Personal Summary

Having recently moved to Canada, I am currently looking for employment on either a part-time or full-time basis (preferably the latter). Although I have spent the majority of my life living in the UK, I am a Canadian citizen with a social insurance number and am legally able work in the country. I am currently residing in Mississauga, Ontario, however am very keen to move to Banff long-term in order to further my Canadian experience and enjoy the outdoors activities. 

As demonstrated in my resume, I have almost a decade of experience working in various environments, from retail to healthcare. Although these roles differ and are not directly related to this particular job, I have accumulated various skills that I feel would be extremely beneficial to your establishment. These skills include: communication skills, listening skills, presentation skills and ability to understand and empathise customer’s needs.

I have also acquired work ethics that I believe are essential for working in a professional manner. This includes persistency in the routine at work, such as checking emails and invoices frequently, having a positive attitude, being approachable and ensuring the work space is clean and presentable.

Although I am aware that this job will be different to what I have done before, I am positive that I will be able to adapt my skills to fit your policies and procedures. Through my professional and educational experiences, I have proven that I am capable of learning and adapting to new environments and situations.
