Melody Van Niekerk

Durban, KZN, South Africa

Summary

Have numerous skills as I endeavour to learn from everything I do aside from post School courses done.

Can honestly say that I have loved every position that I have ever worked in. I endeavour to succeed in everything I do, not only for personal gratification but so that I can respect myself and be respected by others.

I have positive outlook, easy going, adapt easily; am effective in establishing good relationships with others i.e.: colleagues, clients and managerial staff; have a professional attitude; skilled in presenting ideas and organising; am successful in setting and meeting goals and also able to keep detailed records and write reports;

Being self motivated I am dependable and hardworking, loyal; I enjoy working in a team, however I have no problem working on my own as I am capable of doing so.

I am one of those people that dislike being told that it's impossible to do something as I believe that there has to be a way to accomplish something that is required.
