I've been made redundant and at 58 am finding it difficult to find an income source. Whilst my background is in Customer Service and Administration I also have experience in Stores management, factory planning, Electro-mechanical assembly, Data-base control, Material coordination etc. I'm willing to undertake any jobs that might be available from Litter-picking, teaching guitar (I think I'm good), gardening.........anything. I've attached my CV for refs.
NAME:- Chris Harris
CORE SKILLS & EXPERIENCE: - Over the years I’ve gained much experience in a number of fields that I thought relevant to list here:-
ADDRESS: 38 Senga Road, Hackbridge, Surrey. SM6 7BQ
Tel: - 020 8647 1953
EMPLOYMENT: - For most of my working life I have been employed by “PHILIPS” the Dutch electronics company. I started work with this employer in 1974 and stayed with them until redundancy in 1988 (14 years). During this period my roles included running a production floor sub-stores, materials procurement in the buying office, data base input coordinator and onto factory production planner.
After Philips I joined a much smaller company called “Le Maitre” who specialised in producing Stage lighting and effects for the entertainment industry. At Le Maitre I worked as Stores Manager and then as works supervisor but my future there was again blighted by redundancy. I was at Le Maitre from 1988 until 1991.
With the U.K economy now more stable I sought re-employment with PHILIPS and was fortunate enough to be taken on once again by them in 1991 where I remained until September 2012 when yet again economic uncertainty forced redundancy. My roles during this second term with Philips began as a lighting sales-desk person. From there I moved on to becoming a regional supervisor for the sales-desk. My next role was to focus upon building trade with a dedicated customer in a post entitled “Internal Lighting Maintenance Manager”.
ADDITIONAL SKILLS/ATTRIBUTES: - I have a wide range of interests, hobbies and experience. I’m hoping that these attributes, along with an enthusiastic and flexible approach to work will help make me a viable candidate for the post applied for.
EDUCATION: - I was educated to O-Level standard at Elmwood High School in Wallington in the 1970’s. I then enrolled at night school with a view to obtain A-Levels in Maths and Physics. After a year of experiencing a string of course closures I decided to leave night school and to focus on opportunities within my new employer (Philips Electronics).
