Excellent learning curve, quick learner and willing learn new systems

My typical work of the is to attend needs of the clients ,give support where is needed and do administrative work. I enjoy working with my co workers because we support each other. I've learnt that in every thing you do meet the deadline and punctuality is important. I enjoy working under pressure and in fast paced environment. The most challenging of the job is, you must make sure everything you do is up to date, check errors before submitting and effective work.

Pros: Great opportunity to get opportunity and be permanent
Cons: Over time and long hours

EXCELLENT LEARNING CURVE

Working for the Department of work needs somebody who is on their toes 24/7. It is a difficult Department to work in as it deals with peoples lives. You get complaints almost every single day irrespective of which office you are in. You need to be able to assist people by directing them to the right official, clinic, hospital or District. It is very important to know the medical terminology as to know what they are talking about. The Health Department has taught me a lot, I have learnt to work with people and also work independently, I have learnt to work under pressure, I have learnt to understand the departmental Cash flow as I am also a member of the Cash-flow Committee for the office of the Head of Health.

Pros: GREAT EXPERIENCE
Cons: long working hours

Well experienced and willing to learn new things

Advertising, selection and recruitment. Worked as a team especially in projects such as verifications of qualifications etc. I've learned that I should prioritize my work and treat client well and apply the Batho Lele Principle. The area which I really enjoyed was the consultation with clients and attending to all kinds of related queries. The most challenging aspects in my job was submission of monthly/ quarterly reports, this was caused by late and non submission from the institutions and other managers and I ended up making efforts by going extra miles , travelling in order to get them

Pros: I can manage to run the section by myself since I I'm well trained and I've acquired more skills including leadership and management skills.
Cons: Due to the large size of the Department, I was expected to work overtime at some stage in order to meet the deadlines.

Challenges becomes great learning curves that helps in future problem troubleshooting

qualification in a work place for became just a paper seeing how the exposure in a workplace can increase ones way of doing things and managing your own work being self motivated and a team player. working in an environment of more than 500 workers engaging with different people everyday one learns how to communicate and treat people equally because of the nature of their work and stress level, patience not easily angered are some of the other things i have learned.

Pros: exposure to many departments redirects and one finds themselves
Cons: working long hours to get the work done before due dates
