Due to the economic climate and corruption with tenders in South-Africa, Murray and Roberts' Power & Water industry is struggling to win tenders for profitable jobs. As one of the last construction and Project management companies in South Africa not running bankrupt, it is relying on their mining platform to stay afloat until corruption is removed from the country. The environment was extremely high pressure with a steep learning curve, but posed ample opportunities to lead and manage people from physically managing construction works, coordinating projects, and acting as a bid leader on multiple tenders for large projects provided me with a strong technical knowledge base of the construction industry - business and technical aspects, understanding of people and management expectations, and also with teamwork skills applicable across the board. All the while trying to find the most efficient and cost effective way of tackling problems.
Iam an experienced LHD/drill rig operator looking for best future basically in underground mines in Australia, Canada or DRC hopefully my dreams will be settled.
