I have a strong skill set, developed through years of industry experience and I thoroughly enjoy both the challenge and excitement of developing new skills and learning new traits. I am a confident, punctual and approachable professional, and believe I would be a great asset to any team.
Administrator / Communications Coordinator / PA / Junior Project Coordinator
I would describe myself as a confident, conscientious and driven person, keen to apply my strong working knowledge of events and project coordination, customer service, administration and management to a new challenge.
I have a BA (Hons) 2:1 in English Literature, a typing score of 70 WPM with 90% accuracy and I possess excellent communication skills with confidence in expressing myself both verbally and in writing. I have strong IT skills and am familiar with MS Office Programmes as well as experience in content management using a CMS.
I have significant experience of carrying out a wide range of administrative tasks in a busy office environment, most significantly through my current role as Events Manager of a prestigious, award-winning venue and my previous role as Applications Officer at The Family Fund. I have had experience in both junior and managerial roles, working both autonomously and as part of a team, and I enjoy both. As a core founding member of the team, I have had the opportunity to work closely with the proprietor in order to develop best working practices and procedures.
I have an excellent working knowledge and experience of managing events in a high-profile communications environment as well as a strong understanding of project administration/management, pulling together logistics on a near-daily basis. As Events Manager of a prestigious award-winning venue, I have had extensive experience of liaising with a variety of stakeholders of varying levels in various sectors and I recognise the importance of clear planning and logistics and how these practices are best applied depending on the event I work closely with venue sourcing agencies on a regular basis as well as PA’s and executive assistants for large high-profile clients.I am experienced and very comfortable delivering high-profile events and liaising with MD level staff and stakeholders, and I am very confident in my ability to build and nurture external relations.
My name is Hamish Davison. I come from Bridlington but caught the travel bug early on. After graduating I looked at my options and decided to TEFL in Spain. This was originally to learn Spanish. I met my now fiancee online while in Spain, and uprooted my life once more and moved to the Netherlands. Her plan was to do a masters for a year somewhere abroad, and so I needed to find work which I could take with me. This is how I found Upwork. I have been freelancing very successfully on Upwork for the last 2 years now. At first, I was just doing content writing, but I soon discovered Moz, and have since mastered how to create my own briefs, keywords lists, keyword strategies, content strategies, as well as implementing them. I could only stay in California, where my fiancee chose eventually, for 3 months at a time so now I find myself back at home, thirsting for some work to get my teeth stuck into. My plan is to move to York as soon as I have a position, which I have the funds for.
