Experience Summary

I have been an EM on several campaigns now for different companies, in all types of varied work, and fully enjoy the challenge. But in saying that i am more than happy to also work as part of a team as a BA, or work alone. I am a very motivated and organised person. I think you have to be to work in this area. My interests are gaining more knowledge of the industry. I also enjoy organising myself for a full day out with varied tasks if necessary. I also work as a distributor for UTILITY WAREHOUSE DISCOUNT CLUB, saving people money on normal bills. In my spare time I enjoy fund raising, working voluntarily in our local Air Ambulance shop. I also attend Ashby and Coalville Lions, which is a national support group, supporting local community fundraising. I have walked the Sinai Desert, fundraising for children with Cerebral Palsy, fund raised for Chemotherapy units, Hospices, cancer research and Bhf. I also worked abroad in September 2010 volunteering with the Street Children of Marrakech, this was a really worthwhile trip, where i learnt a lot, and gained a lot of local knowledge, and sharing ideas with the other volunteers for best practice. I also like to flower arrange, and enjoy cooking. Travel is also high on my list. My family is grown up therefore I am able to travel away as and when required. This is also useful in keeping in touch with learning new and varied tasks involved with promotional work. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
