Experience Summary

I am 28 years old, originally from Bournemouth. I thrive on interaction and I am comfortable dealing with people from different walks of life. I am not afraid of challenges and I am a quick learner, I am highly disciplined, and enjoy learning new things. Due to past experiences I consider myself to be a diverse, motivated individual. I am loyal, trustworthy and I believe that both commitment and integrity are essential in business and social lives. EMPLOYMENT HISTORY: 1999 to Present; Promotional Representative, Model and Presenter: For ten years I have worked within the promotional industry representing a selection of different companies that provide an array of varied products. As well as a photographic model, I have acted as a brand ambassador, team leader and event manager. Some of my briefs have required that I am responsible for the smooth running of campaigns; solving any problems, interaction with the public at both corporate and commercial events and the organisation of teams which includes travelling and uniform distribution. I have organized corporate hospitality and been hostesses at various events. Whilst working full time I still enjoyed working for long standing clients and continue to do so. Along with working on short events and one off clients within various sectors of the promotion and Motorsport industry, I work for various racetracks as a team leader for their corporate and gift days. As I work for Brands Hatch on a regular basis and have been a Grid Girl for the duration of my career I also organise a team of grid girls for the main events held there. I am the face of NGK so therefore work at all the shows and exhibitions we exhibit at, as well as travelling around the country to various garages promoting our loyalty scheme. Recently I have been on tour with Bridgestone Tyres promoting driver awareness and have just completed the Animal Relentless Bike Tour, sampling Relentless to the public. Due to the nature of this work I am outgoing and a confidant communicator. I am diverse in the fact that I understand how different companies need to be promoted and represented and can adapt myself accordingly. I am used to travelling and staying away from home so am therefore independent and self-sufficient.

My responsibilities included the booking of flights, accommodation, writing to various companies, tracks and event organisers to obtain accreditation, passes and visas, along with all the other requirements needed by their team of six photographers whilst abroad. I was PA to Keith Sutton the Director of Sutton Images, so was therefore the first point of call to anyone wishing to speak or meet with Keith and I also dealt with all of Keith’s paperwork. As well as general office tasks including ordering photographers uniform. I liased with the accountant documenting all outgoings, confirming credit card payments and expenses. August 2004 to April 2007; Barnes Independent Financial Advice: Whilst working for BIFA I progressed from administration assistant, to office manager/PA.

I ensured that the daily running of the office was successful and productive, organised the staff and principal’s day whilst overseeing the maintenance of compliance regulations.

From my time at BIFA I developed a number of key skills; I am computer literate in Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and Outlook) and confident using the Internet and sending emails. I have a good telephone manner and I am able to work within a team or alone if required.
