I graduated with a BA Hons 2.1 in Festival and Events management last June and have since done freelance work for Barr Soft drinks running and managing sampling stands and staff for promotional events such as Royal Highland Show. I then worked within the Sales department at Barrs until recently, now looking to get back into events and gain experience everywhere and anywhere I can.
I am a quick learner and am willing to try my hand at anything, I work well under pressure and always to a high standard. I have alot of customer service experience and consider myself to be organised but also extremely adaptable to change which is vital within events.
