It is of importance to me that I make a difference in the company I am employed by. Furthermore, I am committed to personal growth and self-development on both a personal and professional level, and as such I enjoy tackling new challenges, developing new skills and contributing to the success of the company I am employed by. In my position at Bloy I was initially employed as a front-desk receptionist, but the role was rapidly expanded into that of an all-round Office Administrator. As is the case with many small businesses, we were all required to cover off many areas so apart from overseeing the front desk and general office management, I had to provide support to the General Manager and consultants in many different ways. Bloy was acquired by a much bigger group, Seequent, in 2016 and my critical areas of responsibility remain: • Administrative Assistant to Senior Management • General Office Management • Financial Assistant • Travel Coordinator Computer skills include Microsoft Word, Excel & PowerPoint. I have had considerable exposure to financial accounting packages, namely Xero and NetSuite. In addition, I have been working on maintaining the CRM (Client Relationship Manager) database while at Seequent. Seequent SA, a subsidiary of an international company based in New Zealand, acquired Bloy in 2016. All my former duties at Bloy were carried across to the new company but with the added responsibility brought on by the growth of the business; the staff complement was doubled in South Africa and an office opened in Johannesburg. Senior management now included a new Regional Director based in Gauteng and a Commercial Manager in George as well as the existing GM, all of whom require support and assistance. Currently my main areas of responsibility are: General Office Management – supervising and assisting the receptionist in the smooth operation of the office, ensuring the office is clean and well stocked in terms of all supplies at all times. Travel Coordination – a significant time component of my role (described in more detail in the Bloy section below) as the business is global with sales reps and consultants on the road for most of their time. CRM Maintenance – ensuring the CRM Accounts are updated and correct by working with Project Geologists and the Commercial Manager Financial Administration – as assistant to the Finance Administrator, maintenance and reconciliation of petty cash, employee expense returns, and invoicing related to travel. Diary Management – maintaining and supporting the sales teams’ diaries for the Africa Region.
