To whom it may concern

During my 25 years working experience, I have met and worked with various people from varying fields of employment, from whom I have gained extensive knowledge and experience. I served as a locum teacher at Elora Primary School for three months after completing my matric in 1988. Thereafter, I worked at Durban Clothing Manufacturers, as a clerk in January 1991 and was later promoted to a wage clerk in July 2000. The challenge was immense and through determination, perseverance and commitment, I adapted to the company wage procedures. I am dedicated and hardworking and work well under pressure. Due to company restructuring, I was retrenched in June 2001. I was employed at Seartec trading t/a Sharp Electronics as a clerk in the Technical Division in June 2001. Due to company Restructuring, Outsourcing and Centralizing, I was retrenched in May 2016. During my years of employment, I have acquired excellent communication skills through liaising with customers daily. I have always been a candidate for any position that requires dedication, loyalty, trust

& most of all responsibility. I am charismatic and versatile and this is evident in my work performance. My honesty and trustworthiness and a need to achieve excellent results has made me well liked amongst my working colleagues and management. I take the initiative to ensure that whatever task given, is attended to and completed. I am flexible, which put in any situation helps me face and solve any problem that may arise. I have a passion for what I do and this is most important for achieving success. I was employed casually for Steel Land a Steel company in Jacobs in December 2016. I was given training in debtors, creditors, sundry creditors, Pastel Payroll (weekly and monthly staff) and Pastel Accounting. I was given training by consultants from Oracle Accounting. Having received training in this field, it gave me more confident and inspired me to learn more about creditors and debtors in the Steel environment. I am grateful and appreciative that I was given the opportunity to learn pastel in a short space of time. Having come from a customer based environment, this was a challenge. Besides pastel accounting, pastel payroll, sundry creditors, I use to do the submissions of the companies SARS e-filing for PAYE and VAT every month end with assistance from the Oracle Accounting. Cash sales reports were given daily to the sales team, for collections and reconciliations of cash for banking. Office care products and stationery requisitions for stationery were monitored and purchased when required. Filing of all Invoices, Credit Notes and daily cash sales reports, once monies are reconciled and banked. I also filed all important and confidential bank documents, personnel employees’ information and company confidential correspondents. I was also responsible for the daily backup of company work, both on PC and flash drive.

It is for these reasons and more that I see myself as being a great asset to your organization and therefore it would be highly appreciated if I am awarded this position. Many thanks

Yours Sincerely

Sharon Dhanpaul (Miss)
