I have recently completed a work placement with an electrician and observed and where possible assisted with electrical work undertaken, within an industrial and domestic capacity. Within this time I was able to observe the installation and repair of motors and fans within a spray booth. I was also able to assist in the installation of lights, heating and fan ducts within a domestic environment. During this time I proved to be reliable and committed as I undertook with positivity any tasks that were required. A reference in respect to my work within this time is attached in my Curriculum Vitae. Throughout my employment with Big W I have developed and demonstrated strong negotiation skills that have ensured a win-win outcome for the customer and the company. I have also developed and demonstrated strong communication skills when communicating with customers, colleagues and management. I am reliable and am able to work either independently or within a team environment and able to demonstrate initiative. Also working within the retail environment I have developed and demonstrated strong problem solving skills when assisting customers, and within the Christmas period have at many times worked to deadlines and within a pressured situation. During this time I have demonstrated the ability to remain calm and implement effective time management skills to achieve the required outcomes.
