Preferred location

Hi there!

I am from Croatia originally, but have been living in lovely Ireland for the last 10 years.
I am easy going, hard-working, honest and reliable.
I have a wide range of work experience but I am also very willing to learn new skills. I am a fast learner and motivated to do every task.
Gracias! Obrigado!

Skills

*I had worked for many years in hotels in Dublin (as receptionist and waitress). I speak English and German fluently and can communicate in Spanish.
* I was working as pet/house sitter in Ireland - I took care of dogs and cats while owners were away on holidays. Also I have taken care of friends and neighbours cats/dogs/rabbits. Every opportunity like that was a big happiness for me as I love animals.
* I was giving private lessons to students of English language (in Spain and Ireland). I like children and teaching. I was also working as a babysitter in Croatia and Germany.
*I have experience in marketing on social media (Facebook pages and groups). I have my own website and Facebook page.
*I love gardening and always have some plants around me.
*In Ireland I have volunteered for International Film Festivals, riding school for children with disabilities and as a teacher of computer skills to elderly people.
*I am part-qualified accountant (have experience with Sage, Excel etc). Other than that I worked as a shop assistant and customer service agent.
