Summary

Work experience

June 2016present

Aspiring visual merchandiser for flagship

Alongside first-line management tasks, I have been developing strong focus on commerciality as well as being able to adapt and incorporate new lines and products within the brand identity; notably positive results were prompted by close communication with store manager, peers and supporting team members, thus ensuring consistency as well as transferable skills.

Noteworthy consistency and quality in VM duties such as window changes, decal installation, layout adjustments, cleanliness standards as well as any and all changes in displays, upgrades, tweaks and occasional prop juggling. Good understanding of stock, in terms of chasing and adjusting displays in ways that markets the best sellers as well as appropriately accommodate lines going out of stock.

Developed rapidly from sales and product advisor to first line management, due to previous retail experience and natural flare for customer service; added responsibility along with conversion and sales training within 3 months of progression.

Maintaining a strong sense of focus to aid with multitasking, setting priorities and keeping it fast paced. Noticeable adaptability to a highly dynamic, challenging and ultimately entertaining work environment to ensure growth in both my personal and professional development.

Side projects and stuff I do for fun
