Is this you? 

I have a passion for digital marketing and e-commerce. I love coming up with new ideas and problem solving. I enjoy collaborating and I know how important strategic thinking and organisation is to building an e-commerce brand.


I work well with others and strive help my team wherever possible. I am on it. I do not need to be micro managed. 

I understand the power of relationships. I have strong communication skills and am able to come up with new ideas to help my team achieve their goals. 

I am very organised, I make lists and Im very good at planning. I love to plan weeks in advance. I have an eye for detail. I understand the importance of working to strict deadlines and will ensure nothing is missed. 

I!m a grafter. No task is too big or small for me, Ill just get stuck in whatever I need to, to help the people around me. I'm highly motivated to get things done, and I always use my initiative. I don’t settle and average is not enough. I drive for quality. 

I love getting feedback. I constantly want to learn, grow and develop myself. If I don!t know how to do something, I will learn, quickly. Problems and challenges don!t scare me, they excite me! EVERYTHING is 

achievable and ‘I can’t’ isn’t acceptable. I take ownership and love having responsibility. I take great pride in everything I do. I always have a positive outlook. 

My ideal day would involve an early start, to get ahead of the game, and then a day full of challenges that I overcome one after another, without the need to involve my manager. In fact, they won!t always know that there have been any problems, which makes me feel really good about myself. 

Sometimes things will change last minute, and I!ll deal with it. I!m a problem solver and I just get it done. It!s fast paced and fun, with everyone in the team doing their bit! I love it.
