Due to my passion for the environment I enjoy environmental education and I am comfortable and competent in designing and implementing my own experience lessons for children and adults alike.

I have previously taken on the responsibilities of my EPWP Supervisor when my supervisor he was on training for the duration of 2 weeks. I was given the responsibility of overseeing and managing my colleagues, preparing the tools for the specific task and make sure everyone signed their time sheet dail, making sure I checked and singed any lose tools, taking care of company vehicles making sure they wash each and very Friday preparing the oncoming week.

I am a good team player and work easily with people in positions of authority. I have no problems with following orders and can work just as effectively by myself as I can in a team. I am a hard worker and do not mind working after hours or in a weather conditions if it is required. I am currently doing my driver`s

The day is experiential. I have learned how to deal with community society and their community lifestyle. The management is understanding. The workplace culture is to start on time and willingness to work overtime. Working alone outside in the crime dominated environment is the hardest part of the job. Interacting with different individuals with different cultures is the most enjoyable.
Pros
long lunch breaks
Cons
Strikes

When its windy and you had to run after papers and start looking at you like if you are crazy.
to keep quite and do your work to the best of your abilities.

sometimes it feels like nothing that you done were recognising from management side,but can also be versa vice.

good to interact with different kind of cultures,it got the advantages and disadvantages.

just obey and do your work properly and there be no hardest part.

when you look back at your days work,and knows you happy reason management is also happy.
Cons
8hrs.
