I have impeccable attention to detail, a forward thinking attitude and great resourcefulness. I have great interpersonal skills in problem solving and strategic discussions within team situations.
I am someone who embraces the opportunity to propel change and get things done in new, creative and innovative ways. I can take initiative and think outside the box to look at problems differently to find new ways of doing things.
I am able to meet deadlines even with limited budgets.

digital marketing growth assistant
I am currently in my second year at University, studying Business Management and Economics. Outgoing, ambitious and conscientious, my medium term goal is to run my own business. Following graduation (in June 2024), I would like to join a business that will enable me to make a meaningful contribution, learn quickly and develop my commercial skills.
I was attracted to working with Onicko due to my wide variation of skills and passion for customer service and approach to sales.
The experience I have gained from industries such financial services, property development, retail and food and beverage services has meant that my understanding for individual business needs and wants is particularly expansive, and has further developed my knowledge.

Also know as Lady Whippington, Faux lady of Thornbridge. circa 2017.
London... Paris ... Tideswell ...as you can see Millie the office pet is a bit of a diva!
She likes nothing more than sitting on your lap when your trying to work! She doesn't do much apart from snoozing on one of her bean bags or can be found on one of the sofas (I told you she was a diva).
She also like to go on walks and enjoys running through fields although not when its raining!
Its a hard life being a whippet!
