: Perform necessary actions for accounts to be managed by credit operations, monitoring and control

I accept hard work and pressure not only as a challenge but also as a judgement of my abilities. I believe that my knowledge would be beneficial to any Company and lack thereof will be compensated by my enthusiasm to learn. I am a hard working and conscientious person, always willing to help others. My good interpersonal skills and ability to communicate with people on all levels has enabled me to establish and maintain good working and social relationships as well as giving me the ability to adapt to demanding working situations. My practical judgement and ability to learn quickly, while remaining calm have always been my strengths. I consider myself as being open minded and flexible and for me the essence of a job is personal fulfilment, to be excited and motivated about the work undertaken. I would therefore excel in a working environment that is supportive and challenging, which encourages individuals initiative and participative cooperation.

Pros: Great opportunity for promotion
Cons: Normal working hours

A Day in ABSA

My most challenging aspect was the language barriers, so to ensure that understanding was there and that all parties was on par I would encapsulate all meetings held and email step by step information as well as the detailed minutes of the meeting, with actions and dues dates. If feedback was required this would be added to the meeting minutes so that feedback and timelines are kept. I enjoyed every aspect of my work, no matter how challenging i would seek advice and try to find solutions that fits all.

Pros: Collaboration between various segments and levels across africa
Cons: Long working hours
