Productive workplace

It was nice to work as part of a bigger team and feel included in decisions and planning. I felt valued and that my contribution mattered; I was promoted in my first 6 months and if circumstances were different, I would have loved to stay on.


Communication from the top down was excellent


Remote working was not an option

Very stressful and demanding environment. Being in this environment ahs enabled me to manage time more efficiently and achieving more deliverables, Management approach for career advancement is very biased and is centred on BEE status and non recognition of individual achievements. Workplace culture is excellent. Failing to get recognition for individual efforts and achievements. I can honestly say that I have gained recognition in both the private and government sector and now value the expertise and knowledge gained over the years having worked for this company.


Good pension and medical aid + 13th cheque


Tight deadlines, stressful but competetive

Productive workplace

On a daily basis it would be my responsibility to keep the project team informed of any deviations that I may have spotted on site during my routine walk about , in terms of the quality it must be measured accurately and be realistic to ensure that the Project requirements and specifications are being met at all times for the best of the Project. It is my best side to be in touch with different people different cultures and be equal to everyone where possible no matter your race or back ground in a professional way.


Different inviroment on site no day is the same.
