Kirby Lee Struwig

East London, South Africa


I am an energetic and hardworking individual with the ability to learn quickly. I am very independent and am able to work and cope well under pressure. I am too a rational, logically and analytical thinker with excellent time management. I adapt easily to new environments and am able to interact with others at all levels. I posses the eagerness to grow my knowledge and experience. My short term objective is to be part of an organization in which I can develop my existing skills and abilities and grow within the company. I feel that obtaining a post related to my skills and studies within an established company would afford me the opportunity I need to enable my own success within the company. I feel that I am an asset as an employee and through my combined acquired skills and education I will make a positive and significant contribution to my employer. I would like to direct my career path to lead me in the financial and managerial field.
