Strong financial background

Very briefly, I feel this is a great opportunity for me to expand on my knowledge and contribute my working experience gained over the past few years in the finance industry. I am currently a Portfolio Support Officer ( in the Wealth and Investment cluster) for a reputable financial institution. I belong in a team of 8 Financial Specialists, with different functions that collaborate together harmoniously. I've multi skilled in most of these functions and have become a strong member in the team. I also have just under 2 years' experience as a full functional Bookkeeper submitting tax returns and completing Financial Statements for various companies, company registrations with CIPRO amongst other functions. Please refer to my cv for detailed information. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you.

Pros: Excellent working environment

Happiness from clients

Working at Absa gave me confidence, I can work with different types of people sometimes you work with difficult ones some moody but still work with them and be able to ignore their moods and coming to difficult customers I make sure they go out of the bank happy and satisfied, I remember I had a client who was complaining about her notify me and when I check on the system it shows it was fine and I deleted the notification on the system but it didnt report then I checked on the phone only to find she blocked the numbers that deliverers the Absa notifications so she was happy she even bought me a chocolate because she went to all the branches for one and nobody helped her she was even thinking of closing her Absa account so it was her last visit and she was happy.

Pros: Its actually makes me happy when I talk to customers
Cons: Working the whole day feels great because you dont think of bad stuff happening around your life so it takes you to think about the future
