I have good inter-personal skills due to extensive client face-to-face liaison during a projects life cycle. This requires good communication skills to manage expectations of delivery, time and costs. I thrive on working within a team to meet these objectives.
I am working freelance to further my skill base and to work with a diversity of clients, projects and colleagues. Freelance provides me with these fresh opportunities whilst also allowing me to manage my own existing clients and projects.
