile! I have worked in Italy, Ibiza & the Canary Islands as a holiday rep which led to a promotion as resort manager. I have also managed & hosted bars within holiday resorts including devising & presenting entertainment programmes to full venues. Most recently I have worked for a famous Radio 1 DJ in Ibiza as his promotions manager and then as his office based pa/guest dj liason all of which have given me the most memorable experiences I could have wished for. I am a very social person who loves to be out there meeting new people & experiencing new things but most importanly works hard at all times. View my contact details, availability, and stats.

Experience

Other Experience

Most of my experiences & skills have been gained through my full time jobs undertaken and not through agency campaigns such as those that use Stuckforstaff.com. I have had a handful of jobs in this particular industry as and when Ive returned to the UK inbetween my seasons working abroad. However I am confident I can successfully put my hand to any job/campaign offered to me!!
