Anna Johnstone, BA (Hons) History.
Past Employment Experience
I have recently completed a BA (Honours) History degree,through the Open University while bringing up my children. I also hold an LAO Level 2 Certificate in Principles of Business and Administration. My previous employment is in sales administration, where I gained a City and Guilds qualification in Construction and Electrical Materials Distribution. This experience in administration enabled me to hone the skills I acquired prior to leaving full-time education where I was awarded an A’Level in English Literature. I have excellent spoken and written communication, good organisational skills, and an eye for detail. You can be sure of a professional service at all levels
I am resilient, self-motivated and adaptable to sudden change which has enabled me to move house with my family twice, take good care of three young and extremely lively children, while maintaining good coursework grades during my period as a mature undergraduate student. I consider these qualities to be evidence of both my determination and my ability to meet personal challenges and goals, such as attainment of the skills which make my service an excellent choice for your proofreading and editing needs.
While I was studying and bringing up a family, I have been running the online fundraising site of Responsible Charity on a volunteer basis. This is a secular non-profit NGO which provides education and family planning and health services to the people living in the slums of Pune and Kolkata.
