Le Roux - Recruitment Consultant - Pretoria, South Africa

Maronel Le Roux

Pretoria, South Africa

Summary

I started my career in the hospitality industry. After gaining my Diploma in Hotel Management I worked in several guest relation roles within the industry.

Upon relocating to the United Arab Emirates I took on a more supportive role in the administrative department of my employer, gaining experience in the ever growing construction and engineering industry of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, within the scope of Consultancy and Project Management Services to respective clients.

I am also certified with IOSH (Institution of Occupational Health & Safety) as Safety, Heath & Environment plays such great role within any work environment.

Currently I am working in the recruitment industry, recruiting mainly, among others, for the Engineering / Mining sector.

I am a determined and driven individual who loves gaining extended experience in the role I am employed in. My goal is to add value and apply what I learn. I am courteous and tactful, loyal and work well within a team and as an individual.
