I enjoy working in retail with customers and feel that I have got excellent customer service skills and pick up new things quickly. I am experienced in operating a till, I have worked in different departments and enjoy learning new products and ways of operating.

I am flexible in the hours and days that I work and always happy to help with extra shifts as required. I am a car owner so I would travel to work by car so do not have to rely on public transport.
