Good staff development policies

At the Engineering Council of South Africa, I have worked in different departments and have been exposed to all the business dealings of the organization. My current position mainly entails benchmarking, research and identifying best practice to develop concepts, policies and models. As the development happens customization to meet our specific organizational requirements. Good relationships with colleagues has assisted greatly as all ideas that I come with I request inputs and comments which has assisted me greatly in achieving success with my projects. Every aspect of my job they were enjoyable and yet quite challenging. The most challenging aspects in the current position has been the unavailability of resources to support my work but again, my requests to other colleagues to assist with menial tasks.

Pros: Great benefits
Cons: High staff turnover at Executive Level which causes a lot of problems for excellent results to be achieved.

Good Company

ECSA is a good company to work for. I have learned a lot about the company and the process of becoming a professional engineer/overall engineering industry. I enjoy interacting with our clients as well as applicants from all parts of the world, as we are registering international engineers as well. The most challenging part is when you are unable to provide a good service to a client because our work as call centre agents is dependent on others. Dealing with international clients or applicants who can't speak English. I have built a sound relationships with co-workers and get along with them very well.

Pros: Free Lunch

Broader exposure

Business processes analysis and re-engineering, research and benchmarking; auditing compliance to due processes and policies and providing an advisory service to executives, managers and other staff members. Quite approachable and a resource to many. Working in an environment where the main responsibilities of the organisation are done by the volunteers, I have learnt the best engagement models that breeds success. Finding lasting solutions that are internationally aligned is both challenging and highly interesting..

Pros: Great opportunity for understanding the entire engineering fraternity which may leading to opportunities elsewhere
Cons: Long working hours
