My name is Rose, a graduate with proven customer experience and the ability to produce work creatively and non-creatively to a high standard. I am seeking the opportunity to develop my skills from the lecture theatre into a practical, tangible and professional environment. I place a great emphasis on self-development and approach new projects with focus, drive and commitment. With literature and the community being passions of mine, I have centred my endeavours around the arts industry; from sculptures and painted works through to the written word, I am open-minded to appreciate and work with various art-forms across the arena. I am a confident and flexible individual who works on initiative and ensures accountability and responsibility for my workload; I have key experience in meeting tight, often non-negotiable deadlines whilst working to the best of my ability and approaching every situation with optimism.
