Personal Summary

Having moved over to Toronto recently from Ireland I am keen to begin a new career. I have gained almost three valuable years of experience working for Holland and Barrett one of the biggest health stores across Britain and Ireland so I believe I would be a great asset to any company. During my work placement for college I also gained relevant laboratory based experience.


I am a conscientious person who works hard and pays attention to detail. I'm flexible, quick to pick up new skills and eager to learn from others. I work well on my own or as part of a team and have tonnes of enthusiasm. I'm keen to work for a company that has a great reputation and high profile.
