I am a Food Scientist from England who has worked with major multiples such as Asda (Walmart) Coop and Tesco project managing new products from test kitchen to shelf. I have competent IT skills and have used the following platforms: Most Microsoft Office applications, new product submissions to brand bank (managing & distributing platform for content for multi-channel retailing online), dietary and costing software (Hamilton and Grant), Asda Aspect and Cooperative online product specification databases. I am amenable to managing other databases. I am currently living abroad in Thailand providing private English lessons to adults. I would like to expand my portfolio online, to utilise the skills I have and help other businesses in specific areas. I have a secure internet connection and I am able to work 06:00am till 18:00p.m GMT most days. My working days are flexible due to the nature of private tuition work.
