About Ockert

Phone verified

I, Ockert Fourie, hereby want to express my desire to apply for work. I uphold high standards and always do my work to the best of my ability. I am eager and very willing to learn if I am not familiar with a technique or a method. I have gained experience in a wide range of fields from 2003 to 2020 including plumbing, waitering, installing network technology, chemical research, chemical analysis and film editing. In addition I have obtained a degree in BSc. I.T. in 2008 as well as a post graduate honours degree in chemistry in 2009 at the University of the Free State. My academic experience has also helped me obtain a job at Aspen Pharmacare as a Senior Project Chemist. I have varsity experience of physical, organic, inorganic and analytical chemistry, which includes GC and UV/VIS, as well as theoretical experience of HPLC and IR Spectroscopy. In addition I have acquired two years worth of experience as Method Development and Validation analyst at Aspen Pharmacare in the Group Product Upgrade department. As validation analyst I have gained further practical and theoretical experience with the above-mentioned techniques. I possess basic theoretical knowledge of organic chemistry, as well as retro-synthesis techniques, polymer chemistry and organo-metallic chemistry. I pride myself in being fully committed and loyal to each project I undertake. This is reflected in the fact that I have successfully completed the 2010 and 2012 “Specsavers Ironman” endurance triathlon, as well as being promoted to Senior Method Development and Validation analyst within just six months of employment, without any prior HPLC experience. I am also able to motivate my peers in whichever environment I am, and regard myself as a team-player, always willing to go the extra mile.
