Bio


I am an outgoing, friendly and dynamic person who
thrives within a challenging environment.


 


Having worked as a Regional Officer of UTU, for five years
I have developed an extensive knowledge base within a broad range of areas such
as negotiation, legal matters, health and safety, equality and pensions for
6000 members.


 


I am committed to my professional development evident
by my enthusiasm to learn and my flair to apply my knowledge and transfer my
skills appropriately. I have specialised in Education and Financial sector
, which has been a personal interest of mine and also a
personal interest which has enabled me to excel within this area. Other areas I
have an in depth knowledge about include; General Workers, Education,
Manufacturing, Construction, Health, Food Drink and Tobacco, Community, Local
authorities, Youth Workers and Not for Profit sector, Docks, Rail,
 Wider Public  Sector, Ferries & Waterways, Road Transport Commercial,
Logistics and Retail Distribution,
Civil Service, 
MoD and Government Departments.


 


Being responsible for a vast range of duties has given
me the opportunity to demonstrate my aptitude and my adaptability towards
differing situations and environments.


 


Performing a broad variety of skills and duties has proven my capacity
to retain knowledge and apply it interchangeably to varying situations.
Throughout my duties and responsibilities I have demonstrated the ability to
work under pressure through meeting deadlines, whilst maintaining a positive
approach and a determination to succeed. My dynamic approach has been
demonstrated through presenting innovative ideas of my own and also managing
training in order to maximise the potential of others.


 


My commitment to equality throughout my work has been
paramount. I have managed potentially difficult situations which has challenged
me and enabled me to develop professionally whilst maintaining sensitivity and
customer focus at all times. Building close relations with others employers,
stakeholders, employees
has demonstrated my confidence to communicate and my excellent interpersonal
skills.


 


One of the areas of negotiation involved buying goods at competitive
rates in order to manage costs and budgets, and support business growth. This
also involved gaining an exhaustive knowledge base of the available market.


 


I am extremely hard working and possess a passion for
working with people which I have also displayed through being a Greek Language
teacher in my spare time.


 


I embrace every new
opportunity and am very keen to further my learning to enable me to


 develop more professionally and personally.
