Have you got the right career for me?
I am looking for a full time permanent career, where I can work my way up and bring as much as I can to the company, while feeling like I am part of that company. I am capable of working as part of a team and am also self disciplined. I am currently seeking an admin, purchasing, hr, sales, logistics or recruitment consultant role. However I am open and interested to consider any other opportunities.
