    United Kingdom - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 1

    Hello! I am a multilingual, highly experienced professional. Two years ago I decided to go off the beaten path, leave my managerial position in fashion retail, which I loved so much and relocate abroad. That was the beginning of a very exciting freelance journey. I have a proven record of meeting and exceeding expectations and I always work as if I'm doing the job for myself. Mediocrity isn't something I cope with, so you can expect utmost attention to detail and fast turnaround. Currently studying Marketing management with entrepreneurship and working on my freelancer portfolio. To date, I have successfully completed over 100 research, data and translation projects with a focus on company research. Language certificates: - C1 level in Russian (mother tongue) - IELTS band 8 - B2 level in French I'm also fluent in Bulgarian (mother tongue) and can work my way around in Greek, Arabic and Spanish.

    I am currently doing volunteer teaching work in France. I speak, read and write both English and French with English being my first language. I have done translation and interpreting work on an individual basis and for large groups. Over the past 4 years I've worked as a Licensed Personal Banker for 2 large banks in New York. Within the bank I managed the sales team, was responsible for meeting sales goals and assisted the manager in managing all functions of the branch. I have strong sales skills but also excellent oral and written communication skills. Part of my job was written communication with clients from diverse backgrounds. This helped me to become proficient in writing, proofreading, and correction. Also I have worked as a Personal Assistant and Manager where I was in charge of organizing meetings, travel arrangements and doing research projects. As a Personal Assistant I managed the team and kept things running in the office. I touch type 60 words per minute and I am very comfortable working with computers.
