Challenging postion but very fulfilling

It is a great organisation to work for. The publication and promotion section functions quite differently from the rest of the organisation as the tasks are not library related in the sense that for the position of editor one does not require a library qualification but a journalist qualification.

Loads of benefits and job security.

A great space for learning and collaboration. Bureaucracy is ultimately what makes the job difficult. The knowledge that your work can make a positive impact on citizens is very rewarding.

Engagement at strategic level with stakeholders in the province

A great place to work and learn about skills development on a strategic level as well as about the education pipeline from general to post-school education. Identifying the gaps between supply and demand and addressing systemic issues to minimize the gap was is the most enjoyable and hardest part.

Pros

Bursary and housing benefit

Cons

limited advancement

It is a professional environment to work in which trains you to always remain proficient in the workplace, it is seen as a huge benefit.

My work space has given me the opportunity to enjoy what I am doing including the rest of the staff that are very friendly and do not ill treat anybody lower or higher than themselves. It is with great pleasure to work in a professional environment and to broaden my horizons to get experience in the career field I would like to grow in.

Pros

Happy Staff

Well organised but not to strict

Everyday was managed and set out perfectly, Everyone new what had to be done and they made sure it was done. I've learnt the fundamentals about running a workplace through my internship. When I was appointed as office manager I learn that everything as a certain process. Hardest part was controlling everything at once but i soon got use to it. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that everyone was treated as equal whether you were a intern or supervisor,.

Pros

People are helpful

Cons

Workers can be a bit to talkative at times

Productive Place

Filled with mentors willing to teach you whatever it is you want to know or learn about. One can just consult them and they will gladly be of assistance. I have been given my own mentor to assist me with any queries and questions I may have. I enjoy it here and would come back one day when I have the proper qualifications.

Job security

Been working for the Department of the Premier for 5 years. Started working as a messenger and still a messenger today. Always applying for other higher level posts but in vain. Been doing my best to collect as much exposure at other areas of work but it doesn't seem to help. Have worked as helpdesk operator and currently acting as admin clerk but still doing my driving duties. Management do not recognise or appreciate hardwork ad commitment.

Pros

free short courses
