Finance Intern : Credit Control (Former Employee) –  RichardsbayFebruary 8, 2013
credit control as the position that I'm currently in at the moment. very challenging as you get to work with people of different age, culture and well beings. Some customers are very rude and difficult to work with but all is achieved through professionalism and determination. the management gives no mercy as they want the target to be mate and deadlines achieved. when a customer walks from my office with a smile on their face, that is what i enjoy the most in my job.
Pros
assisting the customers in need and render community service to keep the community happy
Cons
the municipal politics and distrimination

Environmental Health Practitioner (Current Employee) –  Richards Bay, ZNApril 8, 2015
I work at deep rural areas, where I get to interact with different kinds of communities and people. I have learned to communicate comfortably with people of different cultures and races. I have learned to investigate different communicable disease and implement preventative measures within these community. Working together with my co-workers we have conducted a lot of health and safety awareness training. the hardest part of the job is driving in Rural areas where the roads are not in good condition. the most enjoyable part of the job is when outbreaks are effectively investigated and resolved.

Industrial Relations Officer (Current Employee) –  Richards BayMarch 6, 2013
Ensuring that management and employer/employee relations do not get in the way of service delivery to communities we serve.

It is very important not to get bogged down with the politics that define the environment, but rather to get the job done as effeciently and as effectively as possible.
Pros
job satisfaction derived from making an impact in the lives of ordinary people.
Cons
it is a very political environment.
