Although I'm looking to do a wide variety of work, I love to proofread, edit, and translate. I have experience of proofreading, translation, research, and performing a range of administrative tasks.
I plan to study more in the future, but in the interim I've worked full-time, part-time, and freelance. It's not easy to find a full-time job through "traditional" channels as a young graduate in the London job market, and I've found that freelancing is simply what suits me best. I've developed an array of skills and I'm always looking to learn more.
