Inundated with emails throughout the day. I have learned to priorities certain aspects of my job role. I believe in teamwork therefore liaise with my colleagues throughout the day. Eg. Drafting of priorities on a draw board and executing those 1st. The hardest part of the job is reporting to 2 mangers. One in country and your direct up line, out of country. The most enjoyable part of my job role and client satisfaction, whereby you have assisted an employee and manager to the best of your ability and both parties walk out satisfied

A typical day would noit be an IBM day without constant pressure which is always great.I started out with no knoweledge about HR and in less than 6 months i have become a subject matter expert on leaves ofr South Africa and 18 African countries.We are a very dynamic team, who support each other greatly.The hardest part of my job is the fact that we work across numerous timelines and have to schedule calls earlier in the morning or late in the evenings and often on Sundays.I enjoy working with various types of people across all cultures and walks of life.
Pros
career growth
Cons
long hours and no work life balance and salary
