Helen's Profile

Experience Summary

Since leaving school in 1981 I have worked in sales and retail. I left my position as retail sales represntative for Walkers Crisps to have my eldest daughter. I worked part time for CPM for Mars as sales advisor prior to the birth of my second daughter and have enjoyed tactical work since the birth of my third and most definatly last daughter. Now that my children are more independant I am looking for more challenges and would like to take on more managerial roles as well as working independantly and as part of a team. I have excellent people skills and a vast portfolio of sales experience and thus have a lot to offer. I enjoy reading, gardening, and going away in my caravan when I get the opportunity.
