To tell you a little about myself, I currently work as Project and Quality Assurance Manager for Wooding Geospatial Solutions in Hillcrest. WGS specialises in aerial survey and GIS, however, I am looking to make my way into the environmental consulting field. I have dual citizenship for South Africa and the United Kingdom with valid passports for both countries and currently reside in Kloof, KZN. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal (UKZN) where I have studied the mining geo-technical engineering and geo-environmental aspects of geology, as well as practical application of GIS technology. I am currently enrolled at the University of South Africa (UNISA) in a Bachelor of Science Honours degree in Environmental Monitoring and Modelling which I am completing part time. Following my graduation, I plan to apply for professional registration as a Natural Scientist and pursue further post-graduate work on a part time basis. At WGS, my position has granted me a myriad of skills and experiences which I now use to maintain a smooth workflow from project initiation to project completion. As the project manager, I am responsible for writing proposals, initiating projects for clients, quoting and invoicing clients, tracking hours worked and progress achieved, reporting on final deliverables and performing QA/QC checks on all data supplied to the client. Other duties involve preparing meeting notes for the annual QA meeting, auditing the QA management system, maintaining important documentation and records, and other administrative tasks. I have completed certification for ISO 9001:2015 and the South African Civil Aviation Authority, which enables me to be the Internal Quality Assurance Manager. WGS has offered me the chance to greatly improve upon my technical skills first introduced during my degree. I am highly proficient at using various GIS software packages such as ArcGIS, QGIS, and Global Mapper for data manipulation and analysis. I have some experience in CAD packages including AutoDesk and Microstation. I also have experience in remote sensing for environmental monitoring using PCI Geomatica software. I do also have experience in using various program specific scripting languages to automate processes for large data sets. Please refer to my attached CV for a in depth description of my experience and technical knowledge. My interpersonal skills are excellent and I maintain a professional disposition at all times. I am highly efficient at any task set before me and I understand the various aspects of managing a project. My organisational skills allow me to keep track of all tasks to be completed and I can provide an updated review at any stage of the project. I am a flexible individual and can easily adapt to any new changes. I would greatly appreciate the chance to learn in a new environment. I am in possession of a code B drivers license and have my own car. Thank you for taking the time to consider my application. I look forward to hearing from you.
