  • 5 Thorne St, Burnie - Tas

Application to work with Sanity - Burnie


Detail-oriented, inquisitive, mature good communicator with great people skills and a passion for outstanding customer service. Computer literate, social media friendly, efficient, organised.



Attention to Detail

Having worked in both bookkeeping and food prep I know how important it is to pay attention to the task at hand. I am able to concentrate on minutiae for as long as necessary and I find cross referencing easy.  I am fastidious and at the same time can work quickly.

Fast Learner

It's essential to have a strong knowledge of the products and services on offer. I pride myself in learning as much as possible about them so that I can answer questions, or find the best item to fit the situation. Adaptability is essential in this fast developing environment and I enjoy the challenge of keeping up with it.

People Skills

I've worked in many industries and lived in a few countries. This has given me an appreciation and an ability to relate to, and cooperate with, people from all walks of life. I pride myself in my communication skills and I believe cooperation is often the best path to a solution.

Customer Service

I believe that the best way to serve a customer is to ask questions to find out what they want and have great product knowledge to match up their request with the right products.

All my previous jobs have had a very strong focus on dealing with customers and making them happy. I get a strong sense of satisfaction from turning a client's complaint into praise for the company and the way it gets handled.
