A practical and multi skilled individual, I am naturally able to adapt to any task placed in front of me, and am fortunate that I hold the ability to be creative when problems needs to be resolved, I am not easily distracted and am focused when it comes to the workplace. My personal strengths include enthusiasm, a hardworking and conscientious attitude to the workplace but being able to use my own initiative when required. I’m always a team player but able to work well without supervision. I am flexible and adaptable to any situation that arises and possess a keen eye for detail. I have an excellent work attendance and timekeeping record. Holding a full clean UK Driving Licence travel to and from the workplace is not an issue. I believe that provided with the opportunity to regain work I will be an asset to any company that employs me.
