P.S. This is not a corporate type of structured job. I am an entrepreneurial small business owner.  I move quickly to capitalise on opportunities. This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. Performance is everything to me. If you perform, you will be rewarded. I want nothing more than to find a person who takes real interest in producing excellent work and contributing to the growth of the business. If that’s you, I promise that £10/hour is only the starting point. I recognise and reward performance.

With that said, as I mentioned in the headline on this page, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go a long way. I’m a very positive, upbeat person and appreciate those qualities in others. As long as you have the basic skills I mentioned, and a great attitude, you’re definitely a candidate!
