Gareth Sayers


I am a dynamic 22 year old BA Marketing Communications graduate with intern experience at the 140 BBDO agency working on the Hunter's Account. I ran my own business for over a year and have just finished doing some work for a bicycle store, Chris Willemse Cycles before I came across to the USA for 3 months. I am very well presented, and professional, am a team player and have good communication skills. I am looking for a position in Client Service or Brand Management ideally, and am also open to any other related job opportunities. I am prepared to start at the bottom and work hard. I’m a very healthy and fit athlete that takes my sport seriously. I feel that being such a competitive athlete allows me to experience aspects of life that not many others do. I believe that it gives me discipline and the ability to commit to any goal. I have been cycling competitively for 12 years now and managed to compete in the Xterra World Champs last year. Cycling is my obsession and marketing is my passion. To combine those two would be a dream come true. I have a depth of knowledge into cycling parts and brands that simply cannot be taught. I am very organised and really do pride myself on my ability to listen and communicate with people. I am the type of guy that gets given a task, and will go out of my way to ensure that it exceeds expectations. I have completed a course and specialise in Brand management as well as Media management. As mentioned above, I will be in the USA (Staying with family in California) from March and would love nothing more than the opportunity to meet your team. I am looking for a way into the marketing world, and I really feel that I’ve been ready for it for a long time.
