Invigilator (Former Employee) – Johannesburg, Gauteng – 1 June 2017
I was exposed to working with different nationalities and working under pressure as well and as such my people skills were improved as I dealt with different people everyday. The job I did needed patience, commitment, understanding and meticulousness which I was never found wanting. My job also entailed confidentiality as we dealt with examinations and results of many people which included at times travelling to out of Johannesburg examination centres and extra caution was expected in securing those examination papers.
Shouldering huge responsibility of securing examination papers
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Gauteng – 1 March 2016
At first I could not handle difficult customers because I could not manage my temper. As time went by I was able to deal with difficult customers as I learnt how to manage my anger and always out myself in the customers shoes.
One thing I enjoyed was to study customers minds and always think ahead of them. With my lovely smile I became the best in what I did.
Lastly I enjoy traveling and meeting new people and through british council I managed to do that. I have been to almost all the provinces in south africa and to countries outside as well. Countries such as angola
Business Support Services and Development Officer (Current Employee) – Johannesburg North, GP – 30 March 2015
The British Council is a cultural relations non profit UK organization that focuses mainly on establishing relationships with African countries and the UK by means of projects, arts and english and society.
It is a great organization to work for as it is a internationally established organization. we work under a nice envirnoment in a open plan office with minimal supervision.
I currently work in the Resources department with the following management structure - Country Director, Compliance Manager, Operations Manager, Business Support Service and Development Officers, Assistance and Office Driver. Management is ok at the British Council however it does need a lot of improvement.
There are many challenges in my job consibering that i provide support to the whole directorate however i would say the greatest part of my job would be lack of support from management where needed.
I enjoy my job very much, however i have reached a point where u feel i can not grow any further and i need personal growth, new chalenges and an increase in financial strength.
Free phone, and mobile phone, flexible hours and laidback environment
