I have a keen eye for detail, am a quick learner, able to work on my own initiative and a reliable member of any team. I work well under pressure, achieve deadlines and can prioritise and multi-task well. I like to keep on top of my workload at all times and can mange my time effectively in a busy environment.
With a customer service background in hotels and facilities management, I have good communication skills and a positive “can-do” approach to my work, clients and colleagues. My experience in high level corporate facilities and business management means I am used to a varying workload which changes depending on the needs of the client. I was responsible for a wide variety of tasks including planning projects, managing diaries, smooth daily running of the office, producing budgets, reports, meeting minutes and presentations, setting up databases and managing filing and archiving systems.
I have strong IT skills and am used to using Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher and Outlook on a daily basis. To gain greater knowledge using formulae in spreadsheets, setting up macros and data presentation such as pivot tables, I recently attended City and Guilds level 2 intermediate and level 3 advanced courses in Excel, Word and Sage where I achieved First Class Passes.
As a person I am enthusiastic, caring, honest, loyal, trustworthy and discreet. I am a cheery person who will always look to the positive side of any challenge. I thrive on both making things happen and the attention to detail which makes a business professional.
