Enthusiastic, efficient and professional, I am able to quickly and easily adapt to whichever environment I am in to produce results for whichever task I am given. As a law graduate, I am a natural problem solver, who will go to lengths to successfully complete tasks and solve problems within time limits. Until recently I was working as an assistant to the Senior Partner at a city law firm, which involved a high level of responsibility undertaking daily duties and tasks as required.
