Nkomo - Junior Communications Officer - Vosloorus, South Africa

Mbali Nkomo

Vosloorus, South Africa

Summary

I hold a BA Corporate communications Degree from the University of Johannesburg.

I've recently completed an internship as Communications Officer with the Presidency of the Republic of South Africa attached to the office of the former Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe.

My 12 months stay with the office has exposed me to Media Liaison; which involves a lot of research and writing. I also contributed articles to the internal communication electronic publications.

I have experience in Media Liaison, Reception/Admin, Retail and being a Brand Ambassador.

I have a great will to learn, exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, hard-working, diligent in my work and I don't settle for average when excellence can be achieved.
