Candidate's Resume



I have worked in Quality Assurance for over 10 years and have a background in Science majoring in aquatic resourse management.

My strengths include communicating effectively with personell to achieve desired outcomes for both the business and customer. With a working knowledge of project management, effeciently co-ordinating a laboartory team in a fast paced production environment, communication has been an essential skill that i continue to develop. Other positions involved autonomous field and shift work where decision making and attention to detail was essential. As a team player i like to positively contribute to the team using my problem solving and organisational skills and regarded by others as an approachable and friendly team member.

I am seeking an employer who shares values similar to my own whereby there is a desire to strive toward a common goal with integrity and efficiency. I view my work as an investment rather a job and i'm keen to develop my sklils to provide added value to the company and customer.
