Personal Profile

I am an enthusiastic and creatively driven individual, with a work ethic that is second to none. I am currently studying a BA in photographic media with the aspiration to one day be a freelance film maker or photographer. I currently work at ASDA in Accrington as a sales assistant, but looking for work closer to University. I have experience with tills, customer services, stocking shelves, warehouse and working with produce. As a film maker and photographer I have gained leadership skills, communication skills, technical skills and I am able to work well in a team. All of these skills are easily transferable in a retail environment.
