Sioban's Profile

Experience Summary

I am an extremely motivated and hardworking person who has recently emigrated from Scotland and am looking for new challenges. I love promotional work as I have always been involved in jobs which involve meeting people and learning about new products. I have had many interests over the years but I have to confess that my main interests and achievements these day are my 8 and 6 year old children - any spare time I have now is spent with family and socialising with friends.
