I am extremely reliable and my attendance for the 5 years at secondary school was 100% and in 11 years of employment I have only had 2 days off for sickness.
For the past 11 years I have worked for a large firm of Solicitors in both the residential and commercial property departments as a personal assistant and paralegal.
I have the ability to work under pressure and I remain calm under pressure, prioritising in which order tasks need to be done in order to meet deadlines which has been an essential attribute to working within a legal environment where courts have been involved. I also understand the importance of, and abide by, confidentiality.
One of my main skills is audio typing which has been one of my main duties in employment and I can type approximately 90 words a minute. In addition to this, as I am a paralegal a lot of my role has been to draft letters, deeds, documents, forms, etc using my own initiative and without instructions from the fee earner (lawyer). I therefore also possess up to date IT skills and am very competent in all Microsoft Office programmes.
To sum up my employment skills, I am an experienced, confident young professional who is keen to persist in my self-development for my future.
Outside of work I enjoy various hobbies including cycling, swimming, walking and reading. Living in Cornwall has lots of perks and I take advantage of the many cycle tracks, nature trails and beaches come rain or shine.
I have a sunny disposition and am easy to get along with and I look forward to meeting new people.
