Kirsty's Profile

Experience Summary

I began working in the Promotions industry in 1999 whilst studying for my psychology degree. Nine years later and I still love the variety and flexibility of the industry, although now I have just completed an MSc in counselling psychology and work part-time as a drug and alcohol counsellor for young people. That said however, I do promote alcohol but also promote sensible drinking. Over the past nine years I have been a T.V extra, a costume character, a food sampler, product demonstrator, data capturer, mystery shopper and recently and event manager. I love doing all different kinds of work and especially love the atmosphere and energy of big shows at the N.E.C, such as the 'Good Food Show'.' When I'm not studying or promoting, I often apply for game or quiz shows and in 2006 I appeared on Deal or no Deal with Noel Edmonds and in 2002 I appeared on 'Wipeout' with the late great Bob Monkhouse. My main interests are health and fitness - I keep myself trim by going to the gym and I am also a trained dancer and amateur dramatist. I do love my food and most of my jobs have been as a food sampler. Most recently I was involved with the Sainsbury's Switch and Save campaign, which achieved a very warm wecome from customers and store managers alike and was thoroughly enjoyable!! I am also trained to NVQ level 2 in Beauty Therapy and have a wide ranging knowledge of some of the top range beauty brands including Estee Lauder, Clinique and Filgora (my favourite).
