Kirsten's Profile

Experience Summary

I have worked in the promotional industry in England both full- and part-time for three years. I have worked on brands such as Cadbury, Garnier, PS3, HP, Activision and L'Oreal, on deomnstrations, sampling, data capture, and merchandising campaigns. I have worked as brand ambassador, tema leader, and as a shots girl. I am moving to NZ for a few months to save some moeny so I can travel, and as I have worked in promotions before I felt this would be the best option for me. I am hoping to settle down for a few months in Queesntown, as my boyfriend is an avid snowboarder, and I too enjoy the sport. I am adventurous and love traveling and finding out about new cultures, which is why a job which involves taling to many different sorts of people suites me. I have studied a law degree and management masters at university, but during this time also ran the art society, through which i was able to channel mu creative side. The committee won an award for the most innovative creative society in the University while I was acting as Trasurer and Co-Chair. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
