About me 

I would describe myself as a well presented, hard-working individual who thrives at the chance of learning new skills. Having worked in coffee shops and bars for years, I have gained excellent communication skills and enjoy working with the public. I always like to work quickly but neatly so I can get the task I have been given done in a professional and efficient manner. I like to think I am someone who works well alongside others and easy to get along with as I am a sociable person.
