Esther Ellis

A confident, collaborative and highly personable team player, with many years’ experience working in high pressure environments. Having worked for 25 years in British Airways working in various key departments, I understand how to work with a wide range of people, cope with urgent issues and to adapt to difficult situations. I know how to work to the highest standards, while being supportive of all team members. Plenty of personal experience in working with BAME community artistes in professional productions. I am now seeking opportunities to take the MUA skills I have learned at The Iver Academy into the theatre, television and film world, enabling me to pursue my life’s passion to be in the creative arts.
