I have always been regarded as an enthusiastic worker with a good eye for detail. I am motivated to improve myself and enjoy assignments that push me, whether by tight deadlines or content. I enjoy my work and it never worries me if I have to put more hours in to get the assignment completed correctly in a short space of time. I am also an associate member of the SfEP.
