I have always been interested in working with numbers and
my experience of working in the retail industry has allowed me to understand
the workings of real figures. This experience of working in retail has enabled
me to have good spoken communication skills and it required me to pay attention
to everything that took place, from taking payment to making new orders. In
a previous office job, my role required me to work within a team and working
to deadlines was something that I had to do on a weekly basis. It was this
team working that enabled us to reach our targets.
As there was a lot of paperwork involved in this role I had to ensure that I was very organised and my knowledge of Word and Excel allowed me to become successful in this job. It is these skills that I believe would enable me to carry out this job to the best of my ability.
