Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ENG21 May 2014
This was my work experience placement in 2011 (year 11 of my secondary school). This work experience was fun but did include heaps of tasks to carry out. I was more independent when carrying out the tasks, however the most fun aspect of this job was engaging with the audience to help them purchase a clothing item(s) of their desire.

Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Birmingham15 May 2014
I undertook a one week work experience placement at a busy retail - Blue Inc. I had a range of diverse responsibilities, however one which I performed everyday was greeting customers who entered the shop, giving advice and guidance on product selection. This allowed me to use my friendly and engaging personality, in order to communicate with customers effectively. I had also stocked shelves with merchandise, attaching correct price tags in order to allow the customers to know the price and see is visibly. Whilst my placement I also had to ensure that the correct number and items of clothes were received from the supplier and also keeping up to date with special promotions as well as putting up displays. I learnt excellent customer service skills. I worked effectively in a team environment by helping colleagues and taking forward instructions from my manager. Nonetheless, when necessary I was also comfortable working independently and implementation tasks in an efficient and disciplined manner.
