My name is Emily Hicks and I am currently looking for a casual or part time job, with an average of 25-30 hours a week.
My current line of work is running my freelance media production business, EMIKAHI ART, which is almost into its 3rd year of operation. I’ve worked for a wide variety of individuals, including creatives, entrepreneurs, small businesses and charities/non-profits who required services such as graphic design, illustration, visual branding and social media marketing strategies. I operate my business from home and arrange it around my schedule accordingly.
While establishing my business, I have always had a casual or part time job to provide myself a stable base income, and this is what I am looking for currently.
My most recent job was working part time as a cashier/stock person/barista at IGA South Brisbane. I left this position in Nov 2017 due to over-hiring and lack of hours, and have since taken the holiday period to work further on generating clients and starting a remote volunteer internship as a graphic designer/illustrator at Brisbane radio station 4ZZZ.
I started working in hospitality during high school at Red Rooster (cashier, f&b attendant) and McDonalds (food prep, barista). During my time at university, I gained almost 4 years of retail experience working an average of 3-4 days a week as Level 3 Senior Retail Assistant at Mattress Warehouse Direct, a bedding and furniture store. I also did a 6 month Christmas casual contract at Forever 21 to gain experience in fashion retail. I feel that my exposure to both of these industries has served to my advantage in understanding many facets of a workplace.
While this is not a necessary element in the employment I am looking for, I would also love to express my willingness to help out with graphic design, illustration, marketing and/or branding, inside or outside of work time, as I would love to help your business thrive in any possible way I can.
I am a reliable, professional, creative, multi-skilled employee with full availability, and flexibility with hours.
I am raring and ready to go ASAP, so please do not hesitate to contact me for an interview or trial!
