I like to maintain a healthy lifestyle and like to ensure that people I am working with do the same. Exercise makes people feel better and I like to ensure that people feel as good as they possibly can. I feel that I am a very motivated person and able to motivate others.
I have excellent communication skills and feel that I work well with others. I like to come up with new ideas and new challenges and am a very committed member of the team.
I would like to continue my career and do some professional sports qualifications to ensure that I am the best at my role for the business I work for. I have worked with children and adults alike and am able to relate to many different types of personality.
I have enclosed my CV for your consideration. Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
