My name is Dominic Harkness, a 22 year old Designer from Manchester.

I am emailing because I am currently looking for work within the design industry. Whether you have an available position or not, I am more than willing to shadow or volunteer my services.

My core strength is People. I have had direct sales jobs in the past, showing that I can convey ideas to anyone, I can get along with anyone and more importantly, I can work with anyone. Which makes me and teamwork a very lucrative combination. I know how to get the best out of people to get the best results.
