My last corporate job was working for the Head of Asset Allocation and Economics at Merrill Lynch (now BlackRock) as PA / Research Assistant. I arranged all travel and meetings. I did all the PowerPoint presentations for the team and manipulated charts and other imports for the monthly and yearly research documents. I worked in this position from 2001 - 2005 when I had my son. I have been living in Cape Town, South Africa since leaving Merrill Lynch. I took three years out of corporate work to look after my children. I studied for a year and have been teaching since. I am very keen to get back into the corporate world but have the flexibility to work from home. My computer skills are still of a high standard. I am an accurate typist and work well under pressure. I am organised and have good time management.
