James Hughes

I am an experienced individual who is able to demonstrate competence, analytical thinking,


problem solving.

My Preferred strengths are dealing with people. I am a strong communicator across all levels
having dealt with both internal and external customers, in a variety of situations. I enjoy a
challenge and a quick learner.

I am ready for the next stage of my career and happy to find a new direction within an
organisation that will stretch my talents, in return, for my commitment and ability to work as
part of a team.
