I am a very hard working self-motivated woman, with drive and ambition. I strive to complete my work timeously, at the highest standard, paying attention to every detail, and ensuring I have covered every aspect of my task.

I have worked on a lot of temporary or short-term assignments and contract in the past, as I was a stay at home mom for many years. However, in February 2016, I became a single parent and took on a more permanent position as a PA to Mr. Richard Lennox at PLG Ballito academy. The school was a private education system which ran from Grade RRR through to Matric. I was promoted twice during my employ at PLG, for my hard work and dedication to my Job. Whilst being an at home mom with my 2 children, I bought a Magazine called Junior Mag where I did everything from Design, sales, Content writing, Distribution, Publication and Editing, I am still the owner of the magazine, however due to circumstances it had to take a back seat.

I possess good people skills and building strong relationships with clients and co-workers as well as being trustworthy, reliable and I always take pride in my work. My strong and focused approach to customer service and well-developed people and computer skills make me a perfect candidate for this position.

A few of my key proficiencies I possess which can relate directly to your job requirements include:

• Good people skills, positive attitude and a high attention to detail

• Demonstrated ability to perform financial transactions

• Great aptitude of greeting customers and building good relations

• Expert in managing complex inventory operations

I am convinced that my broad knowledge equipped me with a strong set of valuable competencies that meet your needs. I am eager to combine my energy to make a meaningful contribution to the companies long term goals.
