After some time away from the workplace I am ready to return to full-time work and would like to be considered for administration and reception positions, having volunteered in those roles for over two years.
Possessing a good standard of spoken English and Mathematics, I have over two-and-three-quarter year’s part-time experience in administration, reception and retail roles, backed up by three Level 2 business skills qualifications and a C&G Unit Warehouse in Sage 50 Accounting, plus a Master of Science degree in an Engineering discipline.
I am seeking a return to full-time work after a career break and believe that the afore-mentioned qualities, along with the award of Volunteer of the Year in respect of my administration and reception activities, highlights my suitability for this kind of work.
In one of those positions, I serve on the reception desk and telephone as first point of contact, as well as deputising for the facility administrator and training new reception volunteers. Other aspects of the role include the use of Microsoft Word for creating procedure manuals, publicity materials and assessment forms and the use of Microsoft Excel, primarily for small-scale data entry and for producing weekly reports for management and schedules for clients. My duties have also included further data entry tasks and the production of yearly KPI reports. Prior to that, I had several years’ experience using Excel for data cleansing and preparation for input to direct mail and statement production systems.
In another role, I created and continue to maintain the website and event calendar for the organisation, as well as converting the document library for publishing on-line.
My previous full-time work experience is mostly in direct mail and statement production; I took opportunities to improve processes when appropriate to the role; in one case, I created a solution for a recurring issue which when approved replaced manual intervention and saved approximately four minutes per job.
I hope the information provided is of sufficient interest for you to contact me regarding any suitable positions and look forward to hearing from you very soon.
