Whatever is going...
I am a very outgoing, self-driven person, who is able to work efficiently as part of a team as well as independently. I would consider myself to be a reliable and punctual individual who uses initiative to meet and resolve challenges. Although been a quick worker, I strive to finish all my challenges to a very pleasing standard. I am keen to work in this sector of the job industry as I feel I meet the essential criteria needed to fulfill this role to a high standard. Additionally as an Army Cadet for a prolonged period of time this built up my confidence a lot, especially being with people you’ve never met and having to adapt to them and your surroundings quickly was very positive. I was often with small groups and sometimes in charge of the said small groups in the field, furthermore there was ALWAYS an emphasis on teamwork in the Army Cadet Force.
