Jessica's Profile

Experience Summary

I am a recent Education Studies and Physical Education graduate with a 1st class honours degree from Liverpool John Moore University. I have a bubbly and lively personality, yet I am still able to retain a high level of maturity and professionalism. I am exceptionally hard working and I will always strive to achieve above goals which have been set. I consider myself to be a very confident, quick and willing learner with a friendly, well-mannered, positive attitude. I believe I have the ability to drive a brand forward whilst being a great asset to any team. Alongside my studies I worked part time at a well-established sales promotion company ‘Link Communication’ and also a students promotion company 'Cool It Liverpool'. These two casual jobs have allowed me to develop my communication skills and the ability to easily adapt and handle fast paced or stressful situations. For Link Communication I worked primarily as the team leader/ tour manager which involved me organising and working with a minimum of four brand ambassador’s during vast amounts of product sampling, product demonstration and experimental marketing campaigns. This team-leading role required huge amounts of trust and organisational skills which was delivered provided due to my structured and trustworthy nature. I believe that I will demonstrate loyalty to any brand I work for and be an assist to strong team within promotions. I am currently living in Perth, Australia for a year on a 417 Working Holiday Visa from England. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
