Dear Sir/Madam, My name is Michelle rant and I am very interested in the Ecommerce Assistant role advertised on LinkedIn. I possess over 15 years' office management/PA and administration experience.

In this role I was employed as office manager, social media coordinator and I provided software support to hundreds of clients. At Nexternal Solutions I trained our clients to sell online and market online. I am social media savvy and passionate about the digital space.
