I have a wealth of experience in tourism and hospitality, particularly in receptionist and other customer-facing roles where my consistently high standards and attention to detail ensure I always attain the utmost standards of service and efficiency. My impeccable organisational skills and motivation mean that I excel in back of house roles as well as those front of house, and that no task is beyond my capabilities. I enjoy working with people and am a sociable and approachable character, making all interactions easy and pleasant for both colleagues and customers.
