I, Sidartha Jithoo, have in the range of ** years working experience in the Office Administrator, Receptionist, PA and Secretary fields.
I have a very creative mind with a unique perspective when approaching an issue due to my broad range of interests and hobbies.
Creativity is the source of differentiation and therefore, at the root of competitive advantage.
I always have an eye on my target. I endeavor to deliver high-quality work on time, everytime. Hiring me is the only real guarantee for results.
I know this job inside and out. With relevant experience, there is no question whether I will be efficient on the job. I can bring the best practices to the company and, I have a high level of motivation.
During my previous employment at Armstrong Appointments, I began as a Data Capturer and a few months later moved on to Frontline Receptionist/ Office Administrator/ Personal Assistant to the Managing Director.
In 2008 I joined an Internationally acclaimed corporate company and was assigned to the role of Business Unit Administrator to the Financial Services department.
Here I maintained the role for several years assisting Accountant Clerks with daily planning and various admin needs.
I held a vital role in the Administration field as I had to ensure that all staff were taken care of in terms of their daily planners and other admin they required.
In 2013 I was assigned a role as Manager Administrator, i.e. PA to the Managers.
Here I was required to assist the Supervisors, Managers and Associate Directors with various admin requirements as well as diary management, travel bookings, meeting arrangements, conferencing, arranging annual financial statements, data capture and more.
I believe strongly in personal accountability and integrity and have always made sure to represent both my employer and myself in a professional and ethical manner.
I strive to ensure that I am always paying close attention to detail.
If I were to be hired by your company, I would be dedicated to delivering the same kind of quality service to all. I am a hard-working, driven individual and I am both a motivated self-starter as well as an enthusiastic team player. I am open to travel.
