About Tara Breslin:

After graduating with a First Class honours degree in Fashion Marketing (BSc) from the University of Manchester, I returned to SIRPLUS as a Buying Admin Assistant, having interned with them the previous summer. This sustainable brand is built on the notion of using surplus fabrics to create premium menswear in limited runs. From the outset, I was heavily involved in this process, from design to delivery. In the year and a half I was with SIRPLUS, I progressed through two promotions to become an Assistant Buyer for the business.

HAYS, London UK — Receptionist / Front of House
June - September 2018


Over a summer break from University, HAYS Recruitment agency assigned me to work on reception for multiple oces in central London. The broad scope of international businesses, which included Google, Kao and AXA Insurance, taught me to quickly adapt to each company culture, whilst maintaining a friendly and personable demeanour at all times. During my time with HAYS, I learnt how to communicate eectively in a corporate environment, whilst juggling multiple tasks and prioritising accordingly.


JOHN LEWIS, London UK — Branded Womenswear Assistant
June 2015 - September - 2017


Over the course of two years, I gained invaluable experience within this well renowned department store in the UK. I was taught about the importance of the consumer for both the reputation of the brand and the success of the branch itself. By providing impeccable customer service, we were able to upsell whilst ensuring that each customer left satisfied and willing to return. This consumer relationship building interested me, eventually leading me to study Fashion Marketing at University.
