Dear Sir/Madam,

Hope you are well.

I was retrenched in 2020 due to covid and the poor economy.

Since then I have been temping at several companies but my contract expired 31 January 2022 so I am available immediately.

I was working for 21 years at S.A. Earthworks where I did all the Payroll and was responsible for calculating and paying salaries and wages of more than 200 employees including any deductions such as garnishees, medical aid or provident fund. Also dealt directly with Metropolitan who was our group provident fund as well as any queries employees had with their salaries. Dealt with the Bargaining Council direct.

Other duties included salaries for Botswana employees, working closely with Auditors in SA and Botswana.

I also did all the Executive Assistant/PA duties, i.e flight, accommodation, car rental bookings, typing of documents, etc.

Was responsible for company payments including Creditors and personal payments for Directors.

Other duties included Debtors (invoicing and following up on payments) as well as all bank statements for 4 companies and running a self storage company for one of the Directors.

I am kind to others, a fast worker, easy to get along with and use my initiative.

I work well under pressure and am efficient.

Please consider me for this position.

Kind regards,

Salome du Toit
