Tania Catherine's Profile

Experience Summary

I have a degree in Linguistics. I spent almost 17 years travelling around the world by motorcycle and sailing boat, including sailing across the Atlantic.I have spent the last 22 years doing promotions work, including supervisory positions as team leader and EM. I am proactive and enthusiastic, punctual, reliable organised and honest and always gain good reports from the managers where I work and the agencies I work for. I also know the value of keeping both client and agency informed. In 22 years I have never missed a single day’s booked work. I have excellent IT skills as well as being fluent in French and Spanish. I am based between Leicester and Northampton but also cover Milton Keynes/MK postcode area, Warwickshire (CV), Huntingdon, Kettering, Wellingborough, Bedford, some PE postcodes, NEC, Birmingham and many more locations with agreed travel contribution.
