Summary

As an ambitious professional I have tailored my future by gaining valuable practical and theoretical experience. Highly experienced in a team-based environment, I have shown strong leadership and interpersonal skills while being a top, goal-orientated employee. Started my career with a few lower value projects which allowed me to demonstrate my skilles and earned the opportunity to deliver DEFRA's highest value multi-million project so far.
