Senior Accounting clerk.

Working at the department has been a huge learning curve, I gain more knowledge on how to capture the district budget, control RLS 01, control petty cash claims, how to use BAS, SAP and Persal systems. Relationships with co-worker is very good, everyone is friendly and willing to share information, they are patient and very kind. Most challenges about the job is being accurate and focused. Everything is numbers and huge amounts of money we work with. Concentration is key I love that i am learning and enjoying the challenges. I love when i am balancing with formulas and amounts on points.

Pros: Financial manager/ supervisor
Cons: Long working hours and load of work

I have experience of admin and I'm a hard worker

It has been a challenge to work at department of education but that is not an excuse, through out the year I have learned how to communicate with fellow colleagues, public and how to deal with challenges you may come across with co-workers. I have learned about organization policies such as PAIa and PAJA. My responsibility was on switchboard, typing and making copies for the organization and the being responsible of post mails. Ensuring that they a delivered to the HOD and MEC offices and other departments by the internal messenger. I loved the way our Senior Manager treated us. She give us the responsibilities that made us to be opened minded at work

Pros: there were no oppurtunities
Cons: 07:30-16:30

Great understanding of the Public Sector

I have learnt a lot from this internship, ranging from administrative work, to investigative work and writing reports and compiling submissions. I got to use some of my research skills and facts evaluation skills. My senior co-workers are willing to share information and knowledge. This kind of work requires a lot of travelling around the Province which has helped me get to know different kinds of people and to network with different types of stakeholders.

Pros: It is a great opportunity to learn and understand how the public sector works and operates
Cons: Long working hours sometimes.
