Dear Sir/Madam

I have a truly dynamic personality that accompanies a wide range of knowledge and experience. From humble beginnings as a Receptionist/PA in the IT industry to developing and growing at a Supply Chain and Procurement Industry and assuming the title of Vendor Consultant. Due to my exceptional performance, I was then promoted to Team/Vendor Manager. I am currently a Project/Vendor Manager and have yet again received this title due to performance. I am now seeking employment opportunities in the management (Office/Team/Project/Vendor) field as I feel that my position has become stagnant. Kindly note I would be eager to attempt any other opportunities that may be offered to me. I have a proven track record of responsibility, integrity and commitment. I am comfortable working independently or as part of a team.

I am proactive and assertive. I strive to excel and always set new and higher challenges for myself. I am self-motivated and enthusiastic about any task I might undertake. I strive to get the best out of people, thus ensuring staff development and growth.

I believe in empowering my staff to a level that will allow them to work independently or with minimum supervision. I believe strongly in team spirit and always endeavour to build relationships between team members.

I have extensive experience handling a variety of different clientele through various levels of communication. I have excellent management, administration and organizational skills and am able to manage projects from inception to implementation. My experience is truly noticeable on its own merit; however those years of knowledge are also backed up by my qualifications. These range from a Certificate in Bookkeeping to a Computer Clerk Course. I would like to earn my place at the seat of any company serious about employing high quality individuals and am definitely an employee that will stand out in any working environment.

Current salary (gross salary) – R204 000 per annum

Expected salary - between R156 000 - R204 000 per annum. However, I am willing to work for a salary lower then my expected salary per annum.

Professional Achievements

Thanking you in advance
