An enthusiastic, responsible worker eager to meet challenges and adapt to new situations.
Keen to undertake further training,
Experiences include working both as an effective part of a team
and on own initiative, staff supervision and attention to detail.

I was brought up bi-lingual. My father is English and my mother Danish, and spent the long summer holidays every year living in Denmark. Living with grandparents when young and working in my uncle's factory as a teenager.

My other language is German which I also learnt from an early age, seven, added to during an exchange trip to live with a German family for two months, at fourteen. Then an A at "O" grade. Most recently my reading of German has been polished by processing CVs from Germany Austria and Switzerland for Intronet.

My school boy French, also from the age of seven, has also been benefited by reading Covering Letters and CVs from France Switzerland and Belgium.

I also process job applications from Norway(Norwegian),Sweden(Swedish), The Netherlands(Dutch) and Italy(Italian).
