Hello, I have recently returned to full time study and I am looking for part time/casual work to coincide with my studies. I have worked within Licensed establishments in both Australia and the UK.. More recently I have had sales roles with key client management. I have a current RSA/RCG and would be available to work evenings and weekends predominately. I would be available at short notice if required, so long as I was able to plan around my studies. I am a confident, reliable and trustworthy person who would be able to be counted upon. I am available at any time to discuss any roles you may have available. Hope to hear from you soon. Regards Matt
