Summary

Currently a ASM role at BWS, I am hereby putting forward my interest in applying for Manager in Berwick Street.

Within my short time with Cass I feel like I have developed quite rapidly which has proven to be nothing short of beneficial to my personal and professional development.

(as well as really really awesome)

With peak time approaching rapidly, and Ting sadly leaving come end of October, I feel like I would be qualified and competent enough to step into the role of SM, with all the ongoing tasks, challenges and responsibilities.

My main goal is to focus on consistency and support within the new team and reinforce the brand awareness as well as the manifesto, so everyone can have a fun-loving and smooth Christmas, staff and customers alike.

Despite only being promoted into my current role as ASM less than 3 months ago, I do believe that the training and job requirements I have been fulfilling since coming into this role speak for themselves on the fact that I care a lot about bringing the best to the table, for myself as well as the people in my professional proximity. 

Work experience

Assistant Manager at Soho

Coming into a new role in a new team with a new manager/supervisor has not been quite as daunting as I expected. Within a short interval, we have managed to implement a lot of changes and hire a full new team which is as hardworking as they are fun loving and spirited. The day in day out logistics are not always the easiest but I expect great things to start showing from BWS

Sales Assistant/Key Holder/Supervisor

Modest beginning in sales and service, product advisor with in depth tea knowledge, previous retail experience and a flare for customer service.

Key holder and Supervisor status attained shortly after. 

Because I was so invested in my role I made a point of taking on extra responsibilities such as sales and service training and visual merchandising duties. Professional commitment and dedication paid off when the company created a new job description and a title for the role I was fulfilling in my home store.
