Professional Summary

I am a motivated, determined, hard-working individual with a thirst for success. I can help an employer with daily administrative tasks and schedules as they focus on larger company goals. I will be available on multiple channels for 24/7 contact such as emails, video messaging, instant messaging, and phone calls. From arranging meetings to organising travel and handling confidential financial information, I can manage various tasks. I am currently a student at the University of Salford, studying International Business, due to graduate in 2021. I chose this course as I have experience in various fields and industries which has provided me with knowledge in different backgrounds and prepared me to tackle any challenge with a Virtual Assistant role. The skills and qualities I obtain as well as my caring and nurturing personality contributed to being titled Senior Prefect in my Grammar School to represent the school at various national events as well as being awarded an unconditional offer for entry into my top University choice. I believe that I am a suitable candidate for a Virtual Assistant position as I am passionate, independent and complete every activity to the best of my ability.
