I’ve recently graduated from Teesside University where I studied Interior Architecture and Design.
I have recently finished studying Interior Architecture and Design at Teesside University. While there I learnt how to digitally model in both 2D and 3D. I can use CAD, alongside other programs such as 3DS Max and photoshop, i am also competent in most Microsoft packages. Through my time at university I learnt how to manage my work load and time effectively, as well as prioritising projects to fit deadlines. As a whole I am very approachable and chatty, which allows me to put customers and clients at ease. I have previously worked in many different customer based environments, including running a team in a supervisory role. Through my experience as both a sales manager and senior sales I have a strong knowledge in both cash handling and how to bank a day’s takings.
