I am a kind-hearted individual who thrives on variety and creativity. I also love animals and small children and they seem to quite like me too. An all-rounder who likes the outdoors, doesn't mind getting her hands dirty and wants to work!
I currently reside in beautiful Diamond Harbour, Banks Peninsula and although work close to/from home would be a blessing, I am happy to travel for the right job/s ^_^
My background is mainly in customer service, child care and hospitality, however in all of these roles I made use of my creative skill. I was always designated chalkboard designer/illustrator and was even paid for extra work on promotional posters at Scrummy Mummies cafe. While at Scrummy Mummies, (which owes its name to its family-oriented nature), I also organised a holiday programme for patron's children, hosted story-telling, did ceramic art and on occassion stepped into the chef's shoes. I am part-way through a degree in arts at the University of Canterbury and essay-writing is something I actually enjoy-not dread! A reader from a young age and generally a lover of words, I consider myself an amteur writer also. So aside from the usual eftpos/cash handling, customer service and barista skills you might expect, I offer a whole lot more!
People Describe Me As
'Sweet' is the word most often used to describe me, if I am honest. I am ok with this, although I sometimes wish it were something a little edgier.
I'm Proud Of
My three-month trip around South America last year. I worked hard and saved hard for over a year to get there and it was well worth it. I also threw myself into an unusual situation without anyone I knew around me and surprised myself at how I handled the challenge.
The Way I Work
I'm a perfectionist and I always aim to get it right the first time. I don't mind whether I work in a team or alone, but probably prefer to work in a small group or by myself. I will often make lists so that I can manage time more effectively and stay organised. I don't believe in doing anything half-heartedly and prefer to exceed expectations rather than just meet them.
I Specialise In
Projects of an artistic nature such as paintings/cards/invitations/design work and writing. However I am an all-rounder who loves variety so even if you need someone to haul bricks for an afternoon, let me know!
I Would Be Perfect For
Someone with animals and/or children who owns a cafe that needs some staff and art on the walls, has a birthday coming up that they'd like original invitations for, a fence that needs painting and wants a good, honest worker!
Versatile, Open-minded, Humorous, Intelligent, Empathetic
I had to leave my previous full-time job due to the illness of my partner. I am now seeking something more flexible and hopefully more enjoyable too. I stumbled upon an article on Phillippa in a magazine and thought I'd check out greensky. What a superb idea. I hope I find work soon ^_^
